As he announced earlier this year, funk legend George Clinton will retire from touring with his longtime group Parliament Funkadelic in the spring of 2019, and today the group announced the “One Nation Under a Groove” farewell tour, which will feature Galactic, Dumpstaphunk and Fishbone.
Although no more dates for next year have been announced, according to a press release, this is “the first in a series of lineups for [Clinton’s] farewell tour in 2019.” See Clinton’s tour schedule here and stay tuned for more “One Nation Under a Groove” announcements.
Back in the spring when he announced his impending retirement, Clinton noted, “This has been coming a long time. Anyone who has been to the shows over the past couple of years have noticed that I’ve been out front less and less.” He added, “It’s never really been about me. It’s always been about the music and the band.”
