Joni Mitchell will play her first publicly-announced concert in two decades at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington on June 10th, 2023.

The 78-year-old singer-songwriter made her return to the stage back in August during a surprise appearance at the Newport Folk Festival. However, as Billboard notes, next year’s show at the Gorge will mark the first time fans can purchase a ticket to see Mitchell perform since 2000.

Mitchell will once again be joined by friend and collaborator Brandi Carlile, who was instrumental in orchestrating the surprise performance at Newport.

“‘I want to do another show… I want to play again,'” Carlile recounted Mitchell saying during an appearance on The Daily Show on Wednesday night.

Mitchell’s concert will come as part of Carlile’s “Echoes Through the Canyon,” a two-night event at the Gorge taking place on June 9th and 10th. Carlile will headline night one before leading a backup band for Mitchell on night two.

Additional details, including on-sale ticket information, are still forthcoming. In the meantime, watch Carlile discuss the upcoming concert on The Daily Show below.

Editor’s Note: Joni Mitchell’s Blue ranks at No. 5 on Consequence’s recently updated Top 100 Albums of All-Time list. See what else made the cut here.
