Joni Mitchell, the iconic singer-songwriter, has recently made a thrilling announcement that has music enthusiasts buzzing with excitement. The songstress is set to grace the stage at the renowned Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 19, in what is being billed as Joni Mitchell and the Joni Jam.
This concert marks a significant moment as it is only Mitchell’s second headlining performance in the past two decades.
Tickets for this eagerly anticipated event will be available through a presale starting on January 31, followed by a regular sale commencing on February 2. Fans are urged to mark their calendars and secure their seats for a night that promises to be a musical extravaganza.
Mitchell’s journey back to the spotlight has been nothing short of triumphant. In 2015, she faced a formidable challenge with a brain aneurysm, which necessitated her to re-learn fundamental abilities such as walking, talking, and singing. Undeterred by the hurdles, Mitchell has been steadily making her way back into the music scene.
A notable milestone in her comeback was a surprise appearance at the Newport Folk Festival in 2022. At the festival, she graced the stage and delivered a soul-stirring performance of several songs. The magic of that moment was captured and immortalized in the form of the live album titled “Joni Mitchell at Newport.”

The Gorge Amphitheater in Quincy, Washington, witnessed another historic moment in June 2023 when Mitchell headlined a ticketed concert – her first since 2002. The event was a star-studded affair, featuring collaborations with acclaimed musicians like Brandi Carlile, Annie Lennox, Sarah McLachlan, and more. Reflecting on Mitchell’s journey, Carlile, one of the collaborators, expressed her awe at the Gorge concert.
“[I’ve] watched one of the most miraculous things I’ve seen in my life,” Carlile shared at the Gorge, “and now you get to see it.”
As Mitchell prepares for the upcoming Hollywood Bowl concert, Brandi Carlile is confirmed as the first guest to join her on stage. The anticipation is palpable, and fans can expect an unforgettable night filled with musical prowess and camaraderie.
Adding to the excitement, Mitchell is set to make history on February 4 by gracing the Grammy stage for the first time ever. Her nomination in the Best Folk Album category for “Joni Mitchell at Newport” adds another layer of significance to her already illustrious career.
Joni Mitchell’s news about the Hollywood Bowl concert has made fans super excited. Her journey from overcoming health challenges to performing on big stages again shows how strong she is and how much her music means to people. Everyone is looking forward to October 19 for a night that will celebrate Joni Mitchell’s lasting impact on the music world.
