George Clinton’s “One Nation Under a Groove Tour” is coming to Pittsburgh.

Clinton is bringing his classic brand of psychedelic funk with the legendary Parliament Funkadelic (P-Funk) to The Event Center at Rivers Casino on June 7, at 8 p.m.

It’s part of a farewell tour that begins in May. The current lineup includes veterans Bennie Cowan on trumpet, Greg Thomas on sax, Blackbird McKnight on guitar and Lige Curry on bass. P-Funk also includes younger generations of Clinton’s family who are set to move the legacy forward into the 21st century, according to a press release.

“It’s always been about the music and the band,” Clinton said in the release. “That’s the real P-Funk legacy. They’ll still be funkin’ long after I stop.”

Clinton is a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.

“Don’t miss your chance to see the original master of funk perform live before his retirement,” said Bill Keena, Rivers Casino general manager. “It’s sure to be a special send-off show in The Event Center.”

Tickets are on sale and start at $50. They can be purchased in the Rivers Casino gift shop or at

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
