George Clinton had been making music at the elite level for more than half a century in 2018, when he announced that he'd stop touring after a farewell run the following year. But today, the 80-year-old funk pioneer and founder of Parliament-Funkadelic has shared the news that he'll be rejoining the band this summer for 17 performances across the U.S., starting June 15 at New York's Central Park Summerstage.
