George Clinton has some more groove to offer. On Monday, the Godfather of Funk announced his return from retirement with a Parliament-Funkadelic tour planned for this year.

Clinton — who went on a farewell tour in 2019 after announcing his retirement the year prior — will join Parliament-Funkadelic for a 17-stop tour across the U.S. this summer.

“George Clinton has singlehandedly done more to push music forward than any other artist I can recall,” said Nick Szatmari of Universal Attractions Agency. “This tour represents that ‘big tent’ he’s created that includes so many generations.”

The group will be bringing along a wide array of support on the tour with Dopapod, Pimps of Joytime, the Motet, the Floozies, and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe Fishbone joining at different stops of the tour.

The tour announcement comes as five blocks of a street in Plainfield, New Jersey, were named after Parliament-Funkadelic. “Funkiest block on da planet,” Clinton wrote on Instagram.
