With the news of Live Nation Entertainment trying to stay afloat, we now bring you news of another major tour that is trying to survive – which isn’t a good statement considering the fact that this is their revival year. Of course, we’re talking about Lilith Fair – the music festival which celebrates women in music.
When creators Sarah McLachlan and Nettwerk Music Group CEO, Terry McBride, announced the return of Lilith Fair we were all for it but it seems like they’re having some trouble holding the tour together. We can now add Carly Simon to the list of artists who have had to cancel dates.

As we’ve previously reported, despite the success (if by success you mean an endless, rolling field of thousands upon thousands of bros generating a hazy cloud of Axe Body Spray above them like L.A. smog in miniature) of festivals like Coachella, the summer of 2010 is not exactly boding well for music festivals and concert tours – especially Lilith Fair. The ladies-only festival has been forced to cancel ten more dates from their summer itinerary, after having already cancelled two in Phoenix and Nashville, according to Spinner.

Despite a dizzying array of ‘what the hell?’ headliners at various music festivals this year (Gorillaz over Pavement at Coachella, the Axis of Evil for Lollapalooza, and now The Eagles – yes, really – for Austin City Limits), 2010 looks to be a good year for most fests – Coachella sold out (in more ways than one), and the continued buzz behind Lolla all but ensures a capacity audience. Hell, even ACL will probably reach capacity (I mean, somebody out there had to have bought all those copies of Hell Freezes Over).
That said, Spinner reports that one fest is floundering a month before it even begins: the 2010 resurrection of the all-female Lilith Fair. Maybe it’s those pre-surcharge $250 tickets, or the lack of a Gaga-like monstrosity on the bill. Either way, Lilith may be in trouble.

We’ve announced a lineup bursting with female talent along with the cities announced, but we’ve got more news to give you!
The touring festival is not limiting themselves, or those who plan to attend, with a set number of artists. They’ve just announced more artists such as Kelly Clarkson, The Bangles, and The Go-Go’s have been added to the lineup. Check below to see if your favorite female musician will be joining them…

Lilith Fair has finally revealed their first round of artists to tour in 2010 after much anticpation following their announced dates. In the midst of men who fell in love with grunge rock more than the ladies during the 90s, many females were also uniting together to celebrate strong womanhood. With politics and cultural acceptance becoming more radical than ever, feminism has also gotten stronger.
The first chunk of the Lilith Fair is pretty impressive boasting familiar faces such as co-found Sarah McLachlan, herself, Indigo Girls and Sheryl Crow. Fresh new faces were also taken into consideration with Metric, Meaghan Smith, and Corinne Bailey Rae. Check the first round of ladies after the jump!

Cue up the Indigo Girls. Lilith Fair is back!
The popular, all-female summer music festival co-founded by Sarah McLachlan, which ran from 1997 to 1999, will make its return next year.
Might be a good time to get reacquainted with my copies of Firecracker, Surfacing and A Few Small Repairs.
