George Clinton has some extra groove to supply. On Monday, the Godfather of Funk introduced his return from retirement with a Parliament-Funkadelic tour deliberate for this 12 months.
Clinton — who went on a farewell tour in 2019 after asserting his retirement the 12 months prior — will be part of Parliament-Funkadelic for a 17-stop tour throughout the U.S. this summer season.
“George Clinton has singlehandedly achieved extra to push music ahead than some other artist I can recall,” mentioned Nick Szatmari of Common Points of interest Company. “This tour represents that ‘massive tent’ he’s created that features so many generations.”
The group might be bringing alongside a big selection of help on the tour with Dopapod, Pimps of Joytime, the Motet, the Floozies, and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe Fishbone becoming a member of at completely different stops of the tour.
The tour announcement comes as 5 blocks of a road in Plainfield, New Jersey, have been named after Parliament-Funkadelic. “Funkiest block on da planet,” Clinton wrote on Instagram.
