TLC's 'I Love the '90s' concert at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg: Canceled
If you were hoping to see TLC on their first spin through Tampa Bay in about a quarter-century, you'll have to wait a little longer.
The "I Love the '90s: The Party Continues" concert scheduled for Sept. 10 at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg has been canceled, according to a spokeswoman for the Mahaffey Theater next door, which was handling ticketing. TLC's Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas were to headline the show, along with Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath, Coolio and All-4-One.
Mahaffey spokeswoman Cindy Cockburn said the show would not be coming to St. Pete after all due to "unforeseen circumstances."
It's a bummer, because as Chilli told the Times in a recent phone interview, TLC's new recent tours, their first major outings since the 2002 death of bandmate Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, have been a blast.
"We're very blessed to be in the position to still have longevity, that people still want to hear your songs and are even interested in new music, and want new music from you, which is what we've given them," she said.
For more details on the canceled show, call the Mahaffey's box office at (727) 892-5767.
