P. Funk

Parliament Funkadelic & Guests

Saturday, July 20, 2019 - 7:00pm

The Rock Hall welcomes 1997 Hall of Fame inductees George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic to perform on their final tour.

Parliament and Funkadelic were the mind-blowing, soul-expanding musical equivalent of an acid trip. They grabbed the funk movement from James Brown and took off running.  This event features special guest performers Dumpstaphunk and Miss Velvet & the Blue Wolf. 

Before the show, George Clinton joins us for an intimate conversation in the Rock Hall's Foster Theater (VIP ticket required). All performances will be outside on our plaza on the PNC Bank stage. 

This event is rain or shine.
