Brandi Carlile will pay tributes to Joni Mitchell at the Walt Disney Concert. Brandi Carlile will perform Joni Mitchell’s ‘Blue’ at the concert.
“Blue might very well be the best album ever made,” Carlile wrote in an Instagram post announcing the performance. “I feel the need to play this masterpiece in its entirety so that I can honor Joni Mitchell. Further, the way this album brought me into myself, but also so that I can hear it live too!”

Blue might very well be the best album ever made. I feel the need to play this masterpiece in its entirety so that I can honor Joni Mitchell and the way this album brought me into myself, but also so that I can hear it live too! My soul will be listening alongside yours. If Joni is right and “songs are like tattoos”, then these songs are an indelible part of our collective story and coming of age. “Part of you pours out of me in these lines from time to time”. Let’s do Blue. Hearts on sleeves and voices raised. Let’s do this one for Joni. xobc #jonimitchell #songsareliketattoos ? info: Bramily Presale begins Wed, April 10 at 10a PT.

Brandi Carlile featured in “Joni 75,” the Music Center’s birthday bash of the icon at L.A.’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in November. With Kris Kristofferson by her side she delved into the loyalty of “A Case of You” (from “Blue”) with a bucolic soprano reminiscent of Mitchell’s early sound.
Further, Mitchell seems to post a mutual recognition. Moreover, Carlile won Grammys in February for Americana album “By the Way, I Forgive You.” Also for American roots act and American roots song (both for “The Joke”), she accomplished several serious bragging rights.
Whose life is this? Carlile asked of her time with Mitchell, who has kept a low profile in last years as she has revived from health problems. “I’m not giving it back.”
Tickets for “Songs Are Like Tattoos” go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. Pacific.
