(AllHipHop News) Outkast is not simply returning for performances at Coachella and Governor’s Ball Music Festival in New York City. In a press release from the group released today, Outkast will embark on an addition 40 festival dates as apart of tour commemorating their 20 year legacy.
In the press release, both reflected on their legacy and rise to fame:
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!- Big Boi
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- André 3000.
While no dates have been confirmed as of yet, the group initially made the announcement on their newly created Twitter account:
Outkast will return to the stage with a full festival run of over 40 dates to celebrate 20 years. #Outkast20 – Team Outkast
