Rucuss staffApril 12, 2014

OutKast reunited on stage at Coachella for their first performance in seven years.

Big Boi and André 3000 closed out the first day of the three-day festival in Indio, Calif. with a 90-minute set. It was their first of 40 shows scheduled for this year.

On Friday night, the crowd watched André 3000 and Big Boi rock the stage for 90 minutes, performing a collection of 27 of their hits spanning over five albums. Some of the songs they performed were “B.O.B.” (“Bombs Over Baghdad”), “Ms. Jackson,” “So Fresh, So Clean.” The group also performed some of their lesser-known, deep cuts, including, “Hootie Hoo,” “Elevators” and “Skew It On The Bar-B.”

Sleepy Brown joined them for “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” and “The Way You Move,” and Janelle Monáe hit the stage with Big Boi during “Tightrope.” Andre 3000 also brought out Future for a performance of “Benz Friends (Watchutola),” a new track found on Future’s upcoming Honest album.

Although, Outkast performed a great set, the crowd was low-energy and seemed partially uninterested. It affected André 3000′s energy. He kept asking, “Y’all still here, are y’all alive??”Are you not entertained?” and  “Are y’all tired??”

Andre also said, “I  feel like I’m out here by my goddamn self!” He was so frustrated with the crowd that he performed his biggest hit “Hey Ya!” with his back turned towards the audience.

Many viewers reacted on Twitter. Check out a few below.

There was close to 200,000 fans in attendance with a high probability that most of them didn’t know many songs outside of Outkast’s biggest hits. Watch Outkast’s performance below.
