Buffalo Springfield Press Release

Long Awaited Buffalo Springfield Tour Kicks Off in June With Six California Dates and an Appearance at Bonnaroo

Tour Features Original Members Neil Young, Stephen Stills, and Richie Furay, and Special Guest Gillian Welch as Opening Act

Press Release Source: Buffalo Springfield On Tuesday March 29, 2011, 10:23 pm EDT

LOS ANGELES, March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The legendary Buffalo Springfield will launch a reunion tour this June with six dates in California and an appearance at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee.  Neil Young, Stephen Stills, and Richie Furay form the triumvirate of singer-songwriter-guitarists that made Buffalo Springfield one of the most influential bands in rock and roll.  Tickets go on sale tomorrow.

The itinerary kicks off with two dates at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA on June 1 and 2.  Also on the schedule are pairs of concerts at Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theater (June 4-5), and the Santa Barbara Bowl (June 7-8)—all of the California dates feature alt-country/folk singer-songwriter Gillian Welch as opener.  On Saturday June 11, Buffalo Springfield plays the world renowned Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN, joining other headliners including Arcade Fire, My Morning Jacket, Eminem, and the Black Keys.  Additional dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

Rounding out the Buffalo Springfield line-up are Young’s longtime bassist Rick Rosas—filling in for the late Bruce Palmer—and Crosby, Stills & Nash drummer Joe Vitale sitting in for the late Dewey Martin.

Buffalo Springfield played together in concert—to great acclaim—in October 2010 at Neil and Pegi Young’s Bridge School Benefit in Northern California.

The reunion marked the first live performances from the group since 1968. Bay Area music journalist Jim Harrington wrote that their set, “featured gorgeous harmonies, fine musicianship…and enough stellar songs to make one understand why the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.”  Music pundit Bob Lefsetz wrote, “the guitar interplay…is the essence of music, the interplay amongst musicians speaking to each other and ultimately to us through their instruments.”

“It’s hard to believe 42 years have passed since we played together as the Buffalo Springfield,” says Richie Furay.   “Over the years, music never stopped flowing from each of us, and it’s come ‘full circle,’ if you will.  And now, we get to share our hearts with you again—yes, Buffalo Springfield again!”

Buffalo Springfield first formed in 1966, when its original members converged in Los Angeles.  Stills and Furay had previously played together with the Au Go Go singers, and crossed paths with Young on a tour through Canada in 1965.  Driving down Sunset Boulevard a year later, they recognized a hearse with Ontario plates—Young was behind the wheel, Palmer his passenger.  They began playing together, and Buffalo Springfield was born.  They released three albums—and classic songs including “Mr. Soul,” “Rock and Roll Woman,” “Nowadays Clancy Can’t Even Sing,” “For What It’s Worth (Stop, Hey, What’s That Sound),” “Bluebird,” and “Go and Say Goodbye”—creating  a sound that has never waned in influence.

Crosby&Nash: Another Stoney Evening

David Crosby and Graham Nash have launched their own record label, Blue
Castle Records, with the first-ever digital edition of the live album

Another Stoney Evening

recorded forty years ago, in 1971 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in
Los Angeles.

“This album represents the very beginning of our musical relationship as
a duo,” says Nash. “Whatever David and I do well together, it’s
wonderful that we’re still doing it well. For the upcoming tour, with a
rock ‘n roll band, we’ve gotten fantastic advance response. It’s
exciting to be bringing this great new show to people.”

Tour Dates continue Neil’s solo Twisted Road/Le Noise tour

BURBANK, CA — (Marketwire) — 03/07/11 — Legendary rocker Neil Young will
embark on a solo tour that will kick off on April 15th in Durham, NC, and

pair of nights at Boston’s Wang Center and two shows at the prestigious and
intimate Avery Fisher Hall in NYC’s Lincoln Center, will cover songs from
his current acclaimed album, Le Noise as well as classic tracks performed in
both electric and acoustic settings. Young recently won his second-ever
Grammy Award for “Best Rock Song” for “Angry World” — a track off Le Noise,
which was also nominated for “Best Rock Album.”

The eight-song Le Noise, among Young’s most critically-embraced albums, is a
collaboration between the acclaimed rock icon and musician, songwriter, and
multiple Grammy Award-winning producer Daniel Lanois, known for his work
with U2, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Brian Eno, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson,
The Neville Brothers and many others. Le Noise was released by Reprise
Records on September 28th, 2010.
