Following their joyous- comeback show at London’s Koko (which sold out immediately) , iconic girl-group TLC have just announced their first ever UK tour for Autumn 2017 .
The band have also just released their brand new album ‘TLC’ which has been – as the opening lyric of their first single release from the album ‘Way Back’ suggests – a long, long time coming.” This is the sound of a band not only reflecting on their sometimes-turbulent roots but also facing forwards, towards a bright future…though their past is truly ground-breaking. Having sold over 65 million records worldwide, TLC are not only the best-selling American girl group of all time; with 4 Grammy Awards, 4 multi-platinum albums (two of which went Diamond), ten Top 10 singles and four Number 1s, theirs is an influence – across music, fashion and female friendship – which defined and continues to define generations.
After largely stepping back from the public eye since the tragic passing of Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, a Kickstarter campaign was launched to contribute towards recording the new album, and became the most-funded in the company’s history (with the likes of Katy Perry amongst the first to donate). Early live shows as a duo, which saw them play sold out arenas in Japan – where they became the first artist to be awarded MTV’s Legend Award since Michael Jackson – and also in the US and Australia illustrate a renewed confidence; mixing iconic hits like ‘Waterfalls’, ‘No Scrubs’ and ‘Creep’ with new material from ‘TLC’.
With their first ever UK tour now on the horizon, ‘TLC’ suggests a band that are unquestionably back where they’re supposed to be – and unquestionably still Crazy, Sexy, Cool.
