On Friday Night, Dungeon Family members Big Boi and Cee-Lo will perform on a joint bill at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. Last November, it was rumored that the Outkast and Goodie Mob members would headline a “Georgia Power” tour together. However, as Big Boi recently told Billboard magazine, a Georgia utility company had other ideas about the name of the tour.
“I know one thing—we might have the change the name of it, because the actual Georgia Power company sent a cease-and-desist letter, so we can’t use the name,” Big Boi revealed. As for the delay, he added that, “I think they’re just trying to work out the kinks behind the scenes.”
Despite the legal action, fans in the greater Los Angeles area can still catch Big Boi and Cee-Lo for the $39 price of admission. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and additional information is available at the Club Nokia website.
As a testament to their longevity, Big Boi’s Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty album enjoyed a 13-week stint on Billboard’s top albums chart after peaking as the number three album in the country. The single “Shutterbugg” is up for a Grammy nomination in the Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group category. Meanwhile, Nielsen’s Broadcast Data Systems reports Cee-Lo’s “Fuck You” averaged 33 plays per station and an audience of 33.1 million listeners last week. The song is also nominated for a Grammy award in the categories of Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
