*Big Boi returns to the road this April for his first U.S. tour in two years, Rolling Stone reported.

The outing, named “Shoes for Running” after a track on the Atlanta MC’s Dec. 2012 album, “Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors,” will hit 45 cities across the country, opening April 18 in his home state of Georgia and wrapping up in Boston on June 19.

Dungeon Family member and fellow Atlanta MC Killer Mike will be opening for Big Boi, as well as appearing on stage with him during his set. The OutKast veteran also hinted at the appearance of other guest performers that joined him on “Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors,” such as Wavves’ Nathan Williams, T.I., and Kid Cudi, “depending on who’s in the vicinity.”
