After confirming headlining shows at Coachella and the Governors Ball, Outkast have announced a worldwide festival tour ‘to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their unique and influential sound’. As announced on their website, the Grammy-winning duo will perform as the ‘marquee act at over 40 festivals around the world throughout the Spring/Summer of 2014′.
During their seven-year hiatus, Antwan ‘Big Boi’ Patton and André ’3000′ Benjamin have both enjoyed individual success, with Big Boi releasing two studio albums, and André 3000 collaborating with many of hip hop’s finest.
“It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose,” says 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!”
André 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.”
Outkast begin their worldwide tour at Coachella Festival in April. Other dates are yet to be announced.
