Outkast for Glastonbury? Duo confirm over 40 festival dates for 2014
The pair told fans to 'stay tuned' for dates
Big Boi and Andre 3000 have confirmed that Outkast will perform at more than 40 festivals this year in celebration of their album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik’s 20th anniversary.
The pioneering hip hop duo were already slated to appear at Coachella and New York City's Governors Ball, though the locations for the rest of the tour have yet to be announced.
"It's truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose," Big Boi said in a statement on Outkast's newly-launched Facebook page. "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," André 3000 added. "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 vast number of shows the pair intend on playing suggests they will be taking in festivals around the world and has led to much speculation over a potential Glastonbury slot, it being a festival of a fitting size and eclectic line-up for the group.
Outkast told fans to 'stay tuned' for dates and kept quiet over whether or not a new album is in the works.
