CLEVELAND — The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is adding legendary funk recording act and inductee George Clinton’s “One Nation Under a Groove” farewell tour to its jam-packed Rock Hall Live! powered by PNC summer schedule.

The farewell tour takes over the Rock Hall’s PNC Stage on the plaza with a celebration that includes opening acts Dumpstaphunk and Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf at 7 p.m. July 20.

Tickets prices include Rock Hall admission. Available are VIP packages that include access to an intimate conversation with Clinton during a Hall of Fame Series interview in Foster Theater at 5:30 p.m.  and a premium concert experience. Visit ticketing.rockhall.com for details.

Rock Hall Live! performances run through Labor Day with plenty of music alongside over 100 unique events and activities on the Rock Hall plaza. Most of the live shows, including its five-week Summer in the City concerts showcasing new talent, along with Lunch by the Lake and Sun Sets featuring local artists and DJs, are free to the public, providing everyone the opportunity to experience live music and engage with rock and roll.

“The Rock Hall and its programing, including Rock Hall Live!, elevate the city as a premiere destination for visitors from around the world. It’s also a great asset for Cleveland residents and economic benefit to the City,” said Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson.

“We hope residents take advantage of the Rock Hall’s packed summer schedule and our new exhibits,” said Rock Hall CEO & President Greg Harris. “The Rock Hall showcases an incredible lineup of Inductees, new talent and local musicians and DJs all summer long as we continue our mission to engage, teach and inspire through the power of rock and roll.”

“Since opening its doors in 1995, the Rock Hall has generated $2 billion for the Northeast Ohio region and welcomed more than 12 million guests to Cleveland,” said Patrick Pastore, PNC regional president for Cleveland. “PNC is excited to help the Rock Hall keep that momentum going with a summer full of exciting artists and events.”

New exhibits at the Rock Hall this summer include Forever Warped: 25 Years of Vans Warped Tour, Woodstock 50, and the 2019 Inductee exhibit. A new interactive exhibit, The Garage, opening July 1, lets visitors play, pick up an instrument and jam.

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.
