Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the tragic passing of TLC member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. In remembrance of their fallen sister, the surviving members of TLC, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas announced plans for a new tour with Left Eye. Coachella attendees are still buzzing about the late rapper Tupac Shakur’s resurrection onstage as a 3D Hologram.
The Tupac hologram was such a hit that it sparked rumors of Hologram comeback tours featuring icons Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley. But the cost of a hologram is dauntingly expensive ($100k to $500k). So will T-Boz and Chilli foot the bill for Left Eye’s hologram?
E! Online reached out to T-Boz and Chilli to find out if their plans to take Left Eye’s hologram on tour was true or false.
But she’s not coming back the way you think.
Although holograms seem to be the preferred route in bringing back deceased artists nowadays, TLC is choosing to do something different.
“The image is not a hologram,” their rep tells E! News. “The girls have done shows before with footage of old performances showing Lisa performing with them on a screen as they perform.”
We didn’t think T-Boz or Left Eye could afford such an expense, but they would if they could. Today’s Throwback Thursday music video is in honor of Left Eye. She will never be forgotten!
True TLC fans know that there was a 4th member of TLC — their lesbun DJ. She is seen at the end of the video wearing a white baseball jersey and a black bandana on her head. She was seen in the group’s early photo shoots, but she was later phased out for obvious reasons. By the way, the warehouse location in the video is now an apartment complex near downtown Atlanta.
