Outkast tickets - Outkast Tour

Outkast Tour Schedule

The wildly popular and influential hip hop act Outkast churned out hits from the day they first got together in 1992, however they seemed to have completely gone away in 2006 as both Andre 3000 and Big Boi pursued other endeavors. Fortunately in 2014 the superstar duo decided to get back together and play some of the biggest music festivals in the world much to the delight of Outkast fans across the globe. Surely you have heard some of Outkast's hit songs which have become hip hop classics, but chances are you may not have had the chance to see them live as they have spent the past eight years on hiatus. If you are looking to see one of the most exciting and energetic live performances around, start making plans to catch Outkast on their 2014 tour.

Outkast will be playing many of the biggest music festivals in North America in 2014 so no matter where you live you should have a chance to catch them near you. The reunion tour begins on the weekend of April 11th through 13th when Outkast will headline the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, and they will also headline the second weekend of the festival the following weekend. From there Outkast will go on to play at the Counterpoint Music Festival held in Rome, Georgia from April 25th through the 27th before hitting the stage at Big Guava Music Festival in Tampa, Florida from May 2nd through 4th. May 16th through 18th is the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Outkast will also be part of the Sasquatch Music Festival in Gorge, Washington which takes place on May 23rd through the 25th and again on July 4th through 6th. Other festivals follow including Bottle Rock in Napa, California, Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware, Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Forecastle Music Festival in Louisville, Kentucky, Osheaga Music and Arts Festival in Montreal, Quebec, and OVO Music Festival in Toronto, Ontario.


About the Artist

Andre Benjamin and Antwan Patton first met when they were sixteen and attending Tri-Cities High School in the East Point part of Atlanta, Georgia. The two hit it off immediately and would engage in rap battles in their high school cafeteria during lunch. When they started performing together they attracted the attention of the production group Organized Noize who had made songs for TLC. Together with Organized Noize and their schoolmates Goodie Mob, Outkast formed the Dungeon Family organization. In 1994 Outkast released their debut album Southernplayalistcadillacmuzik which was well received and has been credited as one of the earliest Southern rap albums and deemed a classic. For their sophomore release, ATLiens, Outkast was given more money and more creative control which they combined to help reinvent themselves and were once again lauded, this time for showing a maturing sound. At this point Outkast were at the top of their game and stood as one of the most popular and most highly regarded hip hop groups in the genre. In 1998 Outkast released their third studio album, Aquemenia, which hit the number two spot on the Billboard charts, just as ATLiens had done.

The album showed the dup delving deeper into soul, trip hop, and electronic sounds and featured collaborations with George Clinton, Raekwon, Slick Rick, and others. In 2000 Outkast released Stankonia which produced the hit singles Ms. Jackson, B.O.B. (Bombs Over Baghdad), and So Fresh So Clean. Ms. Jackson would win Outkast the Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group and Stankonia won the Grammy for Best Rap Album. 2001 saw the release of a greatest hits album which featured three new songs, one of which, The Whole World, won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 2002. In 2004 Outkast released Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, which was a double album. However, it was basically two solo efforts packaged as an Outkast album. Speakerboxxx was the more hip hop output by Big Boi while The Love Below was Andre 3000's more experimental effort. EAch rapper made brief appearances on the other record, but they were clearly two separate offerings. In 2005 they released their final album, the soundtrack for the movie Idlewild which members of Outkast were working on. Following Idlewild the group went on hiatus, Big Boi stayed involved in hip hop while Andre 3000 dabbled in acting. In late 2013 rumors began swirling that Outkast would be reuniting for the Coachella Festival, and this was confirmed in early 2014. The performance at Coachella evolved into a full-fledged tour which has Outkast performing at festivals all over the world.


Breakthrough

Stankonia proved to be Outkast's biggest album and got them widespread success like they had never seen thanks to the hit single Ms. Jackson which received major airplay on MTV and MTV2. The album was named one of the top albums of the 2000's by Pitchfork and the single B.O.B. (Bombs Over Baghdad) was named the publications song of the decade.


The Experience

You have been waiting for months, if not years, for this night to come and finally as the lights lower you begin to see Outkast making their way out onto the stage. The crowd erupts in applause as the talented performer approaches the mic. A hush falls over the crowd as Andre 3000 and Big Boi thank them and launches into a fan favorite like Hey Ya, Miss Jackson, Player's Ball, or So Fresh So Clean. The crowd once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout the night. Outkast may have taken a few years off but Andre 3000 and Big Boi are veteran performers who definitely know their way around the stage and how to work a crowd, this will be evident from the moment they hit the stage until the second they steps off accompanied by the cheers of thousands of fans. The high energy output from Outkast and their touring group translates perfectly to the crowd and you spend the entire night dancing and singing along.


Trivia

When Speakerboxxx/The Love Below won the Grammy for Album of the Year in 2004, it was the first predominantly hip hop album ever to do so.
