Erykah Badu, Sinead O'Connor, Natalie Merchant To Join Lilith Fair

After the resounding success it found in its maiden voyage last year, it's no surprise that Sarah McLachlan's Lilith Fair tour will be back this summer with a run that begins in Portland, Oregon on June 19.

This time out, Erykah Badu, Sinead O'Connor, and Natalie Merchant will join return performers the Indigo Girls on the tour. Other main stage acts will soon be added to the bill. Tara McLean and K's Choice will be among the artists hitting the second stage this summer.

The tour will be returning to relatively familiar ground for its launch this year; last year's tour also kicked off in the Pacific Northwest at the Gorge in George, Washington.
