TLC have revealed plans for their first gig in four years.

The legendary girl group will be playing The Mixtape Festival at Hersheypark Stadium, in Hershey, Pennsylvania, from July 26-27, alongside New Kids On The Block, Hanson and Boyz II Men.

Consequence of Sound reports that this will be the band's first show since a 2009 appearance in Japan.

Last year it was reported that TLC were looking into touring with a hologram of late band member Lisa 'Left-Eye' Lopes, who died at the age of 30 in a car accident on April 25, 2002 in Honduras.

Singer Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas told Metro: "The hologram is something we talked about and thought about years ago, obviously timing is everything but we're definitely talking about it."

On the 10th anniversary of Lopes' death, it was reported that the surviving members of the trio were planning to tour using Lopes' recorded vocals.

TLC picked up the award for outstanding contribution to music at the 2012 MOBO awards. The band released their fourth album, '3D' in 2002, six months after the death of Lopes.
