Outkast Is Playing 40 Concert Dates This Year, Andre 3000 & Big Boi Speak
Outkast fans are rejoicing. After over eight years of limited news surrounding the bond that is Andre 3000 and Big Boi, it’s a true rainfall of excitement. Late 2013 revealed a pic of the pair in an undisclosed parking lot. Days later it was confirmed that the Two Dope Boyz are bringing their Cadillac to Coachella in ’14. Subsequently, New Yorkers learned that Daddy Fat Sax and Three Stacks would be rockin’ a metropolitan stage to boot.
Now, reps for OutKast confirm that 40 dates will be announced in 2-0-1-4. Keep in mind, this year marks 20 calendars since the duo’s incredible debut, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. Reunited with LaFace Records co-founder Antonio “L.A.” Reid at Epic Records now, it appears that fates are coming full circle for one of Hip-Hop’s most beloved groups.
“It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose,” said Big Boi in a press 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,” said André 3000.
