TLC's Survivors Set to Say Goodbye
It's over for the two surviving members of the onetime R&B trio TLC -- who will stage their farewell live performance June 1 at New York radio station Z100's annual Zootopia concert, to be held at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., reports Billboard.
Although TLC's survivors, Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozanda "Chilli" Thomas, have made sporadic public appearances since the April 2002 death of group member Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes in a car accident, the two have yet to perform together.
At the time of Lopes's death, the group was working on a new album, called "3D" and eventually released last November.
Besides an expected tribute to Lopes at Giants Stadium, Watkins, 32, and Thomas, 31, are expected to salute fallen R&B stars Aaliyah and Run-DMC's Jam Master Jay.
Others set for the Zootopia bill, says Billboard, are Ashanti, Ja Rule, 'N Sync's JC Chasez, Ginuwine, Daniel Bedingfield, Simple Plan, Bowling for Soup and Wayne Wonder.
In other music news, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst indicates on the group's Web site that his band may scrap some or all of the 19 songs originally intended for its next album, in favor of brand new tracks written with new guitarist Mike Smith.
"We will still have it ready to release before the tour with Metallica," Durst says. "The 19 songs we wrote without Mike are still amazing and sitting on the shelf waiting on me to do whatever the hell I want to do with them."
Limp Bizkit's Summer Sanitarium tour, which also features Linkin Park, kicks off July 4 in Detroit.
