After a brief run of shows supporting his solo album, New Blue Sun, André 3000 has now announced an expansive U.S. tour, stopping here in Philly at The Met on November 1. He will be joined by Carlos Niño, Nate Mercereau, Surya Botofasina, and Deantoni Parksm, all musicians he worked with on the album.

André 3000’s album New Blue Sun, released last November, was a surprise in more ways than one. Not only was it the OutKast member’s first release in 17 years, but it featured no rapping – no vocals even – instead showcasing André as a skilled flautist. With long tracks and even longer titles, the album presents a genuine André 3000 as he is today. Finding nothing to say through verse, beats, and raps, the album organically materialized from experimentation with wind instruments. Co-produced with Carlos Niño, it also features musicians Nate Mercereau, Surya Botofasina, Deantoni Parks, Diego Gaeta, Matthewdavid, V.C.R, Diego Gaeta, Jesse Peterson, and Mia Doi Todd.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday, June 28, at 10am; details at the WXPN Concert Calendar. In the mean time, watch André perform “That Night In Hawaii When I Turned Into A Panther And Started Making These Low Register Purring Tones That I Couldn’t Control … Sh*t Was Wild” live below.
