Canadian folk-rocker Neil Young will play Toronto’s Massey Hall on May 10-11 as part of his previously announced solo North American tour in support of his latest album, Le Noise.

Tickets, $89.50, $139.50 & $189.50, go on sale Friday (April 15) at Ticketmaster, the Roy Thomson Hall box office, by phone at 1-855-985-5000 or online at livenation.com , masseyhall.com, roythomson.com and ticketmaster.ca

Young’s opening act will be Bert Jansch.

The Massey Hall concerts are also scheduled to be captured on film by director Jonathan Demme, as the final installment in a concert film trilogy, joining 2006’s Neil Young: Heart of Gold and 2008’s Neil Young Trunk Show.

The Toronto-born, Winnipeg-raised Young, who will play both acoustic and electric guitar at the Massey shows, was recently in T.O. where he picked up two Junos for artist of the year and adult alternative album of the year for Le Noise and the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award.

The 65-year-old singer-musician also recently won his second-ever Grammy for best rock song for Angry World, a track off Le Noise, produced by Canadian Daniel Lanois (U2, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Brian Eno, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, The Neville Brothers).
The Massey Hall concerts will take place 40 years after Young’s legendary 1971 solo Massey Hall concert, in which he unveiled many of the songs that would form the body of one of his most celebrated albums, Harvest.

Neil at Massey Hall (May 10 and 11)

Sharry reports:  “Neil is coming to Massey Hall on May 10 and 11. I’m so happy to hear this excellent news! I plan to get tickets for both shows. Bob is just interested in attending one show, so I guess I’ll be going solo on the second night. The dates occur on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, so I’ll have to request permission to leave work early on those nights. Massey Hall is within walking distance of where I work, so that makes things easier.”

On-sale date for the general public is Friday
(April 15) at 10:00 a.m. for both May 10 and 11.

Ticket prices — They range from $104.64 ($89.50 + $15.14 in fees) to
$204.64 ($189.50 + $15.14 in fees).

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.
