Probably not. But a flannel may or may not make an appearance.

True Story:

The first year of Lilith Fair, a friend and his brother asked my wife and I if they could go to the show with us since they thought it would be odd for two guys to go alone. We said yes since we all liked the same artists, so we sat and watched and had a good time. While we were sitting between acts and the ground began to fill in with more people, a couple of cute girls came and sat by my friend and his brother. He finally talked to one of the girls, and it turns out she was a stripper and had business cards. He chatted with her the rest of the night, but never bothered to call her afterward.

Anyway...Yes Lilith Fair is female focused, but there are plenty (maybe even a majority, HA!) of hetero women attending, too. And they may even be forward enough to START a conversation with a guy there. After all, liking the same music is a good start to possibly dating someone. (and she might even be a stripper )

Wow, I hadn't seen all of the ticket prices. I guess amphitheaters are your friend when it comes to prices and reserved seating. At least you can still get in for about $50, but WTF is a Diamond package for $756?

If you are considering a Lilith Fair show in place of U2 now this summer, there are several shows with 2-for-1 GA tickets. Must purchase by May 28, code is COFFEE

V-You can find it on their FB page.

(I guess the tour isn't selling that well.)

I saw that yesterday and thought either the ticket prices were very high or the tour wasn't selling well.

I'm glad I waited to buy tickets. GAs were $33 USD each with the 2-4-1 (plus fees).

Another 10 shows canceled yesterday. Yikes! Not a good tour.

I think the marketing has sucked, and the high-ish ticket prices turned people off.

I'm still going to Las Vegas and Minneapolis, but ironically, Mpls. was moved indoors to the Target Center and Vegas was moved outdoors at Mandalay Bay.

It should be a good show, and I believe you can find bargain tickets still.

I originally had thought about extending our U2 trip to Montreal to catch Lilith Fair there, too. OMG! I am glad I didn't.

That doesn't sound good. I agree that the marketing was poor. I don't recall seeing any advertising for it.

I haven't been particularly bowled over by much of the line-up either, so between all of that and the ticket price, I can understand why people are willing to pass.

Have fun at your two shows. Where was the Vegas show supposed to be originally?
