George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic Extend Farewell Tour Dates

Lige Curry

George Clinton is holding off on his retirement, opting instead to extend his farewell tour with Parliament Funkadelic into 2020. The funk legend announced in 2018 he’d be stepping back from the band in 2019 but stated he wasn’t able to get to all of his fans in time.

“I’m feeling good and the band is at it’s best – there are just too many fans and too many cities that we were not able to funk this year and we can’t leave them hanging like that,” he said. “So I guess considering all things, what I am saying is, for now, [expletive] retirement!”

Currently, Clinton will have three dates this Winter in the U.S. and a handful during the summer in the UK and Ireland. Parliament Funkadelic has had many fantastic bassists, but the current and longest-standing player is the mighty Lige Curry, who has anchored the collective since 1980. You can hear him holding it down in the band’s stripped-down NPR Tiny Desk Concert:
