AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Fresh of appearances at Sunday night’s AMA Music Awards show and ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, the Detroit Pistons announced today that R&B group TLC will perform during halftime of the Detroit Pistons game versus the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday, November 29 at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

“We are pleased to announce TLC as the halftime entertainment for our game vs. the Los Angeles Lakers on November 29,” said Harlan Hendrickson, Vice President of Marketing for Palace Sports & Entertainment and the Pistons. “Adding musical performances to our halftime line-up is a unique opportunity to thrill our fans and add value to the overall basketball experience.”

Originally composed of singer Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, rapper Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and singer Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, the group was very successful in the early 1990s. TLCs debut album, Ooooooohhh…On the TLC Tip, sold 6 million copies worldwide. That success was surpassed by their second album, CrazySexyCool, which was certified diamond by the RIAA — a first for a female group. It eventually sold 23 million copies worldwide. Five years later, in 1999, the group released their third album, FanMail, which debuted at number one and sold more than 11 million copies worldwide. The subsequent tour became the highest grossing tour of all time by a female band.

Billboard magazine ranked TLC as one of the greatest musical trios. Between 1992 and 2002, the band had ten top ten singles, four number one singles, four multi-platinum albums, and won five Grammy Awards. At the end of 1999, TLC was ranked as the seventh most successful act of the 1990s by Billboard. In 2008, the group was inducted into the All-Time Hot 100 Artist Hall of Fame by the same magazine. In 2012, TLC ranked 12th on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women in Music, and as the number one all girl group.
