They paved paradise, and put up a parking lot…
Singer, songwriter, painter, poet, activist and voice of a generation, Joni Mitchell is an essential part of the soundtrack to the twentieth century. She grew up with folk music in the 60s, she railed against injustice in the 70s, she put feelings into song in the 80s and reinvented herself in the 90s.
Joni Mitchell continues to gather accolades, including nine Grammy awards, entry to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Canada’s highest civilian honour, the Companion of the Order of Canada. Meanwhile, the depth and imagination of this heart-on-sleeve songwriter has continued to inspire artists as diverse as Prince, Madonna, James Taylor, Herbie Hancock and Björk.
Backed by an outstanding 12 piece band, Katie Noonan, Ella Hooper, Wendy Matthews, Melinda Schneider and Kristin Berardi unite to express just how much this songwriting legend means to them in Both Sides Now. Look forward to Joni Mitchell's unforgettable songs including 'Big Yellow Taxi', 'Blue', 'Woodstock', 'Circle Game' and 'A Case of You' - all songs that have become part of our lives.
Both Sides Now is a concert not just for Joni fans but for anyone who loves real music, sung from the heart.
