Lilith Tour sets artists for 2010

McLachlan, Crow return amid diverse female bill

First acts announced for the revived Lilith Tour in 2010 comprise a diverse bill of seasoned and breaking female artists across a wide span of genres.

Moveable fest will hit at least 18 major markets in the U.S. and Canada next year; specific dates have not yet been announced.

Veterans of the top-grossing 1997-99 Lilith Fair treks returning to the tour’s stages next year include co-founder Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, Emmylou Harris, Indigo Girls, Tegan and Sara and Erykah Badu.

Other performers include recruits from rock and pop (Metric, A Fine Frenzy, Brandi Carlile, Corinne Bailey Rae, Colbie Caillat, Sara Bareilles, the Submarines, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals), R&B (Mary J. Blige, Jill Scott, Ke$ha) and country (Sugarland, Miranda Lambert).

Nettwerk Music Group CEO Terry McBride said in a statement, “The 2010 Lilith Tour isn’t just a celebration of women in music, but a celebration of diverse female voices across all genres.”
