Late Thursday, the 2010 Lilith tour finally announced the cancellation of 10 tour dates, following several days of obfuscation by organizers after the Globe and Mail, a Toronto news outlet, broke the story last Friday.
The all-woman trek’s shows in Salt Lake City (July 12), Montreal (7/23), Raleigh (8/4), Charlotte (8/6), West Palm Beach (8/10), Tampa (8/11), Birmingham (8/12), Austin (8/14), Houston (8/15) and Dallas (8/16) have been dropped, and refunds are available at point of purchase.
Lilith co-founder and Nettwerk head Terry McBride said in a statement, “We are in the midst of one of the most challenging summer concert seasons with many tours being canceled outright. Everyone involved with the tour would like to apologize to the fans and artists scheduled to play in these markets, and express appreciation for all the support for the festival’s return. Lilith remains the only tour of its kind, and we are confident that fans will be amazed by what each date has to offer.”
