SOFT TICKET SALES COULD KEEP LILITH FAIR AWAY

Here's some potentially devastating news: Tampa's Lilith Fair tour stop on Aug. 11 might be canceled. According to the Toronto Globe and Mail, the reincarnated Lilith Fair has seen softer-than-expected ticket sales, and shows in Nashville and Phoenix have been canceled. The paper also reported that Norah Jones, right, has scrapped all of her dates - Tampa, West Palm Beach, Houston, Dallas and Birmingham, Ala. (although they're still listed on Jones' website, and she's still listed on Lilith's Tampa site). "Norah was prepared to do all the Lilith dates she was contracted for and then those dates were canceled," her manager, Sam Feldman, told the Globe and Mail. Said Lilith Fair co-founder Terry McBride, to the newspaper: "We review our sales on a weekly basis. If we cancel any more, we will announce accordingly." Media representatives for Lilith Fair and Live Nation say they're scrambling to get information from the tour's higher-ups, who are on the road.
