Last year at Pegi and Neil Young‘s annual Bridge School Benefit we witnessed the reformation of Buffalo Springfield live on stage. The success of that reunion has forged an understanding with original members, Richie Furay, Stephen Stills and Neil Young to take the act on the road. (There will be an extensive fall four-month tour, as I set my radar screen for concerts in my market.). The results of the sound and co-operation are amazingly fresh in sharp contrast to the time that has passed since Buffalo Springfield once existed 43 years ago in 1968. There is something to be said for the continuity of the music of the heart when artists re-establish the foundation of a muse.
Rolling Stone Magazine is serving as a definitive source for information about the Buffalo Springfield reunion and related tour. The publication is providing well written, albeit exciting coverage about this seminal rock and roll band. I refer you to the Buffalo Springfield Launch First Tour in 43 Years article written by David Fricke. From there you can link back to the Bridge School coverage and the February 10th announcement about Buffalo Springfield’s first 11 concert dates.
