Horseshoe Hammond welcomes R&B and hip hop group TLC for their only concert in the Chicago area on March 29.
Formed in Atlanta in 1991, TLC captured the world’s attention with their sassy attitude, sophisticated R&B feel and socially conscious lyrics. Comprised of Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, rapper Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, the trio is largely considered one of the most important and successful female R&B groups of all time, selling over 22 million albums in the United States alone.
On their 1992 debut, Ooooooohhh...On the TLC Tip, the group unleashed a cool blend of hip hop and R&B reminiscent of the “new jack swing” of the late ‘80s, rounding out their hook-laden sound with flamboyant wardrobes and vibrant, attention-grabbing energy. In 1994, TLC displayed a remarkable newfound maturity with CrazySexyCool, offering a smoother and mid-tempo gem of an album that went on to sell over 11 million copies in the U.S., won a Grammy for Best R&B Album and included chart-topping hits “Creep” and “Waterfalls.” TLC’s third album, FanMail (1999), included crossover sensations “No Scrubs” and “Unpretty” and, like its predecessor, won the Best R&B Album Grammy.
In 2002, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was killed in a tragic car accident while spending time in Honduras. Refusing to call it quits in honor of their fallen sister, T-Boz and Chilli completed and released 3D that same year, also performing with an on-stage video montage dedicated to Lopes at Z100’s Zootopia festival.
The group has found a new group of fans and a fresh round of popularity after the record-breaking debut of their VH1 film, Crazy Sexy Cool, chronicling their rise to fame and their struggles along the way. They are currently in the studio preparing their first new album in over a decade.
