We’ll be sure to keep you updated as the “One Nation Under A Groove” continues to take shape.

In April, George Clinton announced that he is going to retire from touring in May 2019. The Parliament/Funkadelic frontman, who turned 77 in July, has now officially announced his final outing, the “One Nation Under A Groove” tour, which will feature a variety of artist lineups to celebrate George Clinton’s final dates at the helm of the Mothership.

Capping over 50 years of touring and recording, George Clinton & P-Funk will be joined by Galactic, Dumpstaphunk, and Fishbone, all of whom are taking time out of their own busy touring schedules to hit the road with the Grammy-winning, formerly-rainbow-dreaded funk, hip-hop, and rock & roll pioneer. The specific stops and dates for the tour have yet to be announced.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer recently underwent pacemaker surgery. However, Clinton emphasized that the surgery had no direct influence on his decision regarding stopping touring. As Clinton notes, “It’s always been about the music and the band. That’s the real P-Funk legacy. They’ll still be funkin’ long after I stop.”

In January, Clinton revived his long-dormant funk outfit Parliament for the group’s first album in nearly four decades. Dubbed Medicaid Fraud Dogg, the record was a long-awaited follow up to the band’s 1980 LP, Trombipulation. The record’s titular track is slow-burning funk groove, female background singers, hand-clapping beat and a guest appearance by Geto Boys rapper Scarface, the song is a hodgepodge of sounds that harkens back to Parliament’s heyday while also embracing more modern musical styles.
