OutKast to perform at over 40 festivals this year
In the midst of all of the excitement surrounding their upcoming reunion tour, legendary hip-hop duo Outkast have released their first statement in regards to the most anticipated tour of 2014. With this year marking the 20th anniversary of their debut album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, the tour is set to include various festival dates around the world.
In addition, following their reunion performances at this year’s Coachella Festival, the two will serve as the marquee act at over 40 festivals during both the spring and summer seasons of this year.
The dates have yet to be announced.
Here’s what Big Boi had to say about the reunion: “It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose. 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!“
Adding to the statement, André 3000 said, “And imagine, all we wanted to do was rap! I am thankful to have been 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.”
