Outkast Announces 40 Festival Reunion TourBy: Lindsay McCane - January 14, 2014
To celebrate 20 years together as a musical group, Outkast has announced that they will be performing at over 40 festivals around the world this spring/summer. The tour will begin on Friday, April 11 at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
“It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose,” said Big Boi. “Don’t just think outside the box, know that there is no box. I’m looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans – stank you smelly much, this is for y’all!”
“And imagine, all we wanted to do was rap! I am thankful to have been a part of a group that allowed me to explore anything that came to mind and have fun doing it. Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for their 20 years of supporting Outkast,” said André 3000.
The duo created a new Twitter page, on January 13, for fans to follow to stay updated on upcoming dates and events. “Outkast will return to the stage with a full festival run of over 40 dates to celebrate 20 years. #Outkast20 – Team Outkast,” was the first tweet on the page, and later Big Boi and Andre 3000 posted tweets of their own.
“Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for 20 years of supporting Outkast. -Andre 3000 #Outkast20,” Andre tweeted, followed by, “I’m looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans – stank you smelly much, this is for y’all! -@BigBoi #Outkast20,” from Big Boi.
