It started with the hologram resurrection of the late rapper Tupac Shakur. Then we heard that the Jackson brothers are planning to resurrect the late Michael Jackson in hologram form for an upcoming tour. Now we learn that the 90s rap group TLC are planning to resurrect the late Lisa Left Eye Lopes for a reunion tour to mark the 10th anniversary of her death. The surviving members of TLC — Tione T-Boz Watkins and Rozonda Chilli Thomas — have announced plans for a reunion concert tour this year that will feature a video projection of Left Eye on stage with them. And so … it begins. Here come the holograms.
For the first time in nearly a decade, TLC will be reuniting for a U.S. concert tour later this year — and TMZ has learned, the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes will be making a special appearance. The group’s rep tells us, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas are currently in the planning stages of a massive 2012 reunion tour in the U.S. So far, we’re told 5 major cities have already been booked — and even more are in the works. But the big surprise … we’re told the group plans to pull a Tupac — incorporating their deceased former member Left Eye in the shows, projecting her image on a big screen and working her vocals into the live performances.
News of this reunion tour came out late yesterday, 10 years to the day that Lisa Left Eye Lopes died in a fatal car accident in Honduras … so clearly, TLC is making a statement with this announcement. The fact that they have 5 major cities booked for this tour already means that this tour will likely become a reality. I’m not quite sure that I believe that Left Eye will appear on stage as a hologram/projection, it’s more likely that she will appear on video screens but still … Left Eye will be along for the tour … which is exciting, I guess. I used to ooooh, be on the TLC tip back in the day so this is a tour that I’d like to see. What do y’all think? Any TLC fans in the hiz? What do you think of this reunion tour plan?
