This concert was one of the most memorable and beautiful I have ever attended in my life. I knew all songs of Joni and used to listen at her LPs for hours. I convinced a couple of friends to drive to Milan from Turin and even if they had barely known her name, everybody was charmed and loved it. I will never forget the shy mood she stepped up on stage in her beautiful dress, her blond hair shining over. Then her guitar started playing magic chords.Elegance, beauty and true art. The band was pretty good, despite the Metheny-Pastorious era had ended. I recall that the crowd incidents outside were producing some noise and for few minutes the concert was in danger. Suddenly, Joni missed the words of a song; distracted and possibly worried, but she professionally carried on. The last song after the audience pulled her back on stage was "I heard it through the grapevine". She introduced it saying: "this is a Marving Gaye tune". What a marvellous jazzy version she performed. You can find it in the bootlegs of that tour. Unforgettable. 27 years later I still keep the poster of the concert in my studio  [ed.]  [ed.]  [ed.]

Unforgettable concert. Joni played with a band including her husband Larry on bass, Michael Randal on guitar, Vasco Ferrante on keyboards and the great Vinnie Colaiuta on drums. Fans were rioting outside of the tent-theatre, trying to get in despite the theatre being already full. The police shot tear-gas which eventually made its way into the theatre. Public started booing at the cops. Joni left the stage to get informed of what was going on and then came back in reassuring the public that everything had calmed down. The public litteraly carpeted the stage with flowers at concert end, thanking Joni with a long standing ovation.  [ed.]
