TLC announce festival show

By | Published on Tuesday 30 April 2013


TLC – aka Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins and Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas – have confirmed they will play together again later this year, with their first confirmed reunion show being at the pop-themed American music festival Mixtape in late July. The event is sponsored by VH1, which is also currently making a biopic about the R&B group, in which the trio’s two surviving members are involved.

When the Tupac hologram appeared alongside Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg at Coachella last year there was speculation that TLC might use the same technology to include footage of their late former bandmate Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes in any future live shows. Although that’s not currently formally part of the plan, T-Boz didn’t rule it out when asked about such a thing in a recent Huffington Post interview.

She said: “We’re trying to work out to see if we can really deal with that. You have to stand next to that person and you know she’s not there, and that’s really emotional… It’s easy for people on the outside to say ‘that would be dope’ … but emotionally I don’t know”.
