*Queen Latifah is the latest artist to be added to the all-female Lilith Fair tour, joining a diverse lineup that includes Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and Rihanna.

The rapper/singer/actress – in theaters this weekend with “Just Wright” opposite Common, is making a return visit to the travelling festival after performing in the first Lilith Fair in 1997.

“Queen Latifah’s spirited performances on the original Lilith Fair are still some of the most memorable,” said event co-founder Marty Diamond. “She has had a remarkable career over the past 11 years, from music, to acting to now film production. She is a role model and inspiration to many, and we are thrilled that she is taking the time from her hectic schedule to rejoin the tour.”

The tour–which kicks off June 27 in Calgary, Alberta–runs through more than 35 cities this summer, wrapping in mid-August with a show in Dallas (8/16). The lineup will change from stop to stop as the trek moves across North America, with only Lilith founder Sarah McLachlan appearing at every date on the tour’s calendar.

Latifah will appear on two dates, in Las Vegas and Detroit. Other acts on the bill include Anjulie, Corinne Bailey Rae, Janelle Monae, Nneka and Norah Jones.
