15 shows announced for George Clinton's farewell tour with Parliament Funkadelic

ONE NATION UNDER A GROOVE
George Clinton to Embark on Farewell Tour with Parliament Funkadelic

Capping over 50 years of touring and recording, George Clinton is set to embark on his final tour with the legendary Parliament Funkadelic before he retires.  Joining P-Funk to send this icon of American pop culture off with a BANG are Galactic, Dumpstaphunk, Fishbone, and Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf.  Parliament Funkadelic has no plans of slowing down, even with their helmsman moving on. “It’s always been about the music and the band" says the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, "That’s the real P-Funk legacy. They’ll still be funkin’ long after I stop.”

Tickets On-sale Beginning Friday February 9th


Starting after Memorial Day weekend the group will hit the road in North America with the “One Nation Under a Groove Tour”. Joining P-Funk to send this icon of American pop culture off with a BANG are Galactic, Dumpstaphunk, and Fishbone, and Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf all of whom are taking time out of their own busy schedules to hit the road with the Grammy-winning, once-rainbow-dreaded pioneer of Funk, Hip Hop, and Rock & Roll.  The tour coincides with Clinton receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Grammys at a special ceremony on May 11th. 

After joining Red Hot Chili Peppers for a 9 city tour of Australia Feb-March, George and P-Funk follow up with their own Australian headline tour in April where they will hit the legendary Bluesfest stage in Byron Bay, and a stint in Japan at Billboard Live. 





Headlines


"After five decades of life on tour buses and Motherships, George Clinton is ready to retire from the road. The U.S. dates of his long goodbye, which he’s dubbed the One Nation Under a Groove Tour, will kick off this spring and run through August.

“It’s coming right on time,” Clinton tells Rolling Stone, saying the announcement is part of a plan he conceived a few years ago. It’s the next step after releasing his 2014 memoir, Brothas Be, Yo Like George, Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard On You? as well as Funkadelic’s 2014 album, First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate and Parliament’s 2018 album, Medicaid Fraud Dogg." - Rolling Stone

"If you want to watch the original master of funk do his thing, you’ve got one more year. Parliament/Funkadelic frontman/producer George Clinton is set to retire from touring in 2019."
