Funkadelic Fair St. Louis? It may be so

George Clinton is likely playing this year’s Fair St. Louis.

Wednesday afternoon a Reddit thread appeared stating that one Fair St. Louis headliner would be George Clinton. Clicking through a shared link to George Clinton’s tour schedule revealed that Clinton was indeed listed as playing the July 4th Concert.

A call to a person listed for Fair St. Louis media inquiries said she could not confirm the artist’s appearance.

Shortly before 5:00 p.m. the listing had been removed from Clinton's online tour schedule.

Similar circumstances occurred when the Sammy Hagar prematurely announced the date on his website in January. The Post-Dispatch found the post and was able to confirm Hagar's appearance. 

Fair St. Louis takes place July 2-4.

The previous year’s performers include Blondie and Melissa Ethridge.
