Lilith Fair A Charity Success!

wenn2907189jb__opt.jpg

Well there's an upside!

Even though this summer's Lilith Fair had to cancel a lot of dates because of poor ticket sales, the tour raised over $500,000 for North American charity organizations!

Sarah McLachlan says:

"I have a moral and social responsibility as a human being to give back what I can. Lilith 2010 was an amazing experience for me on so many levels. It felt so great to be back out on the road and sharing the stage with so many talented women. For me, Lilith has always represented a sense of community, and that's the greatest thing I take away from these shows.

"To be able to create an environment where both established artists and up-and-comers can join together, learn from one another and feed off each other's energy is such a great gift."

Silver linings!

Sarah McLachlan Hopes For Lilith Fair Next Year!

Filed under: Music MinuteSarah McLachlan

Who knows? 2011 could be a much better year for them!

Even though the revival of Lilith Fair this year has been less than ideal, founder Sarah McLachlan is determined for it to work, and intends on doing it again in 2011!

She reveals:

“I should preface everything I say by saying I’m a live-in-the-moment kind of girl. We’re planning on doing it next year, talking about a five-year plan. Do any of us know where we’re going to be in 15 years? We’re all here right now, and that’s sort of where I’m at. We’re sort of trying to figure out what all the possibilities are this year. We came out loud and proud with a huge roster, with a lot of great artists and a lot of diversity. And came into a tricky time in touring.”

We're thrilled that you haven't let the tour's problems get you down, bb! We imagine re-starting something of this magnitude has its growing pains!

We'll keep our fingers crossed for next year! Keep your head up!

Another one bites the dust!

Carly Simon is the latest performer to pull out of the Lilith Fair, citing medical reasons after the singer injured her foot.

Organizers of the festival made a statement, saying:

"We are saddened to announce Carly Simon had to withdraw from three Lilith Fair dates for medical reasons.

Last week, Simon suffered an injury by seriously fracturing and breaking her foot, which will prevent her from performing at these shows. Everyone on the Lilith tour wishes Simon a speedy recovery."

This comes after Norah Jones and Kelly Clarkson have announced that they're canceling their appearances on the tour too.

Is anyone still doing Lilith Fair??

What a bummer! The ticket sales must be getting really rough!

The 2010 Lilith Fair Tour has announced the cancellation of ten upcoming shows!

Co-found Terry McBride explains:

“We are in the midst of one of the most challenging summer concert seasons with many tours being cancelled 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.”

The all-woman music tour will no longer be playing in Salt Lake City, Montreal, Raleigh, Charlotte, West Palm Beach, Tampa, Birmingham, Austin, Houston, and Dallas. Refunds are available to those who already purchased tickets.

Rough!

What do U think?? Are U disappointed to see Lilith Fair under performing??

This is NOT good!

Due to lackluster sales, Sarah McLachlan's Lilith Fair has been canceling tour dates!

Norah Jones was scheduled to play between August 10 and 16 in West Palm Beach, Tampa, Birmingham, Dallas and Houston, but according to her management all of those dates have been canceled.

Venues have been changed in some cities as well to smaller spaces because of the soft ticket sales.

What gives??

The Go-Go's Cancel Their Farewell Tour

Filed under: Music MinuteSad Sad

wenn734606jb.jpg

So sad. We were looking forward to this, too!

The Go-Go's have cancelled their summer tour after Jane Wiedlin tore her ACL!

They released this note:

It is with great regret that the Go-Go’s announce today the cancellation of Happily Ever After, their summer farewell tour. The tour was scheduled to kick off July 7 at Lilith Fair San Diego, and conclude in Austin, TX on July 27. The band will also be unable to perform live on Good Morning America, scheduled for July 16 in New York’s Central Park.

The news comes as a result of guitarist Jane Wiedlin injuring herself after a 20-foot fall while hiking near her home in Northern California a couple of weeks ago. Jane is scheduled for ACL replacement surgery for her knee in the coming weeks, with a prognosis of up to a year recovery time.

The band is heartbroken and hopes their fans will send best wishes for Jane’s speedy recovery. In the meantime, tickets can be refunded at point of purchase.

Poor thing! Such an unfortunate set of circumstances!

We sincerely hope Jane recovers - keep your chin up, bb! We wish you only the best!
