R&B singer D'Angelo has canceled his scheduled appearance at Outside Lands this weekend "due to a medical emergency," festival representatives announced this morning.

Instead, CHIC -- the funk-disco vehicle of guitarist and recent Daft Punk collaborator Nile Rodgers -- will perform at 6:05 p.m. Friday on the Sutro stage.

"We hope that D'Angelo has a speedy recovery, and we are grateful to Nile Rodgers and CHIC for stepping in at this late hour," says Allen Scott of Another Planet Entertainment. "CHIC is still one of the greatest live bands around and I can guarantee that they are going to bring the party to Outside Lands on Friday."

Commenters: If you don't know who D'angelo is, you should really look into it. If you don't know what Nile Rodgers and Chic is, you should really look into it. Kudos to Outside Lands for their excellent response to a last-minute situation.
