'Left Eye' Lopes Rumoured To Appear Digitally On Tlc Tour As Group Mourn 10th Anniversary Of Passing
The rumour mill's been in top gear over who'll be first, and it looks like it'll be LISA 'LEFT EYE' LOPES of Tlc who'll be the next deceased musician to be brought back to life in hologram form. TMZ reported that the surviving members of the popular girl group had booked in shows for a comeback tour, using the same technology that was employed to such great effect when bringing Tupac Shakur "back from the dead" for his performance with Dr. DrE and Snoop Dogg at Coachella Festival in California over the past two weekends in the US.
A rep told the entertainment website that TIONNE 'T-BOZ' WATKINS and ROZONDA 'CHILLI' THOMAS are currently in the middle of planning a US reunion tour, with five major cities having been booked and many more on the way. The girls will also look to incorporate Left Eye's vocals into their performance whilst projecting her image onto a big screen which certainly won't be the same, but will be similar to Tupac's performance recently.
The news comes on the 10th anniversary of the star's death after a car accident in Honduras. At that point the group were possibly at their highest point yet, with fourth album '3D' on the way after 1999's 'FanMail' had gone in at top spot on the US Billboard Charts. Left Eye's death changed everything though, and whilst '3D' was eventually released, there've been no studio recordings and only sporadic live performances since.
