Outkast Announce Tour of Over 40 Festivals
Outkast took to their official website to announce that they'll be celebrating their 20th anniversary as a musical act by performing at more than 40 festivals around the globe during the spring/summer of 2014.
"It's truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose," Big Boi said, via 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!"
"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," André 3000 added.
The duo will kick off their tour of festivals, as a "marquee act," after they headline Coachella in April. Outkast will first reunite at the fest, being held over two weekends April 11-13 and April 18-20 in Indio, CA. They'll headline on the two Fridays.
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.
Outkast's classic debut album, "Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik," turns 20 on April 26.
Outkast will return to the stage with a full festival run of over 40 dates to celebrate 20 years. #Outkast20 - Team Outkast— Outkast (@Outkast) January 13, 2014
