NEW YORK -- OutKast's 20th anniversary comeback is being extended to more than 40 festival dates in 2014.

The Grammy Award-winning rap duo announced across its newly launched social media platforms Monday morning that it will play the dates, but not where. Andre "Andre 3000" Benjamin and Antwan "Big Boi" Patton announced last week they were coming off hiatus and performing together for the first time in 10 years at the Coachella Valley Arts & Music Festival in April.

Benjamin and Patton never formally broke up but stopped working together after the release of the 2006 soundtrack "Idlewild" at the height of their popularity. Patton has released a couple of solo albums in the interim, and Benjamin has been acting and making occasional musical guest appearances.
