CHICAGO, Illinois — As the sun set on Grant Park, thousands of concert goers filed in to see OutKast perform last night (August 2) at Lollapalooza. This set just about marked the halfway point for the guys, who signed on to do more than 40 shows this festival season. And while one might think they’d be losing steam, the pair confirmed they’re in this for the long haul.
Since first reuniting back in April for Coachella, MTV News has been keeping track of the group, who’ve been bringing it night after night to cities across the globe. But it’s not just their performances that have caught our eyes. Oh no. Not only have the guys proved that they’ve still got it on the mic — which we never doubted — but they’ve also established they’ve got their stage style on lock as well. From Big Boi’s vibrant prints to Andre 3000’s “Sold Out” tags, the duo are definitely making a fashion statement. But another message being made each night can be found in the form of text on Andre’s (who was was referring to the crowd as “Lollapawinners”) coveralls which, thus far, have changed every show.
Intrigued by the musician’s words of wisdom, (plus, just their incredible clothing choices as a whole) we combed through the archives to provide you with a pic from almost every catwalk, we mean, stage they’ve hit so far this summer. Take a look:
