OutKast tour shock

Only one of them to go on the road

Outkast have announced they are planning to tour, but with only one member.

Big Boi, one half of the Atlanta duo, has said that Andre 3000 will not play live.

He revealed: “I will be going out down the road. My brother (Andre), he’s not doing this side of the fence, just chilling. But who knows what the future holds. We’re gonna see what happens, ‘cause we got the ball and it’s first down.”

The last release by the band, 2003’s ‘Speakerboxx’/’The Love Below’, was composed of two solo albums by Big Boi and Andre 3000 respectively.

However, the band – as a duo – are set still to release ’Idlewild’, the film and album, in August.

Discussing the subject of the film, Andre 3000 said: “It’s about this entertainer who at the top of his career just totally, completely stops doing it. He moves back to his hometown and teaches these five or six musically talented kids. Every show, we have a new song produced and performed by me and the kids, so stay tuned.”

“The movie takes place in the 1930s, but it’s hip,” he told MTV. “It’s a new musical…whatever you have liked about OutKast in the past, when you go to the movie theatre…you’ll be pleased. Believe me.”
