Australia to get a Taste of Lilith tour

Troubled concert tour to begin Aussie trek in October

The 2010 revival of the Lilith tour will continue in Australia in October under the handle a Taste of Lilith, despite a disastrous U.S. trek that saw cancellation of one-third of the tour’s booked dates and the exit of several high-profile stars.

The all-femme jaunt announced Monday that despite its problems Stateside, Lilith raised some $500,000 for charity.

The Lilith-branded shows Down Under will be much-scaled-down affairs in five major markets. Beginning Oct. 4 at the Enmore Theater in Sydney, tour is set for dates in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Unlike the multi-artist American dates, Aussie shows will feature just a handful of acts: festival co-founder Sarah McLachlan, Dixie Chicks spin-off the Court Yard Hounds, and rising locals Kate Miller-Heidke and the Verses (siblings Ella and Jesse Hooper).

The two-tier price for the shows — considered a barrier by some during the U.S. tour — is high, with a standard A$149 ticket ($133) and platinum reserved ducats for $222.

Stateside, Lilith overcame sluggish sales and the withdrawal of headliners Kelly Clarkson, Norah Jones and Carly Simon to raise $200,000 for local women’s charities.

An additional $300,000 was earmarked for the 14C campaign, which donated growth capital to the environmental and social groups Alter Eco, Better World Books, To-Go Ware and Grameen America.

During the Aussie tour, $1 will be donated from each ticket sold to the Ovarian Cancer Research Center.
