After months of announcing a wide array of stars that will perform various dates on this summer’s Lilith Fair tour, the actual lineup for the tour’s Boston show has finallly been announced. Sarah McLachlan, the tour’s co-founder and only main stay act for this year’s outing, will play the Comcast Center in Mansfield on Friday, July 30 with fellow headliners Carly Simon and Kelly Clarkson. Also confirmed to play Boston is Tegan & Sara, Sara Bareilles, Missy Higgens, Cat Power, Serena Ryder, Zee Avi and Ann Atomic. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $31.50 to $101 (with a 4-pack ticket special available for $75 each), go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

The traveling all-women’s music festival returns to the spotlight after being massive crowd pleaser during the summers of 1997 to 1999. The groundbreaking tour consisted solely of female solo artists and female-led bands including Christina Aguilera, The Dixie Chicks, Missy Elliot, The Pretenders, Nelly Furtado, Jewel, Queen Latifah, and many more. In its three years, Lilith Fair raised over $10 million for women’s charities throughout North America.

Lilith Fair has also partnered with Reverb, the Maine-based company founded by Guster’s Adam Gardner and his wife Lauren Sullivan, to make the 2010 tour more eco-friendly.
