In a press release, Lynn stated: “I’m happy they wanted me on this Lilith tour. I have never done shows just with other girl singers before. When I first started out, they said girl singers couldn’t sell records or concert tickets. We’ve come a long way since then and we’re gonna have a big time out there!”
Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart were quoted as being “thrilled” to be part of Lilith 2010.
