To think, we went years without any murmurs from Outkast as a duo. Now, in a matter of days, we’ve gotten two major festival appearances and now *drumroll* 40 additional dates being confirmed for 2014. Per official Facebook:
“Outkast will return to the stage with a full festival run of over 40 dates to celebrate 20 years since Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik!
“Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for their 20 years of supporting Outkast.” – Andre 3000
“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!” – Big Boi
Stay tuned for dates! #Outkast20 – Team Outkast”
Although specifics haven’t been given, their press release states that what begins with the Coachella show on April 11 will be followed with “dates throughout the spring and summer.” Yes, the rap gods are smiling down us with nothing but promises of joy if these shows do manifest.
