Will Big Boi and Andre 3000 put Outkast back together in 2014 to headline
"Multiple sources" have told Billboard that the duo, who went their separate ways in 2007, are indeed in
talks with Coachella organizers to start a reunion run in Indio, CA that "would be
by additional dates." Today's report comes months after the hip-hop duo stoked the reunion
flames back in January.
Apparently Billboard's "multiple sources" don't agree about the status of the pair's talks
with Coachella organizers, "One source tells Billboard that there have definitely been
conversations' about Outkast reuniting, while another says it is 'all systems go' for Big
Boi and Andre 3000 to end their hiatus next year." In Outkast's absence, a few jambands
taken to covering the band's songs, namely Trey Anastasio with his "Hey Ya!" cover and
with their take on “SpottieOttieDopaliscious.” Perhaps a reunion will tempt Umphrey's to
bust out their long-shelved cover of "Roses," which has gone unplayed since the very first
Coachella organizers Golden Voice, as well as the band's label, didn't respond to
Billboard's request for comment by the time the story broke.
