TLC Reunites Kicks Off Reunion Tour At Mixtape Festival 2013

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

The surviving members of r&b supergroup TLC are scheduled to reunite for a performance at the Mixtape Festival 2013 in Hershey, PA. T-Boz and Chilli have been busy serving as co-executive producers of the forthcoming VH1 TLC biopic Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story. Adding to their schedule they will hit the stage at Hershey Park Stadium for two-day festival on Friday July 26th and Saturday July 27th. The concert presented by Live Nation will also feature Rev Run & DJ Ruckus, Boyz II Men, New Kids On The Block, Jonas Brothers and Hanson among others.

That date is apparently only part of a full-on TLC reunion tour which according to TMZ  "has already slated nights in five major cities." If you're thinking that "TLC Reunion Tour" is sort of meaningless without the dearly departed Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes--who passed away 10 years ago almost to the day---here with us to complete the cipher...than the next thought that is forming in your brain is exactly correct. According to Hollywood reporter:

T-Boz and Chilli have announced that in celebration of their anniversary, Left-Eye will be gracing the reunion tour stage through image projections on a big screen -- however, the duo intends to use archival footage, not a newly generated digital performance.

Chilli and T-Boz are apparently not playing around with this comeback thing, since in addition to the TLC biopic that's been in the works for a minute, the group will "have new music right after the movie drops" as Chilli recently told Essence. Tickets for the Mixtape Festival will be available on May 10th at 10 A.M (two-day festival passes start at $50--check the link below to purchase tickets) and we will keep Okayplayers informed as new dates and holograms are added.
