Carlile revealed the news on an episode of The Daily Show. In the wake of this summer’s surprise Mitchell concert at the Newport Folk Festival, Carlile said that Joni told her, “I want to do another show. She said, ‘I want to play again.’”
The pair chose the 27,000-capacity Gorge, which Carlile noted is “one of the most beautiful venues in the world.” Brandi will play the first night, 9 June and Joni and the Joni Jam — line-up to be announced — will headline the second night (10 June).
“I still can’t believe that happened,” Carlile told The Daily Show host Trevor Noah of the performance in the summer. “It was just a few months ago and the fact that it was at Newport Folk Festival, which is such a monumental and historic place. She [Mitchell] always has a plan. She knows what she wants to do even if she doesn’t say it.”
“We thought it was a jam. We didn’t know that she was going to sing all the leads on those songs,” Carlile said of Mitchell’s performance. “She just started singing. We had rehearsed the songs ourselves. And we didn’t know whether we should stop or what we should do, you know, so we just sang with her.”
