George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic have announced the One Nation Under A Groove tour. The band will be joined by a number of artists along the way, including the Motet, Dopapod, the Pimps of Joytime, along with a number of special guests.
Clinton had previously announced his retirement in 2018, regarding his 2019 One Nation Under A Groove tour as a farewell run. However, in 2021 he revealed his return to music, announcing that he felt physically fit and eager to resume his work.
Now, Clinton will hit the road in June along with his legendary collective Parliament-Funkadelic. During the run, the band will hit a number of major cities across the country, including performances at New York’s Summerstage in Central Park and the new YouTube Theater in Inglewood, CA.
Ahead of the run, tour co-creators Nick Szatmari and Jeff Epstein of Universal Attractions Agency spoke about the significance of the band.
“George Clinton has singlehandedly done more to push music forward than any other artist I can recall,” Szatmari says. “This tour represents that ‘big tent’ he’s created that includes so many generations.”
Epstein added, “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.”
Thankfully, fans will have an unexpected chance to hear the music that transformed the entire industry. Tickets go on-sale to the general public March 25 at 12 p.m. EDT.
