OutKast to Perform at More Than 40 Festivals in 2014
Fans freaking out that they can’t make it to Coachella for the OutKast reunion can breathe a bit easier: They’ll have plenty of other chances to catch the pair in action this year!
More than three dozen opportunities, as a matter of fact: OutKast “will be the marquee act at over 40 festivals around the world throughout the Spring/Summer of 2014,” according to group’s official site. Dates are yet to be announced, although it is known that they will be performing in June at New York City’s Governors Ball.
The long-awaited OutKast reunion first anchors the 2014 Coachella festival, being held April 11-13 and April 18-20.
“It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose,” said 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!”
Andre 3000 also released a statement: “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.”
