Parliament Funkadelic, a music collective of rotating musicians primarily consisting of the ’60s-era funk bands Parliament and Funkadelic and headed by George Clinton, will play Atlanta Symphony Hall on Aug. 8.

Clinton’s popular collective developed an influential and eclectic form of funk music throughout the ’70s, and he is considered the godfather of funk. 

The collective achieved 13 top 10 hits on the Billboard charts between 1967 and 1983, including six number one hits, including funk staples such as “Give Up the Funk” and “Flash Light.”

Along with Clinton, Parliament Funkadelic was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 and received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award a few years later.

Clinton is billing the tour as his “Farewell Tour,” so this will be one of the last chances to see the  group live on stage.
