George Clinton bringing farewell tour to Pittsburgh’s Rivers Casino
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 RiversCasino.com.
