Yesterday’s Lilith Fair marked the end of an 11-year hiatus for the all-female vocal tour at Rexall Place.
Headlining is singer/songwriter and co-founder Sarah McLachlan. Fellow musicians Sheryl Crow, Erykah Badu, Sugarland, and other talented acts join the multi-platinum artist on three separate stages.
The award-winning lineup is excited to be on tour together to promote the music as well as the social causes affiliated with the tour, McLachlan said.
“We have something we need to say,” she said. “And this is how we choose to say it.”
Every tour date has a local beneficiary. Josephine Pallard from the Changing Together Centre for Immigrant Women represented the organization from Edmonton. One dollar from every ticket sold here in Edmonton goes to support the centre.
Over its original three-year run, Lilith Fair gathered an attendance of over 1.5 million fans and raised over $10 million in funding for local and national women’s organizations.
