TLC Plan ‘Left Eye’ Lopes Hologram For Reunion Tour

Written by Brayden Darke on April 26, 2012

Another dead musician hologram idea is being thrown around. This time it’s the RnB girl group TLC, who are reported to be putting together a reunion tour in the US – resurrecting third member Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, who died in a car accident in Honduras just over ten years ago today.

TMZ reports that the other two members, Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins and Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas, have been planning the ten-year anniversary, and want to incorporate Lopes’ vocals into the live shows, while projecting her image on a big screen, taking inspiration from the recent Tupac Shakur hologram at Coachella.

TLC released their last album, 3D back 2002, just after the death of Lisa Lopes. A documentary about her final days, which included footage of the accident, was made in 2007.

Earlier this week Jackie Jackson of the Jackson 5 spoke to The Sun about a possible world tour that could see his late brother Michael Jackson come back as a hologram: “Wouldn’t that be wonderful? As a matter of fact, we had that idea two years ago for Michael’s Cirque du Soleil show”. However, that could take some time to happen as there is a fair amount of negotiating and politics over the Jackson estate.
