George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic have announced a forthcoming tour, dubbed One Nation Under a Groove, beginning on June 15 at Summerstage in New York City. The tour will feature support by The Motet, Dopapod and Pimps of Joytime; select stops will include special guests, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and The Floozies.
Following Clinton’s retirement in 2018, fans expected One Nation Under a Groove Tour to be his last. However, after the success of the tour, Clinton decided to stay on the road. With a career spanning 50 years, he continues to entertain crowds with electrifying live shows.
“George Clinton has singlehandedly done more to push music forward than any other artist I can recall,” says Nick Scatmari of Universal Attractions Agency, who has represented Clinton and his band for the past 15 years and co-created the forthcoming tour. He continued, “This tour represents that ‘big tent’ he’s created that includes so many generations.”
One Nation Under a Groove co-creator, Jeff Epstein adds, “George has influenced artists across so many cultures, generations, genres. Our musical lives would not be the same if we never had George Clinton, and this is a once in a lifetime chance to come together and witness first hand the next chapter of his iconic career being written before our eyes.”
Presale begins Wednesday, March 23. Tickets will go on sale to the general public, Friday, March 25 at 12 p.m. EST.
