If anyone can bring the legendary Joni Mitchell back onstage, it’s Brandi Carlile.
The singer-songwriter revealed Wednesday on “The Daily Show” that she and Mitchell will perform at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington, next summer. The announcement comes several months after Mitchell stunned and delighted fans by joining Carlile onstage at this year’s Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island.
Prior to that magical moment, the Canadian American musician hadn’t sung for a live crowd in approximately two decades.
“After Newport, Joni said, ‘I want to do another show.’ She said, ‘I want to play again,'” Carlile told outgoing “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah.
“We got to thinking about it, and we decided on a venue. … It’s one of the most beautiful venues in the world.”
