JONI MITCHELL has cancelled her spring tour of Britain and Europe, which was to have included four major gigs in this country - at London Hammersmith Odeon (May 27, 28 and 29) and Glasgow Apollo (31), all of which were completely sold out. These would have been her first appearances in this country since she played Wembley Stadium in 1974.

Ticket-holders are asked to apply for cash refunds. Those purchased from the MAM Organisation should be returned to that office, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope, while those obtained from agencies should be returned to the point of purchase. Promoter Barry Dickins says that he has hopes of re-scheduling Joni's dates for later in the year.

The gigs have officially been cancelled on medical grounds. A spokesman said that Joni collapsed in New York recently, suffering from physical exhaustion after a severe bout of the flu, and she has been advised by doctors not to undertake any touring for several months. He added: "There's a rumour going round that she has broken up with her boy friend John Guerin and, because he is a member of the L.A. Express, this has caused the tour to be called off. But I am here to tell you that this report simply isn't true.
