When the rumor that OutKast would reunite for Coachella sprung up last year, the sourceless reports also hinted that there might also be a multiple festival run in the works for the Atlanta duo. Last week, their gig as headliners of Palm Springs festival was confirmed and, additionally, it was announced they would also take top billing at NYC's relatively new festival Governors Ball.
But OutKast may be coming to your city, too. The group announced, via Twitter, that they would be performing at over 40 festivals in honor of the 20-year anniversary of their debut album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik (released April 26, 1994).
More details on the tour below.
“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.
Outkast will return to the stage with a full festival run of over 40 dates to celebrate 20 years. #Outkast20 - Team Outkast— Outkast (@Outkast) January 13, 2014
