quirky black kids rejoice: tlc’s new album will be out this summer

March 21, 2017

They’re back! TLC just announced their first ever UK live show at London’s Koko on 9th May 2017. And for fans who have been waiting for the group’s return but can’t make it to London, all is not lost! In the summer of 2017, TLC will bring Crazy, Sexy, Cool back again with a new album and single to be announced for the summer.

TLC is not only the best-selling American girl group of all time–selling over 65 million records worldwide, with 4 Grammy Awards, 4 multi-platinum albums (two of which went Diamond), ten Top 10 singles and four Number 1s–their influence has also shaped an entire generation across pop, hip-hop, R&B, fashion.

After the passing of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes in 2002, the group took a long break from the spotlight, but Chilli and T-Boz are now ready to return, and not a moment too soon for their fans. When they launched a Kickstarter campaign to record the new album, it quickly became the most-funded in the company’s history, with superstars like Katy Perry being named among the first to donate. The world just can’t wait!

Tickets go on sale Friday 24 March, available from:
