Now that the Outkast reunion tour has been announced, the duo has today, for the first time, released an official statement regarding their comeback. Big Boi and Andre 3000 will kick off their reunion tour at Coachella in April in California which will be followed by more than 40 festivals around the world through Spring and Summer of 2014. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of their debut album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.
Says Big Boi:
“It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose. 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!”
Says Andre 3000:
“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.”
