OutKast Plan 40-Date Tour (Recap)
"It's truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose," Big Boi said via the band's official website (which has seemingly crashed). "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!," added Andre 3000. "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."
The news of the two rappers reconvening after going on hiatus back in 2007 was leaked late last year, and was officially confirmed last week with the release of this year's Coachella line-up. The Coachella announcement was followed by the news that the duo will also be headlining this year's Governors Ball festival in New York. - more on this story
