Joni Mitchell – 1974 Canadian ‘Court and Spark’ Tour Concert Poster
A rare concert poster for Joni Mitchell’s Feb. 9, 1974 concert at Sir Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
This show, with Tom Scott and the L.A. Express, took place just three weeks after the release of Mitchell’s classic album Court and Spark.
The only example we’ve seen of this rare poster. In Near Mint condition, with minor creases to the bottom corners. 17″ x 23″.
A fan review of this show from the Joni Mitchell website:
People were buzzing, saying “Joni’s got an electric band now!” No reserved seating for this show. Finally the doors were opened and a crowd swarmed past the head of the line, pushing their way in. By the time we got inside the only seats left were at the back. As it happened we were recognized by one of the volunteers. He told us there were two seats left empty, front row centre. As the lights dimmed we made our way towards the stage and there were our seats! The LA Express came on immediately to play a warm up set. None of us had heard Court and Spark yet and had no idea what to expect. After a set of cool and funky jazz by Tom Scott and co, Joni came on and played an acoustic set on piano and alternating between two acoustic guitars, changing tunings quickly and chatting candidly between songs, at ease and intimate. After her solo set there was a break and when she came back she was joined by the band, Robben Ford on Guitar, Max Bennet, bass and John Guerin doing a fine job on the drums, lifting the whole concert to a new height. The show closed with “Raised on Robbery” after the electric Piano intro the band kicked in and bright white lights blazed from behind them into the crowd. It was like a happy kick in the head and heart! Always wanted the chance to say thank you for this amazing show. Thank You!
