The duo will kick off their tour of festivals, as a “marquee act,” after they reunite as the headliner at Coachella in April.
As you know Outkast’s classic debut album, “Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik,” turns 20 years old on April 26, 2014 and the iconic duo has officially released statements surrounding the historic event and their planned ‘reunion’ tour.
In a statements released via their newly launched twitter account, both Big Boi and Andre 3000 states how excited they are about celebrating such a benchmark event.
Big Boi states:
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!
Andre 3000 adds:
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.
Shortly after announcing their first peformance in a decade, they shared that they’ll be headlining this year’s Governors Ball in New York City and eventually they’ll return to their hometown of Atlanta for yet another historic performance.
