Lilith Fair Returns, Shows Onsale 3-27


Different performers
for different shows will make “diversity” the operative term. Oddly, Pavement
was not invited, making it the only festival this year the indie avatars won’t
be playing.

It’s been almost 11 years since the demise of Lilith Fair,
that estrogen-packed traveling summer festival co-founded by Sarah McLachlan,
but as we noted several months ago, organizers decided 2010 was the right time
to resurrect the event, what with summer festivals still going strong, shitty
economy be damned.


Just announced, then, ticket onsale for the first 8 dates of
the 2010 Lilith Tour – Saturday, March 27, via and
Those cities are listed below.


Much like
the original Lilith Fair, there will be 11 artists on each date, with only two
consistencies per show: the Lilith Local Talent Search winner who
starts the day and headliner Sarah McLachlan. The remaining acts on the line-up
are constantly rotating from among more than 80 acts.


It’s to be
a 36-city run of the sheds: Atlanta, Austin, Birmingham, Boston, Calgary, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Edmonton, Hartford, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Montreal, Nashville, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Raleigh, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa, Toronto, Vancouver, DC and West Palm
