RANDALL’S ISLAND, New York — Outkast headlined Governors Ball on Friday night, and the New York City crowd certainly showed the legendary group some Northern Hospitality. And rightfully so. Backed by a live band and continuously looking like they were having a blast onstage, Andre 3000 and Big Boi ran through a bevy of monster hits and beloved album cuts, from “Hey Ya” and “Ms. Jackson” to “Spottieottiedopaliscious” and “Aquemini.”
Before their run of festivals this summer, the Atlanta duo hadn’t played together in a decade. So, naturally, there are plenty of fans out there who have never gotten a chance to see them perform. Until now. And more than a few people felt like Friday night’s energetic set gave them the rare opportunity to cross something off of their Bucket List.
Today was perfect! Let's scratch Outkast off the bucket list

And if it wasn’t on your bucket list, it was merely the best show of your life.
that probably was the best rap show i've ever been to. not just a caught-in-the-moment thing.

Alright, Outkast was one of the best shows I've ever seen and all attendees were beautiful and firm-bodied, so tonight's a net positive.

Don’t worry, though. There are tons of other opportunities to see them this summer, including at Firefly Music Festival in Delaware on June 21, Forecastle Festival in Louisville, Kentucky on July 19 and a handful more. So even if you weren’t on Randall’s Island Friday, you still have a chance to catch something like this:
