In 2018, the legendary George Clinton announced that he would retire from touring in 2019. Now, the Funkmaster General has announced his farewell tour. “I would love to keep on doing this but I’ll be 78 in a few more months,” Clinton told Rolling Stone. “Even though I feel like I’m just getting started, the reality is the group needs to go ahead and keep it going. We’ve got a new vibe in the band, and they’ve been carrying it for the last three years. I’ve been up there representing for people, but they’ve actually been turning the place out.”
George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic's One Nation Under a Groove tour--taken from the seminal funk band’s 1978 album and smash hit of the same name--gets underway in the U.S. on March 3 in North Adams, Massachusetts ahead of a handful of Stateside shows including Atlanta and a four-night run in Honolulu, Hawaii.
After a jaunt overseas in Australia (with Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Japan, P-Funk returns to the States to kick off the first U.S. leg propper at Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe, Illinois on May 26. The tour then heads through the Midwest and Northeast including a stop at Franklin Music Hall in Philadelphia on June 6.
After a few weeks off, Clinton and company resume the tour on Aug. 2 in Los Angeles ahead of a West Coast stint including an engagement at Seattle's Showbox SoDo on Aug. 8. George Clinton’s One Nation Under a Groove farewell tour wraps up on Aug. 18 in Las Vegas.
