Funk icon George Clinton is playing B.B. King's on Saturday (4/28, tickets) which is the second-to-last night for the Times Square venue which closes this weekend. But live shows will soon be a thing of the past for Clinton, who tells Billboard he will retire in 2019:

This has been coming a long time. Anyone who has been to the shows over the past couple of years has noticed that I’ve been out front less and less. Truth be told, it’s never really been about me. It’s always been about the music and the band. That’s the real P-Funk legacy. They’ll still be funkin’ long after I stop.

Until then, George is still piloting the Parliament Funkadelic mothership and has a very busy tour schedule ahead, including Mountain Jam, Lockn', and more. All current dates are listed below.
