*cues up the TLC Intro-Lude* “I see my girl Chilli in her Lexus Coupe Sittin’ pretty, oh, in that hot pink suit And Bam! In through the door she struts It’s the lovely T-Boz with the ill haircut.”
They’re back, and in a big way! The best-selling American female group of all time – TLC announce their 2021 ‘Celebration of CrazySexyCool‘ National Tour beginning September 3rd in Alabama. The 18-city tour will see Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas performing selections from their 1994 Diamond-certified album, 27 years after its release plus additional hits. The ’90s themed shows will feature fan interaction, 90s fashion, surprise guests and more. The ladies are even asking for us to help create the setlist by dropping songs that WE want to hear, so make sure that you hit them up on social media! Joining TLC is Bone Thugs N’ Harmony plus special guests. Pre-sale begins on Thursday, June 24th with Public ticket sales available on Friday, June 25th*. Additional dates to be announced. Visit livenation.com or check local listings for more information.
With over 85 million records sold worldwide, TLC is not only the best-selling American girl group of all time; with 4 Grammy Awards, 4 multi-platinum albums (two of which went Diamond), four number one singles and ten Top 10 singles, theirs is an influence – across pop, hip-hop, R&B, fashion and female empowerment – which defines generations. In 2017, TLC released a self-titled album, their first in over fifteen years which hit #1 on Billboard’s Independent Album Chart.
I clearly remember when this CD dropped, all the fanfare that surrounded it during the time, and NOT being able to see them on the 1995 Budweiser Superfest show, so to see this tour come about YEARS later, is just surreal.
