George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic Tease Final Tour, Drop Summer 2023 Dates

George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic Tease Final Tour, Drop Summer 2023 Dates

George Clinton and his Parliament-Funkadelic brethren have released an extensive list of tour dates that will take the crew from coast-to-coast this summer. The run has been dubbed Just For The Funk Of It! Final Tour?!? and arrives after Clinton’s most recent so-called farewell jaunt last summer.

The funk icons run will commence on July 27 in Reno, Nev., before following up the next evening with a show in Napa, Calif., where the ensemble is expected to participate in the Blue Note Jazz Festival. Next, they will pick up a pair of Pacific Northwest dates slated for Portland, Ore., and Seattle before moving on to the middle of the country. 

In continuation of the impending summer tour, the bandleader and his team of collaborators will take stands in Oklahoma and Texas in addition to an August 8 performance in Atlanta. Ensuing gigs in North Carolina will set up the group’s arrival in Boston on August 17.

Next, the crew is scheduled to play a show in Port Chester, N.Y. Then, they’ll return to the road on August 19, trekking over to Montclair, N.J., up until the time arrives for their show in Mashantucket, Conn., a few short days later, on August 20.

The so-called, Just For The Funk Of It! Final Tour?!? will take the musicians through Pittsburgh and Cleveland and continues with stops in Indianapolis before the last August date, which will occur in Louisville, Ky. A lone Nov. 25 concert is set to take place in Oakland, Calif., and serves as the band’s last date of this tour. 

On the road, Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic will welcome special guests Fishbone, Dumpstaphunk and George Porter Jr., who will join the headliners in select cities.

Despite the tour’s name, it has not been confirmed that this will be the final run of dates for Clinton and the ensemble. The bandleader has a history of taking breaks from the road and embarking on periods of retirement.

George Clinton Announces Final Tour With Parliament-Funkadelic

By Matthew Strauss

George Clinton

Last year, George Clinton revealed that he would retire from touring in 2019 . Now, he’s announced his final tour with his legendary group Parliament-Funkadelic . The “One Nation Under a Groove Tour” officially kicks off on May 30 and wraps up in August. Find George Clinton’s full schedule below; purchase tickets here .

“I would love to keep on doing this but I’ll be 78 in a few more months,” George Clinton told Rolling Stone in a new interview. “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.”

This May, Parliament-Funkadelic will receive a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award . “As I’m getting ready to get a lifetime achievement award and all of that, there’s so many people that’s been in the band, it’s hard to even pick who all the people are,” Clinton said to RS . “So people won’t get to see a lot of people, but still that award will belong to everybody that’s participated in making the P-Funk what it is. It will be for all the people that’s ever been through the P-Funk army.”

George Clinton Details Final Tour With Parliament-Funkadelic

By Kory Grow

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 .

“I would love to keep on doing this but I’ll be 78 in a few more months,” he says. “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 tour, which officially kicks off after Memorial Day weekend (though Clinton is playing some farewell tour dates beforehand), will variously feature openers Galactic, Dumpstaphunk, Fishbone and Miss Velvet and the Blue Wolf. Tickets for most shows go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. local time. Pre-sales will start on February 7th; more information is available at Clinton’s website .

The Parliament-Funkadelic band features several musicians who have been in the lineup for the last decade, as well as a handful — trumpeter Bennie Cowan, saxophonist Greg Thomas, bassist Lige Curry and guitarist Blackbird McKnight — who have been with the group for 30 years or longer. It also features many of Clinton’s descendants.

The tour’s title recalls both the 1978 album, One Nation Under a Groove , and blockbuster single of the same name. Clinton says the song’s message of unity is just as important today as it was when he wrote it. “Funk to me was just that groove that united everything,” he says. “So you could be funky no matter what kind of music you played. There’s a funk element somewhere that can be put into it. And the idea of one nation with everybody together [applies to] not only one nation, but one planet.”

Editor’s picks

Every awful thing trump has promised to do in a second term, the 250 greatest guitarists of all time, the 500 greatest albums of all time, the 50 worst decisions in movie history.

The tour, created by Universal Attractions Agency, coincides with Clinton receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Grammys at a special ceremony on May 11th. It’s an honor that means a lot to him, since it’s a chance for him to recognize the dozens of P-Funk musicians who’ve played with him over the years. “It’s never been about me or no particular thing,” Clinton says. “The whole truth has always been what it’s about. As I’m getting ready to get a lifetime achievement award and all of that, there’s so many people that’s been in the band, it’s hard to even pick who all the people are. So people won’t get to see a lot of people, but still that award will belong to everybody that’s participated in making the P-Funk what it is. It will be for all the people that’s ever been through the P-Funk army.”
