The duo of Andre 3000 and Big Boi confirm their comeback will be extended throughout 2014.
Last week Outkast confirmed that they would be reuniting to perform at Coachella Festival in Los Angeles this April - this week Andre 3000 and Big Boi have revealed that their much-anticipated reunion will actually see them play more than 40 festival dates throughout 2014.
The news has already sparked debate about what festivals the duo could play, with Glastonbury among the early rumours. As outlined in a series of posts on Twitter, the tour will celebrate Outkast's 20th anniversary together and will be a thank you to their fans, according to Andre 3000.
This is how the announcement unfolded:
