Buffalo Springfield alumni including Canadian legendary singer/songwriter Neil Young have confirmed they will tour in the fall after completing a handful of California gigs this month in preparation for playing Bonnaroo Music Festival.

The news was confirmed yesterday by bandmember Richie Furay who revealed the band will hit the road in September.

“There will be a fall tour — September, October, November,” Furay told Billboard.com. “We have a bunch of cities for the fall that we’re looking at right now to just logically put together.”

Surviving Springfield members Furay, Young, and Young’s Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young bandmate Stephen Stills reunited for the 1st time in 42 years to play Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit last October.

The members enjoyed it so much, they got together this again this summer, and kicked off their pre-Bonnaroo warm up appearance with 2 shows at the Fox Theatre in Oakland, CA on June 1 & 2 (6/1/11 – 6/2/11).

The “For What It’s Worth” hitmakers will play Los Angeles on June 4 & 5 as well as Santa Barbara on June 7 & 8 before performing at Bonnaroo on June 11.

Along with a full set list a Springfield songs, the band has been encoring with Young’s 1989 anthem “Rocking in the Free World.”

No word on what U.S. or Canadian stops Buffalo Springfield might make on the fall tour. A vinyl box set of the group’s 3 albums, titled “Buffalo Springfield Complete” will be released soon.

Did you know? A full Buffalo Springfield reunion is no longer a possibility due to the October 2004 death of bassist Bruce Palmer, and the January 2009 death of drummer Dewey Martin. Along with Neil Young, Palmer and Martin were Canadians.
