I think the full band for this was Joni, Larry Klein, Vinnie Colaiuta on drums, Mike landau on guitar and Russell Ferrante on keys. I do remember the moment below described by Gary when She performed the solo 'Case of You' on Zither (or dulcimer?). You could have heard a pin drop at the end. 'Wild Things Run Fast' wasn't one of my favourite of her records but this was a super gig and, as it appears to be turning out, a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I attended this concert as a 17 year old with my pal Julian and my brother Eric. We all thoroughly enjoyed the gig and I was completely starstruck by Joni for years afterward - in fact I've never stopped being so. If she ever tours these parts again I would love to see her perform again.

I have been a longtime fan of joni mitchell's music so obviously got a ticket for this concert when she came to England. My husband got the tickets and as we took our seats at the NEC we were totally shocked to find we were in the front row. So had a fantastic view and really enjoyed the concert. The band were very good and she had her husband Larry Klein playing bass with them. She was promoting her then new album Wild things run free which I had already bought. I have not seen joni in concert since but will always remember this concert and hope one day she might do some more concerts in the Uk. Thanks for all the great music and wish you the best for the future.
