After the immense success of Tupac returning to the stage as a hologram alongside the flesh version of Snoop Dogg at Coachella in April this year, the prospect of bringing back beloved past members of the music industry has sparked the imagination of many.
A hologram tour of Michael Jackson has already been tipped for the future, and now TLC have said that they are hoping to bring the late-Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopez back to life using the hologram technology. Speaking to the Metro, Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas said: "The hologram is something we talked about and thought about years ago, obviously timing is everything but we're definitely talking about it."
In the late '90s and early '00s TLC were one of the most successful RnB acts of the age, but with the premature death of one member of the band, they haven't released an original album in 10 years. As well as the reported hologram come-back of Left-Eye, the remaining members of the band Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins are planning a new album- including new material- plus a tour and a VH1 biopic, according to the BBC. "We've always grown throughout the years and have always had our own sound. That's what works for us and we don't have to worry about anybody else." T-Boz said, "We're going to still sound like TLC, evolving to whatever level we need to be at this time."
