Bridge School Benefit Line-up

25th bridge school benefit

UPDATE: video trailer – The lineup for Neil Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit Concert has been announced. And it’s a mammoth bill in celebration of the concert’s silver anniversary, which takes place at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, Oct. 22-23.

Young will be joined by Arcade Fire, Eddie Vedder, Dave Matthews, Mumford and Sons, Beck and Los Invisibles featuring Carlos Santana for the weekend festivities.

Other artists listed on concert’s official site include jazz queen Diana Krall (Saturday), Tony Bennett (Sunday) and Foo Fighters (Sunday). Yes, it seems the stars are all turning out for the cause closest to Young’s heart.

Check out the clip promoting the 2011 Bridge School Benefit Concert below and get hyped on the weekend, which raises money for the special school Young and wife Pegi started back in 1986 to help their son Ben. Heavy hitters like Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Crosby, Stills, Nash were on hand to kick off the inaugural concert, which has become a staple on the calendar for music lovers (with the exception of 1987 when the benefit was canceled).

Tickets go on sale Sept. 16 via Live Nation, with proceeds going towards assisting children with disabilities and communication needs.

UPDATE:  From Buffalo Springfield Postpone Reunion Tour Again | Rolling Stone Music By Andy Greene:

“This delay happened for a multitude of reasons,” Richie Furay’s manager David Spero tells Rolling Stone. “The plan is still to tour next year. There’s not a timeline at this point. Buffalo Springfield is at the top of Neil’s list or priorities. It’s just a matter of finding a time that works for everybody.”

“I’m writing a book, don’t mess with the muse!”

“I’m writing a book, I wanna be alone.”

 

 

Buffalo Springfield Tour Cancelled

i.e.:  BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD:  On Indefinite Hold 8/30/2011

Despite earlier reports, Buffalo Springfield will not be hitting the road early next year after canceling plans to tour this fall. And Stephen Stills says they probably won’t tour for a while. He tells us, “Neil [Young] started a book and said, ‘Don’t mess with the muse, man.'” Stills adds that he’ll probably tour next summer with Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Buffalo Springfield reunited in 2010 for Neil Young’s annual Bridge School benefit and then played seven shows this past June — six in California and the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee. CSN was scheduled to play shows at New York’s Beacon Theatre tonight and tomorrow, but will perform only tomorrow night, as tonight’s show has been pushed to November 6th with a second show to be announced.

They’ll also make up last Saturday’s canceled benefit on Long Island, New York later this week. Stills will tour this fall with Young’s wife, Pegi Young, as his opening act. David Crosby and Graham Nash will tour Europe this fall. http://www.wmgk.com/music/news/story.aspx?ID=1530078

IMHO, ED2: they talk to much, that’s what might shy others off.

Buffalo Springfield co-founder Richie Furay is back to the future + Feb. 2012 tour

With old band and new, Buffalo Springfield co-founder Richie Furay is back to the future
By Jeremy P. Meyer
The Denver Post, Posted: 07/16/2011 01:00:00 AM MDT

Musician Richie Furay rehearsing with his Richie Furay Band at Calvary Chapel in Broomfield on Friday July 8, 2011. Furay will be reuniting with former band mates with Buffalo Springfield next year.

Richie Furay could be the forgotten rock-‘n’- roll pioneer.

The 67-year-old Broomfield pastor has roots deep in the annals of rock music — he is the co-founder of the seminal 1960s band Buffalo Springfield and is regarded as an architect of a genre that dominated the radio in the early 1970s.

But aside from rock historians and music geeks, few people know anything about Furay, whose own band has trouble booking shows in Colorado.

Inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, Furay doesn’t like to play up his accolades.

“Put me on the river, put me on the golf course, put me on the stage — I’m having fun,” he said recently, sitting in the office of his small church.

Furay’s relative anonymity is already changing, thanks to the reunion of Buffalo Springfield, the group he formed in 1966 with Stephen Stills, Neil Young and Bruce Palmer.

Although Buffalo Springfield disbanded after two years and three albums, critics for decades have heralded the group for its four-part harmonies and instrumental prowess, saying the band had the makings to become the American Beatles.

But next year, fans across the U.S. will be able to see Furay when Buffalo Springfield embarks in February on a cross-country tour.
