This November, there's only one piece of advice worth listening to — and you can get it right from the source. Back in 1995, TLC memorably told us all not to go chasing waterfalls, and to just stick to the rivers and the lakes that we're used to. Thanks to their slot on the lineup for ZM Friday Jams Live, they'll be singing those words of wisdom all over again.

This year's biggest nostalgic throwback concert is back for 2022 in November — and, as well as one of the biggest girl groups of the 90s, it's bringing a heap of other nostalgic names to Auckland's Western Springs Stadium. Shaggy will get boombastic, Craig David will croon about his weekly routine and Ashanti will rock wit u. Also on the lineup: Akon, Macklemore, Jay Sean and Dru Hill.

From remaining TLC members T-Boz and Chilli, who also played this year's Glastonbury back in June, expect to hear everything from 'Creep' through to 'Unpretty'.

From the rest of the bill, 'Thrift Shop, 'Same Love', 'I Wanna Love You', 'Don't Matter', 'Walking Away', 'What's Your Flava', 'Baby', 'Foolish', 'It Wasn't Me', 'In the Summertime', 'Ride It' and more will get a whirl.

By now, with Bay Dreams locked in for a summer return and a heap of huge tours heading Down Under before 2022 is out, it's clear that live music is back. But when the big retro gigs start happening again, you know that the touring music circuit is returning to pre-pandemic normality.
