Funk legend George Clinton announces farewell UK our

Funk pioneer George Clinton bids goodbye to the UK with a series of special farewell concerts with Parliament Funkadelic, marking the end of a 50 plus year career funkin’ around the world.

Despite being awarded the lifetime achievement Grammy, George has decided it’s not yet over and will be gracing the UK with his funk-presence, one last time.

George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic revolutionized R&B during the ’70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-’60s acid heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and Sly Stone.

Alongside icons such as James Brown and Sly Stone, George Clinton is synonymous with defining a genre, creating a music movement which is as important now as its inception in the 1970s.
