While George Clinton has announced he's retiring from touring at the end of the year, he's definitely keeping himself more than busy until then. He and Parliament Funkadelic's tour schedule is packed, and they recently closed out the five-day A Taste of Chicago festival in Grant Park on Sunday (7/15). (Black Star headlined Friday.)  Pictures from their set are in the gallery above.

George will land the Mothership on an actual ship in NYC, playing a Rocks Off Concert Cruise on August 3 (tickets). Updated tour dates are listed below.
