Nile Rodgers and Chic perform Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' for the first time – watch

Rodgers worked on 2013 hit with French duo and Pharrell Williams

Nile Rodgers performed 'Get Lucky', his collaboration with Daft Punk, for the first time at a live show in France over the weekend. See above to watch him and Chic play the song now.

Despite it being released in April 2013, Daft Punk have yet to play live in concert since their return and Rodgers has always refused to put 'Get Lucky' into Chic live sets, preferring instead to play the song over the PA as the band say goodbye at the end of shows.

However, during a performance at Montereau Fault-Yonne in France this changed, as you can see in the video. Rodgers has not yet commented on why he chose to start playing the song. Pharrell Williams, the other collaborator on the original song, also plays it in his live solo show.

Many other artists have covered 'Get Lucky' in the last 12 months, including Daughter, Peace, Mystery Jets, Fall Out Boy and Wilco. In February the Russian police performed the song as part of the Winter Olympics 2014 Opening Ceremony in Sochi.
