Headlining the tour is Lillix, a young Canadian punk-pop quartet with a penchant for '80s covers and TV show themes. After earning modest attention for updating the Romantics' "What I Like About You" (for a WB series of the same name), the group agreed to take on the Go-Go's' "This Town," for the MTV show, Rich Girls. Clearly eying mainstream acceptance, this group employed such fingers-on-the-pulse hitmakers as the Matrix and Linda Perry for its Maverick Records debut album, Falling Uphill.
