Norah Jones [ tickets ], Loretta Lynn [ tickets ], Heart [ tickets ] and Cat Power [ tickets ] are among the new artists who've signed on for this year's Lilith Fair [ tickets ] tour, the itinerary for which continues to grow.
Other recent additions to the tour's lineup include Loretta Sia, Gossip, La Roux, Beth Orton, Ceci Bastida, Erin McCarley, Frazey Ford, Julia Othmer, Kate Nash, Lights, Missy Higgins, Lissie, Marina & The Diamonds, Priscilla Renea, Rosie Thomas, Melissa McClelland, Toby Lightman and Elizaveta. Additional "major artists" will be announced in the coming weeks, according to a press release.
"I'm happy they wanted me on this Lilith tour," Lynn said in a prepared statement. "I have never done shows just with other girl singers before. When I first started out, they said girl singers couldn't sell records or concert tickets. We've come a long way since then and we're gonna have a big time out there!"
"We are thrilled that Lilith 2010 is in our future," reads a statement from Heart--sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson. "To be a part of all that depth and power will be beyond exciting! This is stunning intent for women of the new decade."
"Lilith Fair was always one of those things that I wish I'd been a cool enough kid to know about and go to!" Higgins said. "But even if I had known about it then, I would've been on the other side of the world here in Australia. I've always secretly hoped they'd bring it back so that I could beg to be a part of it! Needless to say I'm really excited to have been asked, especially as this is the first Lilith to be taken to the new generation."
In addition to expanding the tour's talent roster, organizers have roughly doubled the number of cities where the tour will touch down. The list of all 32 cities is included below; dates and venues have not yet been announced.
As previously reported, the 2010 Lilith Fair tour marks the event's return after at 11-year Hiatus. Previously confirmed artists include Sarah McLachlan, Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow, Colbie Caillat, Erykah Badu, Ke$ha, Tegan and Sara, Miranda Lambert and Metric.
