After weeks of teasing us with artist announcements and tour cities, Lilith 2010 is finally throwing out some real red meat with eight initial dates.

The opening date for the resurgent tour has yet to be announced, but we know that an early stop (though not the first stop, according to our sources), will be July 2 at The Amphitheater at Clark County in Portland, Ore. Tickets for that date and seven others go on sale this Saturday, March 27 via Lilithfair.com and LiveNation.com.

Additionally, the Lilith folks have revealed that there will be 11 artists on each date out of the revolving template of more than 80 acts. And only tour creator Sarah McLachlan will play every show.
Here are first announced stops for the 36-city tour. Below the dates is the growing list of participating acts.
