ANNOUNCE VERY SPECIAL GUESTS GEORGE CLINTON & PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC4th February, 2019
MT DUNEED ESTATE, GEELONG
Joining RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS on their instantly sold out Australian 2019 tour will be the one and only Grandfather of Funk, GEORGE CLINTON & PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC.
By arrangement with the Byron Bay Bluesfest, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic will be very special guests at Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Australian shows this summer including a day on the green’s sold out event at Geelong’s Mt Duneed Estate on Saturday March 2.
Parliament Funkadelic mastermind, George Clinton’s greatest achievement has been his relentless dedication to funk, notably the unique and easily identifiable style affectionately called P-Funk.
Revolutionising R&B during the ’70s, Clinton’s distinct sound experienced a resurgence by the end of the ’80s as a generation of rappers reared on P-Funk were beginning to name-check him. Clinton has since been featured by, or collaborated with, numerous artists including Prince, Primal Scream, 2Pac, Outkast, Blackalicious, Snoop Dogg, Wu-Tang Clan, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino. He is considered one of the most sampled artists ever.
The Chili Peppers’ love and respect for George Clinton goes back more than three decades with the P-Funk legend producing the band’s early funk period album, 1985’s Freaky Styley.
George Clinton will be saying a Funk-a-thon farewell to the land down under as he returns to play his last ever Australian shows.
