Having previously been confirmed to perform at Byron Bay Bluesfest in April, Clinton and co. will join the Red Hot Chili Peppers on eight stops of their Australian tour, taking in Adelaide on Sunday, March 3.
Clinton and the Red Hot Chili Peppers have history. Before honing their FM radio-conquering modern rock sound, the band's early funk-rock period was heavily indebted to the work of Clinton and his array of rotating collaborators under the Parliament Funkadelic umbrella.
This tour marks the 77-year-old Clinton's final lap around Australia as he prepares to retire from touring in May 2019, giving South Australian fans a last minute opportunity to see him, and his eye-popping stage-show, one last time.
The Adelaide 500's weekend of post-race festivities will also include performances from Oz rock survivors Jet and The Living End, and pop balladeers Vance Joy and Amy Shark.
