    Sarah McLachlan told Canada's Globe and Mail that the Lilith Fair tour is finished, dunzo finito and closing shop after a failed attempt to revive it last summer. Dates were canceled left and right and the tour was considered a pretty massive flop. "It's done, and that's okay. It's actually a really good thing," McLachlan said in Calgary on Sunday. "[It's] about learning more from our failures than our successes, and it was a beautiful organic event that happened at a point in time when it was really needed. And bringing the same thing back last year really didn't make any sense, in retrospect, without due diligence being done on how women have changed. Because in 12 years, women have changed a lot. Their expectations have changed, the way they view the world has changed, and that was not taken into consideration, which I blame myself for." McLachlan said she is "excited about looking forward and thinking of carrying forth the ideas from Lilith and maybe doing something new and different."
