Acclaimed festival, Moovin’, held at Whitebottom Farm in Stockport every year, has created club show, and they’ll be welcoming George Clinton & Parliament this coming May at the Albert Hall.
This will feature the final UK tour of George & Parliament and so will be the very last gig for the legendary funk-ateer in the city.
Moovin will be bringing the same cultured, creative production found at their festivals, including the quirky design and an eye for details that has made it a cult favourite.
Albert Hall will be transported into a mystical adventure filled with wild decor, spectacular performers, magic and surprises to create the ultimate escapist-vibe.
This tour marks the end of a 50 plus year career funkin’ around the world. Despite being awarded the lifetime achievement Grammy, George is still hard at it, selling millions of records and playing thousands of gigs.
The cosmic funk explorer revolutionised R&B during the ’70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-’60s acid heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and Sly Stone. Alongside icons such as James Brown and Sly Stone, George Clinton is synonymous with defining a genre, creating a music movement which is as important now as its inception in the 1970s.
It’s one of the last ever chances to see the greatest funk practitioner there has ever been on UK shores.
