The iconic girl-group is returning to London for a one-off show in 2020 and have addressed rumours of a possible Glastonbury Festival performance
TLC have expressed their desire to make their Glastonbury debut at the Festival’s 50 anniversary next summer.
The iconic girl-group – comprised of Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins and Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas after the untimely death of Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes in 2002 – revealed that they will play a one-off show in London, at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on June 29, 2020.
The American duo announced the news of their tour via Twitter earlier today (Friday, November 15) – which marks the 25 anniversary of the release of ‘CrazySexyCool,’ –

In an interview to the BBC, Chilli was asked what she thinks of the rumours that TLC could make their Glastonbury debut in 2020 – “Is that what you heard? I heard that too. That’s what I’m hearing,” she giggles, slyly.
“I’m hoping. Fingers crossed, toes crossed, legs crossed. Everything that it’s possible to cross, it’s crossed.”
This may come as a surprise to some, but TLC have only ever played live in the UK twice before, both times in London. They performed at Koko in Camden in 2017, then headlined the Mighty Hoopla festival in Brockwell Park the following year.
Having sold over 70 million records in their career while presiding over hits which include ‘Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg’, ‘No Scrubs’, ‘Creep’, ‘Unpretty’ and, of course, ‘Waterfalls’ – it may come as a surprise to some, but TLC have only ever played live in the UK twice before, both times in London. They performed at Koko in Camden in 2017, then headlined the Mighty Hoopla festival in Brockwell Park the following year.
Meanwhile, Mike Skinner and Carl Cox are the latest big-scale artist to self-confirm for Glastonbury 50th, following official announcement confirmations of both Wolf Alice and Diana Ross for the 2020 bill.
Despite the fact that the full line-up for Glastonbury 2020 has yet to be released – all tickets for the Festival’s 50th anniversary have now sold out, with General Admission tickets selling out in 33 minutes, following Coach + Ticket Packages which sold out in just 27 minutes.
There are still ways to go to Glastonbury next year, and in addition to being able to volunteer – there will also be a resale of any cancelled tickets in the spring, with coach + ticket packages going up for resale on April 16 – followed by a general admission tickets resale (which don’t include travel) on April 19.
Glastonbury 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.
