Just a few days after they announced they’ll be headlining Coachella Festival with Arcade Fire (their first concert in years), Outkast announced they are embarking on a tour which will take them to 40 festivals.
“It’s truly an honour to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose,” Big Boi said in a 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!”
Exact dates and festivals are yet to be announced, but it will be a world tour, so European fans have reasons for joy as well.
“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.”, Andre 3000 added.
Outkast have been on a hiatus since 2007, and their last live performance together was in 2004, each enjoying solo success in their careers.
In the other news, the band is reportedly making new music, according to Consequence of Sound.
