Lilith Fair cancels 10 more shows; Chicago is still on

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Lilith is having trouble getting back to the garden. The 2010 Lilith Fair, a reconstituted version of the female-centric fest of old, has canceled 10 more shows. The festival announced it's yanking scheduled dates from these cities: Salt Lake City (7/12), 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). Refunds are available at point of purchase.

The scheduled Chicago date, July 17 at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheater, is still on the books.

This comes shortly after Lilith canceled shows in Nashville and Phoenix. These further cancellations were tipped off recently when Norah Jones' tour schedule suddenly opened up.

"We are in the midst of one of the most challenging summer concert seasons with many tours being cancelled outright," Lilith co-founder Terry McBride says in a statement. "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."
