Kelly Clarkson Pulls out of Lilith Fair in Minneapolis – Tour Sales Have Been Sluggish

Kelly Ckarkson has pulled out of Lilith Fair in Minneapolis, MN on July 18. There’s no official word why Kelly is off the line-up, but reports that the all-female tour is experiencing sluggish sales could be a factor.

Norah Jones is off the tour due to canceled dates. Along with cancellations, the tour has moved to smaller venues in some cities.

According to Canada’s Globe and Mail, dates in West Palm Beach and Tampa, FL, Birmingham, AL, Houston and Dallas TX have been canceled.

Tickets range from $10 to $250 each, with most in the $36 to $133 range.

Kelly’s website, has her listed for 14 Lilith dates. The Minneapolis (7/18), Detroit (7/21) and Montreal (7/23) no longer have “Buy Tickets” buttons next to their listing. (corrected)

There has been no official word of cancellations from the Lilith Fair organizers.  Along with Kelly, the tour features Erykah Badu Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow, and Rihanna among others.

The original Lilith tour ran from 1997 to 1999.
