Outkast has not only reunited, the group will be going on a 40 city tour, beginning this spring.
Just days following the announcement, the group, consisting of rappers Big-Boi and Andre 3000, would be joining the line-up for the 2014 Coachella Festival, the group has now announced their upcoming tour.
The announcement came earlier today, via the group’s official Twitter page. The tweet read, “Outkast will return to the stage with a full festival run of over 40 dates to celebrate 20 years. #Outkast20 – Team Outkast”
Of the announcement, the duo each made their own statements expressing their thoughts on reuniting and their upcoming tour dates. Here’s what they had to say.
“Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for 20 years of supporting Outkast. -Andre 3000 #Outkast20.”
