The Joni 75 experience
Each of the two concerts in 2018 was around two and a half hours long. Joni Mitchell herself was not present on stage because of health-related issues, but many of her friends were there along with her own original artwork and many, many photos. Elton John and Peter Gabriel, although not able to be present, gave video messages. There were audio clips from past interviews. Seal performed "Both Sides Now," Chaka Kahn covered "Help Me," and other artists performed stirring musical tributes.
Graham Nash sang a song he wrote for Joni Mitchell 50 years ago when they were romantically involved. James Taylor played "River" and "Woodstock" on the guitar, and everyone sang "Big Yellow Taxi" for the group finale.
