April 25th, commemorated the 10yr. anniversary of the sudden death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and I still have a hard time expressing what she meant to the world, and more specifically as a sister to Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas.
Well now that we have all seen the “resurrection” of Tupac, using the hologram at Coachella, TLC will do the same thing for Lisa. The top selling female group is planning a reunion tour for this year, with 5 cities already being booked.
“Left Eye was killed 10 years ago today in a fatal car accident in Honduras. “The word anniversary means a celebration. For us her death will never be a celebration, it’s still something that hurts,” said T-Boz, while Chilli added, “Lisa is our sister. You never get over losing a family member. We love her and we miss her and that isn’t ever going to change.”
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of TLC, the surviving members are working with VH1 on a made-for-TV movie series inspired by their story as well as a new album.
“We’ll have new music right after the movie drops,” Chilli told Essence. “We have everybody that was there with us from the beginning on board.” (via RAP-UP)
As a long-time TLC fan, (I have everything they have ever sold..lol), I pray that this tour comes near me. I’m definitely trying to be in the house. Just knowing that Tionne & Chilli will once again take the stage with Lisa, is worth every dime of it’s price.
