Hip-hop hitmakers Nelly and Flo Rida are heading to metro Detroit this summer, and they're bringing along surviving members of '90s girl group, TLC.

The trio of acts are headed to DTE Energy Music Theatre on Saturday, Aug. 17 as part of the third birthday celebration of throwback hip-hop and R&B station, 105.1 The Bounce.

Grammy-winning rapper Nelly, known for his hits "Dilemma," "Ride Wit Me," and club rager, "Hot in Herre," heads the bill.

Founding TLC members Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas will support their self-titled 2017 record, as well as perform Billboard hits "No Scrubs" and "Waterfalls." TLC is the group's first record since 2002's 3D, the last recorded album to feature Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes who was killed in a traffic accident in Honduras that year.

Flo Rida rounds out the bill with a slew of multi-platinum party-hearty singles such as "Good Feeling," "Low (feat. T-Pain)," and "Right Round (feat. Ke$ha)."

Tickets start at $25 with a limited number of four-pack lawn tickets available for $80. Tickets go on sale on Friday, March 15 at 10 a.m. and will be available to purchase at
