Concert synopsisEdit

The tour comes as the duo plan to release a new album - their first in more than 14 years.

"We always look to her in the shows and pay tribute to Lisa when we do " Waterfalls". The energy she had was something we loved about her so much, everyone did. People end up smiling, laughing, crying - it's a whole range of emotions. I feel her spirit."[1]

Watkins said she was looking forward to performing in New Zealand, and TLC were making the trip largely because of the demand from "amazing" fans. "On Twitter they are always hitting me up, saying 'when are you going to come down?"[1]

Both Tionne, "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda, "Chilli" Thomas performed together as a duo, while using some samples of Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes's performances.[2]
