Today, 18 years ago, an all-star tribute to Joni Mitchell was held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. TNT’s fourth tribute concert series, directed by Ali Gifford, included A-list performers who had an immense respect for Joni Mitchell’s 30-year career. The show was held just on the heels of her new album, “Both Sides Now”. Performances by Mary Chapin Carpenter, Shawn Colvin, Elton John, Wynonna Judd, Diana Krall, James Taylor, Richard Thompson and Cassandra Wilson, accompanied by a full orchestra, adjoined the works of Mitchell in this show hosted by Ashley Judd. Hearts were warmed seeing Joni Mitchell in an opera box to the side of the stage getting overwhelmed by the performances. By the end of the show, Mitchell herself, performed with string orchestra, singing “Both Sides Now’. An edited version of the event was aired on the TNT cable TV network on April 16.
