The Lilith Fair dates are in big trouble – headliner Kelly Clarkson has scrapped her shows on the touring festival.
Organisers of the all-female roadshow have already lost Norah Jones for some gigs and they’ve been forced to scrap more than 10 dates due to poor ticket sales – and now Clarkson has quit the tour.

She has announced that she is skipping her previously scheduled Lilith dates to complete work on her upcoming studio album.

Lilith Tour co-founder Sarah McLachlan and rotating headliners Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Emmylou Harris and Loretta Lynn will continue with the remaining 24 dates as planned, with some dates selling well.
