While you were sleeping, a dream came true for many ATLiens last night as Antwan ‘Big Boi’ Patton
and Andre ‘3000’ Benjamin
(aka Outkast) reunited onstage during Coachella 2014.
It was OutKast’s first concert in seven years and needless to say, the performance was highly anticipated worldwide. Longtime fans weren’t expecting any surprise guests but there were several ready, willing an waiting to hit the stage.
Dre and Big brought out a few quests: Sleepy Brown and rapper Future and Janelle Monae.
Apparently due to a schedule change, the time was changed and the set started late. The legendary group had to cut at least 4 songs from their set list and to make matters worse, there was a 1am PCT cut off time that caused Killer Mike’s performance to abruptly cut.
(Yeah… we’re all still a bit pissed off about that.)
But despite all of their challenges the group still managed to pull off a historic one hour, and 32 minute performance.
