A live set from a true renegade of funk
Proving that funk and disco certainly did not begin with Daft Punk and Pharrell, P-funk heavyweight George Clinton returns to Sydney this April with his Parliament/Funkadelic musical collective in tow.

With almost 50 years of musical experience under his belt, a George Clinton live show is a force of nature. The New Jersey native started his musical odyssey back in the late 1950s with his doo-wop group The Parliaments. This morphed into Parliament – a sprawling collective of supremely talented musicians – in the mid-seventies, and the rest is history.

Since then Clinton has handled production duties on records by artists such as Bootsy Collins and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, influenced the G-Funk movement of west coast hip hop with his sound, and built up a formidable catalogue of records and live performances.

On April 1st, Sydney residents have the chance to catch the great man and his incredible team of performers in action when he appears at the Enmore Theatre. With a man like George Clinton, there is no hyperbole, only truth; so believe me when I say that this is an experience not to be missed!

Tickets start at $99.10 and doors are at 7:45pm.
