TLC to Tour This Year

Several sources, such as TMZ and Essence.com, report that girl group TLC will tour with surviving members T-Boz aka Tionne Watkins and Chilli aka Rozonda Thomas. Third member Left Eye, aka Lisa Lopes, died in a car accident in 2002 at the tender age of 30, putting the group on hiatus ever since.
It's the 10th anniversary of Left Eye's death, so a tour would mark the occasion.
T-Boz and Chilli plan to incorporate Lopes' vocals into the live shows and will be projecting her image on a big screen. Sorta like Tupac Shakur was a hologram at Coachella. Five shows are booked so far, with more to come.
T-Boz said, "We're going on tour; we are in negotiations now with L.A. Reid, so we'll see what happens. A lot of cool things are coming up." A biopic on the band's rise to fame is in the works, as is new material, which they've been working on.
Chilli said, "Another TLC album? Yes, that's for sure! We'll have new music right after the movie drops. We have everybody that was there with us from the beginning on board. We'll definitely have a tour; I just don't know what we'll call it yet."
After the Spice Girls, TLC are the best-selling girl group of all time.
Would you go see TLC sans Left Eye? Fave TLC song?
