The Outkast headlining set -- which followed many other Outkast headlining sets -- was everything that fans could have wanted.
In the fourth month of their grand festival tour, Outkast is now performing at the level that diehard fans were hoping they'd reach when the reunion was announced back in January. During their Lollapalooza headlining set on Saturday night (Aug. 2), the duo turned Chicago's Grant Park into a wide-reaching dance party with smiles plastered on their faces, as Andre 3000 and Big Boi at long last look like they're at home onstage with each other.
"We had a great fucking time, for real," Andre announced before Outkast performed its final song of the evening, "The Whole World." Three-Stacks appeared as if he was genuinely touched by the audience's enthusiasm on Saturday night; while Calvin Harris was across the park dropping his trove of recent hits, the Mighty O commanded an impressively massive crowd, even after "Ms. Jackson" and "Hey Ya" were blasted midway through the set and led into less well-known gems from Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.
