Following the December 2012 release of his second solo album – Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors - Big Boi is now gearing up for a monster 43-show stretch. The North American leg of the Shoes for Running 2013 World Tour is scheduled to kickoff on 4/18 at the Georgia Theatre in General Patton’snative Athens, Georgia, and will come to an end after the June 19th show at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, MA.
The Outkast rapper has let it be known that his 90-minute sets will be packed with hits both new and old. Not only can fans expect the legendary Atlanta MC to perform some of his new experimental material off of Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, but they should also expect to hear some hits from his first album, as well as some classic Outkast tracks. Fans should also look for Killer Mike - who is also serving as the opening act – to join Big Boi onstage for a few throwbacks (ex.”A.D.I.D.A.S.”).
In the event there are any additional tour dates added to the Shoes for Running 2013 World Tour, we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
