One of my favorite groups of all time TLC may be touring and recording an album soon! After the tragic death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, the group retired and moved on to other things. But now, they are ready to bring back the magic for all of their fans.
According to our partners EURweb:
The surviving bandmates are reportedly thinking seriously about utilizing the technology that resurrected Tupac on stage to bring back Left Eye for upcoming performances surrounding a planned biopic.
“The hologram is something we talked about and thought about years ago, obviously timing is everything but we’re definitely talking about it,” Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas told the Metro newspaper.
Lopes was killed in a car crash in 2002 at age 30. Her death is still painful for Chilli and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins to think about but the idea of having a holographic Left-Eye on stage with them is something they may well embrace, when they release their biopic next year.
“It will be hard on us but I certainly think our fans would love to see it,” said Chilli. “We would definitely be the first group to ever do it… I think we would probably pass out and all of our fans would break down but it’s amazing how real the hologram looks, it’s almost like you can touch the person. It’s great but spooky at the same time but we’re definitely thinking about it.”
According to The Huffington Post:
It has been ten years since TLC released their last studio album, “3D” and the untimely death of group member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. Now it appears surviving members, Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, are eyeing a comeback album for the former trio.
BBC News reports that Watkins revealed the group’s forthcoming plans during this year’s annual Mobo Awards in addition to her thoughts on adapting to today’s music scene.
“We’re going to still sound like TLC, evolving to whatever level we need to be at this time,” she admitted.”We’ve always grown throughout the years and have always had our own sound. That’s what works for us and we don’t have to worry about anybody else.”
“When that stops working, maybe we’ll hang up the towel, but that still works,” she added. “We have to get into the studio and start feeling how we feel. You have to find yourself first and then you find the path and then you have an album before you know it.”
Talking about next year’s biopic, Chilli said “We are so honored to have the opportunity to tell our story and let people see our journey.”
