TLC were forced to reschedule some of the dates on their current ‘Celebration of CrazySexyCool’ tour on Oct 2, after revealing that T-Boz had been suffering from an allergic reaction to the recreational smoking that had taken place backstage at a previous show in Belton, TX on Sept 30.
As a result, their shows in Texas on Oct 2 and Oct 3 were rescheduled to Oct 4 and Oct 5, respectively. However, due to the rescheduling of the Houston and Dallas dates, their tour buses and trucks are not logistically able to make the performance at the Mesa Amphitheatre in Arizona on time. Therefore, they are unfortunately forced to cancel the show on Oct 6.
In a statement, TLC posted, “Due to extreme cigarette and recreational smoke being present backstage at a previous show, T-Boz suffered an allergic reaction. The group has always enforced a strict no smoking policy at their shows in an effort to prevent any health related issues for the group and/or crew.”
See you on TUESDAY Dallas!!!! 😊😘😊😘 pic.twitter.com/kqPzShmWIm— TLC (@OfficialTLC) October 3, 2021
Chilli insists that although the Arizona date is now cancelled, that it will indeed be rescheduled at a later date. “Arizona fans we love you and will be back soon!”, they said in a statement.
TLC’s show on Oct 30 at the Spirit Mountain Casino in Oregon has also been cancelled. All current ticket holders will receive a refund within 14 business days.
Exposure to the toxins in cigarettes is very dangerous for T-Boz because she has Sickle Cell Anemia. The disease itself comes with an increased risk of pulmonary abnormality due to deoxygenated hemoglobin, and cigarette smoke only increases the chances of severe illness.
The remaining dates on the tour will go ahead as planned, so fans wishing to attend can still get tickets at livenation.com and ticketmaster.com
Please ensure you refrain from smoking whilst in attendance to the shows.
TLC are being supported by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony on this tour.
Wishing TLC a continued healthy tour. Glad to see T-Boz was able to attend the show tonight in Houston, TX at the Smart Financial Centre in Sugar Land. Check them out in the clip below:
