For the very first time in New Zealand, Illusive Presents, Frontier Touring and Mai FM are ecstatic to announce that two of the biggest names in contemporary RNB – Boyz II Menand TLC – will return to New Zealand this summer for one special co-headline show in Christchurch. This will be the first time TLC have ever visited the South Island, and will mark the first show down south for Boyz II Men this decade.
One of the music industry’s most elite and truly iconic R&B groups, over the past two decades Boyz II Men have given fans a rich catalogue of hits filled with smooth harmonies and enduring themes. The trio’s four Grammy Awards are just the tip of the iceberg: throughout their 25-year career, Boyz II Men have numerous prestigious accolades to their name including nine American Music Awards, nine Soul Train Awards and three Billboard Music Awards.
Boyz II Men have won fans the world over with their soulful multi-octave sound and incredible vocals from mega hits like ‘End Of The Road’, ‘I’ll Make Love To You’ and ‘One Sweet Day (feat. Mariah Carey)’ plus smooth tunes from recent release Under The Streetlight (out now through Universal Music) like ‘Ladies Man’ and ‘Stay’.
TLC is one of history’s most influential female hip-hop and R&B acts and will return to New Zealand for only the second time ever after two phenomenal shows in 2016
These three empowered women, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, captured the world’s attention with their sassy and sophisticated R&B set against a socially conscious lyrical style. Tragically in 2002, Lopes was killed in a car accident. Refusing to call it quits in honour of their fallen sister T-Boz and Chilli have since continued to tour worldwide.
Selling 65 million records worldwide with five Grammy Awards under their belt, TLC remain a force to be reckoned with. Releasing their first album in 15 years in June (through Liberator Music) they produced hits ‘Haters’ and ‘Way Back (feat. Snoop Dogg)’ that follow the same CrazySexyCool style of anthems ‘No Scrubs’, ‘Waterfalls’ and ‘Unpretty’.
With two of the hottest names in contemporary RNB on one stage, fans are encouraged to act quickly in snapping up their tickets. Tickets start from $99.90 with several options available – tickets on sale from Friday 24 November.
