Funk legend George Clinton has announced 2019 tour dates with his longtime backing band Parliament-Funkadelic.
This run of concerts marks the "final" performances of George Clinton and P-Funk. He reflected about his decision to retire in a comment to Rolling Stone:
I would love to keep on doing this but I’ll be 78 in a few more months... 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. And we’ve been selling out for the last five years, every night.
The newly announced concerts are scheduled to begin in late May and extend into the summer months. Joining the band as the opening acts on select dates will be an eclectic group including Fishbone, Galactic, Dumpstaphunk, Zapp, and Miss Velvet and the Blue Wolf. Stay tuned, we will be updating this page if additional concerts or information becomes available.
