TLC To Resurrect Left Eye For 20th Anniversary Tour? 

Following Tupac's Coachella hologram, Lopes' image may also be recreated...

TLC have announced they will be touring the US to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut record.

Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins, Rozanda 'Chilli' Thomas and Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes enjoyed huge success with tracks such as Waterfalls, Creep and No Scrubs, but were rocked by the death of Left Eye in 2002, after she was killed in a car accident.

Now, Watkins has explained in an interview with Essence that herself and Chilli hope to hit the road to mark the 20-year milestone - with TMZ reporting they've already scheduled shows in five cities.

T-Boz stated: "We're going on tour; we are in negotiations now with LA Reid, so we'll see what happens. A lot of cool things are coming up."

Reports have also claimed that the group are considering using the same technology that was used to resurrect late rapper Tupac as a hologram at this year's Coachella festival to recreate Left Eye's image for the tour.

Following Lisa's death, TLC last performed together as a duo in June 2003, where they used video clips of Lopes to accompany them throughout their set.

The group also recently revealed that they are making a television biopic about TLC, with Thomas hinting they may even record some new material.

She claimed: "Another TLC album? Yes, that's for sure! We'll have new music right after the movie drops. We have everybody that was there with us from the beginning on board."
