The 10-date tour will begin in Pittsburgh on February 16 and will finish at the Okeechobee Festival in Florida on March 4. The band will perform at a special “Fat Tuesday” celebration on Mardi Gras, February 28, at the B.B. King Blues Club in New York. The idea for the tour came from Nick Szatmari of Universal Attractions Agency, who also produced it.
George Clinton’s Unique Sound and Influence
Clinton’s music blends New Orleans blues, jazz, pop, rock, and gospel. He recorded music in the 1970s under the names Parliament and Funkadelic. His soul music was influenced by several musicians from the late 1960s and created a new genre of music known as funk. His Mothership tour was so influential that a stage prop was included as a permanent installation at the Smithsonian Museum of African American History in Washington, DC.
Clinton and Funkadelic released First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate, a 33-track LP, in 2014. It was the first album released under that name in over 30 years. The remix of the single “Ain’t That Funkin’ Hard on You?” featured performances by Kendrick Lamar and Ice Cube.
Clinton’s music continues to influence contemporary funk, rap, and electronic artists. In 2015, he supplied vocals for “The Lavishments of Light Looking.” It was the first collaboration involving Flying Lotus, Thundercat, and Shabazz Palaces as WOKE. Clinton also co-wrote Kendrick Lamar’s electro-funk single “Wesley’s Theory” on the album To Pimp a Butterfly and provided vocals for the track. Clinton won his first Grammy in 2016 for his contribution to the album.
In August, Clinton was a headliner at the AfroPunk NYC Festival with Tyler, the Creator, and Ice Cube. In September, he performed with Flying Lotus, Shabazz Palaces, and Thundercat at the Brainfeeder at the Bowl event in Los Angeles.

Larger Than Life Concert Series in Las Vegas
The series of shows are called Larger Than Life. The name is taken from the title of the Backstreet Boys’ 1999 hit. The group will perform at The Axis at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
The first concert will take place on March 1, 2017, and the rest will be scattered throughout the next four months, with the final show scheduled for July 1. If the 18-date “trial residency” is successful, it is likely that other dates will be added.
Members of the band said they wanted their shows in Las Vegas to truly be “larger than life.” Fans can expect an energetic party atmosphere where the band will perform all of their classic hits that made them famous.
Planet Hollywood hopes that adding the Backstreet Boys concerts to their entertainment lineup will help draw in diverse audiences, including both millennials and older visitors. Las Vegas attracts visitors of all ages, and millennials and Gen Xers make up over half of the city’s tourists.
Las Vegas Draws in Visitors with Legendary Entertainers
Las Vegas has been trying to turn itself into an entertainment destination similar to New York and Nashville. One way the city is doing that is by offering high-profile celebrities residencies at casinos across the city.
Many performers who were popular in the 1990s have recently had residencies in Las Vegas that drew in crowds from around the world. Staying in one location allows the performers to put on more elaborate shows than they can when they are touring.
