TLC to Play First U.S. Concert in 7 Years
Justin Timberlake will present the two surviving members at an Oct. 17 benefit
TLC, the record-breaking, four-time R&B Grammy winners who were a mainstay on the Billboard charts in the 1990s, are set to play a show on U.S. soil for the first time in seven years – as part of a benefit concert hosted by Justin Timberlake.
Playing the “Justin Timberlake and Friends” concert, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, the two remaining members of TLC – Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes was killed in a 2002 car accident – will play Las Vegas’s Mandalay Bay Events Center on Oct. 17.
The benefit concert highlights a weeklong golf tournament to be hosted by Timberlake in Sin City Oct. 11-18 – the 2009 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
Timberlake, 28, is in the second year of a five-year partnership with Shriners to host the golf tournament and benefit concert.
