Published Jan 13, 2014Outkast have already confirmed that they will be reuniting this year for shows at Coachella and the Governors Ball, but it turns out that this is just the tip of the iceberg, since the legendary rap duo have confirmed plans to play a heap of festivals this summer.
An announcement on Outkast's website reveals that Antwan "Big Boi" Patton and André "3000" Benjamin will be celebrating their 20th anniversary as a group by touring as "the marquee act at over 40 festivals around the world throughout the Spring/Summer of 2014."
They have yet to confirm their schedule, but since they promise more than 40 shows across the globe, we're optimistic that a couple of these may be in Canada. The outings will begin in April at Coachella.
"It's truly an honour to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose," said Big Boi in a statement. "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!"
André 3000 added, "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."
Stay tuned for updates regarding the pair's itinerary.
