OutKast Announces Tour of Over 40 Festivals for the duos 20th Anniversary
From Hey Ya to The Way You Move, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik to the Grammy winning Speakerboxx/The Love Below; Outkast have packed stadiums, taken over radios, and gained an enormous worldwide following in their 20 years as arguably Hip-Hop’s favorite duo.
Having not toured or produced a studio album since 2006’s Idlewild, which doubled as the soundtrack from the feature film under the same name, the world has been anxiously waiting to hear from Big Boi and Andre 3000.
“It’s the 20 year anniversary of OutKast and we’re here to give it to ’em,” Big Boi told Revolt TV.
Coachella, the annual music festival in Indio California, announced to its lucky ticket holders that it would be the first stop on Outkast’s Festival tour, with nearly 40 more festival stops to follow.
While the focus has been on the festival tour, fans everywhere are eagerly awaiting a new OutKast album, but Big Boi quickly broke the news to fans everywhere when he was quoted saying “We’re just doing the tour only…Just for the fans. That’s all it is, a tour.”
And to all those who do get a ticket to witness live music history, Andre 3000 has some words just for you…”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!
The opportunity to catch OutKast live is surely not to be missed. If you weren’t able to snatch up a Coachella ticket, check out the list of the announced festivals they are headlining this season.
