If you missed TLC in action last weekend in San Diego, you missed out on a fantastic show!

The girls were part of this years KAABOO Del Mar 3-day music festival, and they shared the stage on the final day of the event on September 16 with Wiz Khalifa, Slash, Jewel and Katy Perry!

TLC and Katy Perry had some catching up backstage. Katy was famously named as one of the backers for TLC’s Kickstarter campaign in 2015, which funded last years self-titled album. (They have vowed to still make that slumber party happen!)

TLC, who usually perform last at the shows they headline, performed at a much earlier time, kicking off their set at 2:45PM, something they aren’t planning on getting used to. Nonetheless, they put on an amazing show,  performing their hits back-to-back and taking the crowd Way Back!

Katy Perry closed the show with a final 90 minute performance of her Witness world tour, complete with 5 costume changes and plenty of, yes, Fireworks.

Watch the full TLC set below:

Various stars contributed to TLC’s campaign, from Katy Perry (who pledged $5,000) and their Main Event Tour friends New Kids On The Block (pledging a whopping $10,000)! Celebrities like Mariah Carey and Bette Midler have also shown support!

TLC offered many exciting rewards for fans to pledge for as a thank you for supporting the album fundraiser.

Meet and greets, personalized voicemails, slumber parties, date at the movies, workout sessions, handwritten lyrics, platinum plaques,  studio session meets and many more rewards on top of signed copies of the new album!

TLC have been working hard to ensure it will be the finest body of work for all the fans who contributed to make this once in a lifetime chance to be part of the album happen!

The album is complete and being mixed! The finer details are being fine tuned in order to release the album in the best way possible, independently.

This is why Kickstarter was the best way to avoid going through record labels, have full control of the content and to let the fans contribute. Nobody wants that album more than us, so we’re proud to be a part of TLC history to make this 5th album happen!

There is no official release date as of yet, but you can expect it be with us this Summer in the 2nd quarter! A single will be dropping before that and an update via Kickstarter will be coming very soon, so stay tuned!

That we agree! Not just the dopest videos but the dopest TV appearances and performances too.

All of TLC’s iconic outfits were thanks to Julieanne Mijares. It would be awesome to see them reunite for the new upcoming TLC album!
