One half of Grammy Award winning Diamond selling hip-hop duo Outkast, Big Boi, sets dates for the Son Of Chico Dusty U.S nationwide tour in support of his critically acclaimed debut album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty. Starting August 26th Atlanta,  Big Boi(Antwan Patton)  will be performing hits from his debut solo album along with Outkast classics in select cities across the US (see dates below).

Recently headlining Pitchfork Festival act, Big Boi also performed with HP & Myspace Music stopping in Miami (Aug.18th )for the most viewed hip-hop show in Ustream history. Drawing in 1.5 million total streams during the live show and the rebroadcast running immediately following, the show ranks as the #3 most viewed music performance ever on Ustream, only behind Kiss (2 million in Nov. 2009) and Bon Jovi (1.5 million in March 2010).  In total, the live stream and immediate rebroadcast garnered 2.6 million tune-ins in 30 hours


Recently, Big headlined the Pitchfork Music Festival and will be making more festival appearances during the tour at Epicenter, MoogFest, and TCT9. His energetic live shows have been winning over crowds while his first official album separate from the diamond-selling duo Outkast has been earning excellent reviews from The New Yorker, Time, Pitchfork, RollingStone, and New York Magazine among others.  Spin Magazine declares, “Funk is the game and Antwan ‘Big Boi’ Patton isn’t playing… Sir Lucious Left Foot is a monster of an album.”  Also, Big collaborated with Converse to create a limited edition pair of sneakers paying tribute to his debut album.
