I pretty much predicted stuff like this would be coming after my report of 2Pac's return at Coachella. TMZ reports that TLC members T-Boz and Chilli will be doing a 2012 reunion tour. Apparently the word is that the tour will feature a special appearance from Left Eye as well. Now we know that 2Pac was able to return in hologram form thanks to millions of dollars, millions of dollars I'm pretty sure TLC doesn't have.
So it looks like they will be attempting the next best thing, which will be projecting Left Eye on a big screen. It might come across as low rent, but maybe they can make it work. The bigger question is, can TLC draw crowds to big arenas with only 2 members and some small Left Eye representation. TLC was the hottest group anywhere 10-15 years ago, but has their time now passed? I vaguely remember TLC doing a reality show to find a new member, but apparently that never happened as they seem to have forgotten it ever happened too.
It's a bold move, but maybe there is enough nostalgic memories to make people want to see TLC at least one more time on tour. I have a feeling the appearances from Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes won't be as spectacular as 2Pac was, but still could be pretty cool. The jury is out on this one, TLC is just going to have to hit the road and see how things work out. It's hard to believe that today is actually the 10 year anniversary of the day Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes died.
