Realizing that the ship had sailed, Canadian songstress said in a recent interview that Lilith Fair has run its course and she would not try to do it again. Hoping to revive the ultra successful female only music festival, McLachlan started it up again last year. It was less that successful with many dates (including Montreal) being cancelled and others happening in front of small crowds.
Not willing to completely let go of the female collective music experience, McLachlan’s latest tour features a more collaborative show rather than your traditional opening acts preceding the headliner. For the entire evening, including an intermission, she will perform onstage with Melissa McClelland and Butterfly Boucher. Each woman, with the focus being on McLachlan, will have the chance to perform their own songs accompanied by the other two.
Touring this time in smaller more intimate venues, it seems like this is the perfect type of show for McLachlan. She not only is sharing the spotlight, but also will be taking and answering questions from the audience.
Songwise you can expect the usual big hits like Angel, Building a Mystery, Possession, Fallen, Hold On, Aida, and Sweet Surrender from her. But do expect her to have stripped them down and reworked them.
Unfortunately both shows are sold out.
