(Newser) – Tupac isn't the only artist experiencing a resurrection: Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes will appear with her TLC bandmates in an upcoming reunion tour, despite the fact that she died 10 years ago, the group's rep tells TMZ. Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas are currently planning the tour, which will take place this year in the US. Lopes' vocals will be incorporated into the live show, and her image will be projected onto a large screen.

The group will use archival footage rather than digitally creating a new performance, Billboard notes. "The word anniversary means a celebration. For us, her death will never be a celebration, it's still something that hurts," Watkins says in a statement. Adds Thomas, "Lisa is our sister. You never get over losing a family member. We love her and we miss her and that isn't ever going to change."
