The two surviving members of TLC will perform together at an Oct. 17 “Justin Timberlake and Friends” concert in Las Vegas, People.com reports. This marks the first time Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas have played a U.S. show since 2002, the year when bandmate Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes died in a car crash.
Considering just how hugely TLC’s music loomed over the R&B scene in the ’90s, this is a pretty big deal. I know I still miss TLC a little bit every time “Waterfalls” or “No Scrubs” comes on the radio. So what do you make of this news? Are you scrambling to get tickets to Vegas already? If the October show goes well, do you think that T-Boz and Chilli should keep the reunion going — either as a duo, or with a new third vocalist? Weigh in below.
