when the P-Funk mob was in germany in the 80' and 90' they always played for 3,5 til 4 hours, Clinton is always there and stays longer as anyone else

I remember when they played the New Regal in Chicago 1992, only at that time they played up to 4-5 hrs tops. And believe me they are no joke!

I went down, it was hot hot hot!! We got there a little late, caught a little over 3 hours, in fact I'm slapping my tape on a cdr right now (before anyone gets mad about 'bootlegging', lemme say the band allows it). Hampton was smoking, Belita Woods was in full effect, Babblin' Kebabie came out (I think he's from Detroit)... great time, even with no smoke s after crossing the tunnel... maybe I'll post pics when I get them developed (film camera, casette recorder, no scanner, yes I am digitally impaired!)
We arrived during "Undisco Kidd" and the packed theatre was jumping. George came out during "Cosmic Slop" and started some sweaty-balls rap which stretched the song to about 25 minutes. "Let's Take It To The Stage" followed, with George quietly singing more of the words and reminding us he still knows them. During "Something Stanks" and "Hard As Steel", Hampton just started wailing, warming up for "Maggot Brain" which followed. The set list was unexceptional (later songs played include "Flashlight", "Knee Deep", "Atomic Dog", "Whole Lotta Shakin'") but the playing was just terrific and the vibe was really upbeat as well.

PS Thanks again to a few anonymous Michiganders who might be lurking here...
