Lilith Fair has revealed its complete list of dates for this summer's 36-show trek. The Sarah McLachlan-headlined roving festival will kick off on June 27th in Calgary, Alberta, and hit up every major market before wrapping in Dallas, Texas on August 16th. Rihanna — who announced her own headlining tour last week — has signed on for one gig: July 12th in Salt Lake City. Tickets for most dates are on sale now at LilithFair.com with the remaining dates beginning sales on April 17th.

The fest — which is returning for the first time in 10 years — is one of the most eclectic of the season, featuring hip-hop and R&B artists (Mary J. Blige, Janelle Monae), pop acts (Ke$ha, Kelly Clarkson), rock bands (Gossip, Tegan and Sara), icons (Loretta Lynn, Emmylou Harris) along with Lilith Fair veterans like Indigo Girls and Erykah Badu.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
