Goddamn, we were looking forward to see Big Boi and Killer Mike dominate the stage at Revolution Live next week. But we just read the supremely crappy news on Pitchfork, that their tour is being postponed.
Dear gods of music, why would you do this to us? Is it because we wrote a snarky article dissing Andre 3000? We were mostly kidding. We'd love to see them reunite!
Perhaps, the full story is much simpler and sadder than that. A death and a leg injury.
After two months of touring to promote his album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, Big Boi sustained a knee injury while performing. Killer Mike also tweeted that Andre 3000's mom passed away. RIP. So sad.
