Is Lilith Tour going a little too commercial with addition of Rihanna?

by Pat Prince — Rihanna has been added to the Lilith Tour for a “special appearance” at the Salt Lake City date on Monday, July 12.

Ok. Rihanna is a woman. Check. But, c’mon, isn’t she a little too mainstream pop for this event?

And maybe I’m overreacting a bit. After all, Ke$ha is there, too. But who’s up next for the Lilith Tour? I think crowds should really draw the line when it gets to Celine Dion.

Anyway, ladies, a limited number of Ladies Night 4-Pack are available for the Lilith Tour while supplies last. These ticket packages will be offered for $99, which includes four lawn tickets to participating venues.

I wonder if  four lawn chairs can be thrown in for that price, too?

  1. Good morning, I want to say many thanks for an captivating site about a subject I have had an interest in for a while now. I have been looking in and looking at the comments avidly so just wanted to express my thanks for providing me with some very informative reading material. I look forward to more, and taking a more active part in the talks here, whilst picking up some information too!!

  2. I don’t know what the talk is concerning Rihanna going to a sex store. It’s legal, it is a free country and she should be able to do what she wishes to.
