A tumultuous concert in a tense atmosphere …
She is one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Joni Mitchell is a tall Canadian blonde with soft, piercing blue eyes, a life full of drama and pitfalls, who has succeeded in sublimating them into one of the most fascinating works of all. When she arrived on the Isle of Wight in August 1970, almost everyone was in love with her: she had been filling the biggest rooms for months… Her voice was uniquely clear and powerful. , his guitar and piano playing as fluid as it is complex, his brilliant compositions have already been taken up by the greatest.

But all this does not immunize him against the excesses of the time, and his concert will be disturbed by troublemakers. While she gives her best “singing tour” on stage, we can hear screams in the distance, the noises of brawl between those who do not want to pay to enter the site and the order service. In short, the atmosphere is tense. A weirdo named Yogie Joe, clearly under the influence of psychotropic drugs, even invites himself on stage and tries to take the microphone. He is quickly turned back, but the huge crowd begins to whistle.

… and a turnaround
Faced with such a situation, many artists would have let the situation degenerate, or even abandon the stage. But not Joni Mitchell. On the verge of tears, she explains that she is there to share her music, her emotions, and firmly asks the audience to calm down, before continuing her show. And if she obtains silence, it will then give way to a standing ovation at the end of the concert.
