George Clinton is ready to say goodbye to the road. The almost 78-year-old legendary performer just announced his final tour with Parliament-Funkadelic , dubbed the “One Nation Under a Groove Tour.”
“I would love to keep on doing this but I’ll be 78 in a few more months,” he tells “Rolling Stone.” “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 final tour, featuring openers Galactic, Dumpstaphunk, Fishbone and Miss Velvet and the Blue Wolf on select dates, officially kicks off May 26 th in Chillicothe, Illinois, wrapping August 18 th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
