More artist thoughts on joining the 2010 Lilith Tour:
Country legend Loretta Lynn:
"I'm happy they wanted me on this Lilith tour. 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!"
Rock duo Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart:
"We are thrilled that Lilith 2010 is in our future...to be a part of all that depth and power will be beyond exciting! This is stunning intent for women of the new decade.”
Australian singer/songwriter Missy Higgins:
“Lilith Fair was always one of those things that I wish I'd been a cool enough kid to know about and go to! 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.”
The 2010 Lilith Tour previously announced a multi-platform media partnership with ABC Entertainment, which entails creative collaboration in weaving confirmed artists and Lilith across ABC’s programming and online in the months leading up to and during next summer’s tour, including ABC’s physical presence at each tour date. More details to follow.
