TLC fans wondering when Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas are going to release new music now have somewhat of an answer – they at least HAVE new music.
The Atlanta duo will headline the summer “I Love the ‘90s – The Party Continues” tour, which will also feature Naughty by Nature, Color Me Badd, Montell Jordan and Snap!
The tour kicks off July 7 in Washington state and winds its way across the country, hitting Infinite Energy Arena in Duluth four dates from the end of the run at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 9.
Tickets are $19.50-$99.50 and will go on sale at noon March 24 at www.infiniteenergycenter.com, the arena box office and by calling 770-626-2464.
In addition to hits such as “No Scrubs” and “Waterfalls,” TLC plans to debut songs from their forthcoming album. In 2015, T-Boz and Chilli raised $430,000 in a Kickstarter campaign to fund a final new release, but have since been mum about the existence of any new material.
Earlier this month, T-Boz shared photos of her adopted son, Chance, on social media. The singer, who suffers from sickle-cell anemia, will release a book, “A Sick Life,” on Sept. 12.
