Will TLC Tour with a Holographic "Left Eye"?
Twenty years ago, TLC was just starting to make a name for themselves but it didn’t take long for the world to recognize the talent and potential of the all-female trio. With their cool nicknames – “Left Eye,” “T-Boz” and “Chilli” – and even cooler style, they became instant icons.
Unfortunately, their successes were cut short when Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes was killed in a car accident in Honduras. The remaining members of the group have tried to move on and even hosted their own reality show in an attempt to recapture some of their magic.
Now, they are considering something that several bands in the same position have been working on – having the deceased member of their band rejoin them in a digitized form. "The hologram is something we talked about and thought about years ago. Obviously timing is everything, but we're definitely talking about it," Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas recent said in an interview.
Lopes was just 30-years-old when she died but, like her fellow fallen musician, Tupac Shakur, could be resurrected using technology for stage performances.
Thomas admits that she and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins may have a tough time with it but believes that their fans would “love to see it.” Watkins adds that they will still sound like TLC but will need some fine tuning.
How do you feel about the hologram thing? Should it become a standard practice for bands who lose a member? Is it creepy? Weigh in!
In the meantime, check out TLC’s video for “Waterfalls,” which seems pretty appropriate with this topic.
