Big Boi Takes ‘Son of Chico Dusty’ on Tour
Earlier this summer, when Big Boi headlined Chicago's Pitchfork Music Festival, Billboard.com went as far as calling it "a victory lap for the Outkast rapper's just-released solo debut 'Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty." Big Boi is taking another victory lap around the U.S. this fall with a tour hitting colleges and larger venues in major cities.
Kicking off August 26 in Big Boi's Atlanta hometown, the Son Of Chico Dusty tour will make 19 stops, including the Epicenter 2010 festival in Fontana, Calif., where he'll share the bill with Eminem, Kiss and Blink-182. Big Boi then jetsets to Australia for a one-off concert.
With only one album of solo work to his name, the MC is sure to delve into classic Outkast tracks. Already Big Boi's summer setlists have included songs that span the duo's 20-year history, namely 'Rosa Parks,' 'So Fresh, So Clean' 'Skew it on the Bar-B' 'ATLiens,' 'B.O.B,' among others.
