Buffalo Springfield Reunion Tour In The Works

Buffalo Springfield may be coming to a venue near you later this year. At least that’s what David Crosby says.

Crosby recently told Rolling Stone that his Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young bandmates Neil Young and Stephen Stills plan to team up with Richie Furay for a tour this fall.

In October the surviving members of Buffalo Springfield performed together publicly for the first time in 42 years with two nights at Bridge School Benefit in Mountain View, Calif.

Buffalo Springfield was formed in 1966 and broke up less than three years later. Original bassist Bruce Palmer died in 2004 and drummer Dewey Martin died in 2009.

The Bridge School Benefit shows featured Young, Stills and Furay along with drummer Joe Vitale and Young’s longtime bassist Rick Rosas.

“I think he is excited,” Crosby told Rolling Stone about Stills and the prospect of more Buffalo Springfield shows. “And I’ve got to tell you, I didn’t get to see them live, but I watched clips and Richie [Furay] – I got to tell you man, he is so happy onstage and is such a joyful energy.

“He really sparked that thing, and I think it was a very pleasant experience for Neil and Stephen both. I know they’re going to go out for at least some dates in the fall. Personally, I’d like to go watch. They’re one of my favorite bands.”

Furay’s manager David Spero gave Rolling Stone a vague, but promising comment about the possibility of a fall tour.

“There certainly are discussions to that effect,” Spero said.

Crosby also told the magazine he’d like to hit the road on a reunion tour of his own with The Byrds. He added that it won’t happen because frontman Roger McGuinn isn’t interested in the idea.
