    Dre is clarly enjoying the show… “get me the hell out of here” type of enjoying

  • Guest

    Wtf is up with Andre 3000!!??


    crowd wack as fuck, they shoulda done their first show in ATL

  • $$$

    Man 3K wasn’t feeling that shit at all, damn

  • RHHA

    I enjoyed it. They had the most energy at the beginning.

    Dope to see Outkast together on stage again.

    Drop a new album after the tour!


    the crowd was wack cus they only knew a couple songs, they couldn’t get 3k mic right, and how dare they cut the show like that as if there was someone performing after them, all in all though i enjoyed it, now all i gotta do is get some tickets when they come home and my year will be made

  • xastey

    Man 3k is like FUCK THIS SHIT

  • XLRG

    They had the crowd rockin’ in the beginning , when they switched to solo sets the show went flat . They should stick to doing group songs thru out with maybe one or two solo’s ( and leave Future , Janelle Monae at home)..Overall good show , and I don’t know anybody in the game with better hooks…

    • Alldaygb

      Janelle Monae got a good reaction, Future… not so much lol

      • Boris

        Was hilarious when Andre cut future song short.


          yea cus he wasn’t bout to perform his verse, lol future just slipped that in there

  • Thomas

    The crowd was so wack. They should’ve been getting hype

  • Eric

    MAN THAT WAS THE WACKEST CROWD EVER !…You can tell they’re not real Outkast fans just scene kids who was there for the hype of an Outkast reunion. Just so they can go back home and say I was there SMH


      Lol got u feeling some type of way cus these kids were there and you werent. Let me guess… you are one of the “real outkast fans” GTFOH.

  • _AudiiO

    So why o why o why o are we so in denial, when we know we’re not happy here..

  • Sw15h


  • Travis Muzzy

    it’s a shame they won’t reunite.. no chemistry at all anymore

  • Deejhay Daz-One

    First off the good parts, The chemistry was insane for they have not missed a step. Second the songs were good some of these songs carried me through my teenage years. Third this is what hip hop is supposed to sound like.

    Now for the not so good parts, First off Future/Janelle next time STAY HOME. Second attn: sound people get the mics right Andre 3000 needs to have his shit right from the jump. Finally this was not an Outkast crowd THEY WERE WEAK for they didn’t know hardly any of the tracks DAYUM SHAME.

    I’m pleased with the performance but wanted to hear songs like Players Ball, Git Up Get Out, The Way You Move and so many more from SouthernPlayalisticCadillacMuzik and Atliens. Aside from that OutKast did the damn thing.

  • Q: Was the crowd wack?
    A: Yup

    Q: What was wrong with Andre?
    A: He wasn’t feeling the crowd. He wasn’t pleased about his mic. He didn’t want to perform his verse with Future.

    Q: Should Future & Janelle have performed?
    A: Future… Eh, no. Janelle, most definitely! That girl is amazing!

    Q: Was that Killer Mike at the end when they cut the lights on?
    A: Yes, they were about to perform “The World”

    Performance was tight. I didn’t fuck with the crowd. Can’t wait until they come to perform in ATL! I think they’re going to bring ATL back to life the right way. The AUC is ready for y’all!

  • Watson

    Future whack as fuck

    poor andre!

  • James Stanford

    How they get hyped to see a hologram of Tupac but can’t get hyped for the Mighty Outkast
    When they heard “Hey Ya” they was like “I remember this on my Kids Bop CD”

  • padawan_killah

    some where in the middle 3 stack said he was sick.. between that, the mic, some songs he had no interest performing and that wack crowd, i can see why he wasnt in to it.

  • Arrik Mcqueen

    Shitty mic and lame ass crowd. Honestly The bigger fans got stuck mid-way or were backstage watching. The people who got there first, or sat through the previous performance for good spots, weren’t big enough fans to even know the Lyrics to “Elevators”. Shit or “Rosa Parks”, bullshittin up front and stare-off into the distantance high as fuck…
    Janelle was cool. She came from the Idle wild soundtrack so she fit…. Future, wack…. He is “second-generation” Dungeon family so that was a reach to bring him out. He helped fuck the show up. But the Tech guys dropped the ball like 3 different times. Cutting songs short…. I mean WTF. This is mother-fucking OUTKAST here…. Show some god damn respect.
    So i don’t blame 3k for not feeling the show. The show had its good moments and bad. I dont blame Kast but they definitely need a better setting. They are goinna kill back in the south. Damn shame Coach.. Damn shame.

    I was there.. the people around me had no idea what Outkast was playing up until Miss Jackson, The Way You Move and Hey Ya. You had mobs of people leaving their set during Da Art of Storytellin’ for fucks sake. Most people at Coachella were there for all the EDM artists and only caught Outkast to hear Hey Ya, anyways.Andre 3000 and Big Boi deserved better than that weak ass audience for damn sure.

  • GingerNHoney

    I watched the forst weekend of the festival and most black artists had shitty sounds, cluttered stages, etc. The rich white children were not ready for Outkast. When spottieottiedopalicious came on it was silence. Those horns, are u deaf? Who didn’t start smoking to these living legends. I heard second week of coachella was better, crowd wise. I will be a girl and say, Dre looked so damn sexy in his overalls and hoodie, good Lawd. Oh and Dre was not happy about future’s roach looking ass and rushed him off the stage, as he should have.
