Star shaped bass guitar, sparkle studded glasses with suit to match and psychedelic platform boots is what you will see when Bootsy Collins brings “Tha Funk Capital of the World” to the live music capital of the world at ACL Live Sunday, June 19th. What you will hear will be just as crazy, “earth-shaking party grooves” that will rock your world and not disappoint.
Bootsy is the “Man Who Put Bass In Yer Face, the original funk ‘n’ roll wild child, the Godzilla-toned high minister of the all-powerful one.” Inspired by Jimi Hendrix and tutored by no less than James Brown, Bootsy has stomped his way through the last 40 years of music history and lived the high life. He was inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame and received a Grammy with Fat Boy Slim in 2002.
Bootsy is touring now with his new album “The Funk Capital of the World” and bringing “soul-deep rhythms and layered melodies punctuated by lyrics that range from meditations on the nature of truth and spiritual transcendence, to blissed-out joy” to Austin for your enjoyment. Tickets for the ACL Live show go on sale this Friday, April 22 at 10am. Get ya some.
