Finally! OutKast hit the stage for the first time in nearly a decade. The dynamic Atlanta duo reunited at Coachella Music Festival on Friday (April 11). Andre 3000 and Big Boi took fans on a nostalgic journey of their group and solo hit songs.
Despite a few hiccups, ‘Kast gave the audience a high-energy show, according to Billboard.
Backed by a live band and a huge cube that was flashing graphics, Three Stacks and Sir Luscious performed a variety of songs from their vast catalog (peep their setlist below). The duo kicked off their 90-minute set with ‘B.O.B.’ and then segued into ‘ATLiens’ and a run of ‘Aquemini’ tracks including ‘Skew It on the Bar-B’ and the title song. They also performed such classics as ‘Rosa Parks, ‘Bowtie’ and ‘SpottieOttieDopaliscious’ (both with Sleepy Brown).
OutKast’s show also came with some surprises by way of special guests. ‘Electric Lady’ Janelle Monae joined Big Boi during his solo set and performed ‘Tightrope.’ During Andre 3000’s solo set, which consist of songs from his ‘Love Below’ LP, rapper Future hit the stage to perform three songs including ‘Benz Friendz (Whatchutola),’ his duet with Three Stacks from his upcoming album, ‘Honest.’
OutKast wrapped their show up with a medley of hits like ‘Players Ball,’ ‘Elevators,’ ‘Ms. Jackson,’ ‘The Way You Move’ and ‘Hey Ya!’
Despite some inconsistencies during the show, OutKast satisfied. As the Atliens continue with their reunion tour this summer, they will most likely fine tune their set.
In the end, it’s great to see OutKast back on stage again. Stank ya very much!
