Buffalo Springfield Tour Scheduled for 2012, Says Spokesperson
Last month, many drove hundreds of miles and waited hours just to see Buffalo Springfield, fresh off a 40-plus-year hiatus, play Bonnaroo. The wait was worth it as Buffalo Springfield — surviving founding members Richie Furay, Stephen Stills, Neil Young plus bassist Rick Rosas and drummer Joe Vitale — played classic tracks ‘For What It’s Worth’ and ‘Mr. Soul’ like they hadn’t skipped a band practice since 1968, the same year their last studio album, ‘Last Time Around,’ was released. But fans waiting to see Buffalo Springfield on the 30-date fall tour hinted by Furay and Stills earlier this year in a Rolling Stone interview, are going to have to wait a little longer.
On Thursday (June 30), Furay posted a message on his Facebook page informing the tour would not kick off until the beginning of next year. “I’m not going to spend a lot time here with details as you speculate among yourselves,” Furay wrote. “There’s nothing to speculate about, the tour has simply been moved.”
Today (July 1), a spokesperson for the band confirmed to Spinner that the tour was, in fact, still a go: “The Buffalo Springfield tour has been scheduled for 2012. Richie, Stephen and Neil remain incredibly excited about the tour. As soon as routing and dates are confirmed, Buffalo Springfield will announce all details to the public.”
The classic rockers reunited last October at Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit Concert. Since that evening, they have played only half a dozen shows together, including their epic Bonnaroo headlining spot that left thousands of people thirsty for more. Don’t believe us? Just check out footage of the band jamming out to ‘Mr. Soul’ from the fest below.
