Lady rockers are the latest victims of a weak concert season. Organizers of the all-female Lilith Fair Festival Tour, cancelled almost one-third of the scheduled shows on Thursday.
The lineup will vary as the tour proceeds, with artists such as Emmylou Harris, Carly Simon, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, Selena Gomez and Heart lined up for appearances.
Organizers originally scheduled 33 dates, but McLachlan admitted that ticket sales for the shows were “pretty soft.”
The 2010 tour, Lilith Fair’s first incarnation since 1999, kicked off last week. That show — which featured Sheryl Crow, Erykah Badu, and Colbie Caillat –drew just 9,000 people to a stadium that holds approximately 35,000.
Here are the affected tour stops: Salt Lake City (July 12), Montreal (July 23), Raleigh, N.C. (Aug. 4), Charlotte, NC (Aug. 6), West Palm Beach, Fla. (Aug. 10), Tampa, Fla. (Aug. 11), Birmingham, Ala. (Aug. 12), Austin (Aug. 14), Houston (Aug. 15) and Dallas (Aug. 16).
Refunds are available to ticketholders at the point of purchase.
