How cool is THAT Thrasher!!!

I hope the guys have a fantastic time, and really enjoy the show and tour(??).

I really hope I get the chance to see it for myself - up until last year, it was an impossible dream.

Keep on rockin', boys, it's going to be a great year!

(P.S. Archives Guy - if you're there, any chance of this reaching the UK/Scotland? Haha ;-))

Seconded... what are the chances of a UK/European tour...?

What a delightful surprise on top of an already awesome Bonnaroo lineup! Bonnaroo X truly will be the best Bonnaroo yet. Can't wait to get my tickets.

Now, the question is -- do we think the Springfield will go electric now that the acoustic-only rules of the Bridge School have been lifted? Or do you think that will just add conflict to an already delicate reunion? I'd love to see them plug in at Bonnaroo for a REAL Buffalo Springfield reunion! Bonnaroo's roots are as a jam-band festival after all -- Bluebird, anyone?

perhaps the CSN(Y) format would work--acoustic start, electric all acoustic (with rhythm section) show wouldn't be so bad--easier on the ears for one thing...

First the Archives, now Grammy Awards and Buffalo Springfield tours - this is definately unchartered territory.

Maybe we skipped the apocalypse all together and jumped straight to the new millenium. Either way it's ok. Long Live Neil Young.

Well… goes to show that Neil DOES listen… to Richie.

Fantastic news! Hooray for the 30%!

Will they go electric and let us forget the Electric Band? Really hope Archives G. can tell us pretty soon if they plan to come to Europe...

What about a new album?
Remastered original albums?

Neil said he comes close to Mavis.... at the Grammys.
Well, I tell him I doubt he ever will come close to her and her family with the Buffalo Spingfield...
For me this is the definitive version of this beautiful Stephen Stills / BS song:

The Staple Singers - For What It's Worth

Eat a peach if you agree or don't agree... hummm

Because Sound Matters

Great news from a great artist,let's face the fact,there is no use in denying Neil's a g-r-e-a-t artist!

Seems like the stars are moving into alignment...check out this possible scenario. Bonnaroo is June 9-12 and I'd assume Buffalo Springfield plays over the weekend. Two weekends later, Wilco has the second Solid Sound Festival in North Adams, MA.

The tour starts off at Bonnaroo to universal raves and acclaim. The band begins the East Coast portion with a few shows down South, then starts to work their way north. Some big venues, some smaller...maybe even a stealth club show or two on the way. That gets them to New England around June 22 or so, where they do a couple shows and then visit Solid Sound.

Wilco has already said they'll be headlining two shows there, so that would be the Saturday and Sunday shows on the large stage. Mavis Staples comes back for a triumphant return ("...I tell you Tweedy, you and I have really done something now, haven't we" are her first words when she hits the stage)and she later joins the Springfield for the greatest version of For What It's Worth in the history of the world...and then encores with The Weight. With tears streaming down his face, Stephen Stills hugs Mavis and Neil while Jeff Tweedy and the band look on in awe. Rolling Stone names this the best music moment of 2011. Buffalo Springfield go on to play Madison Square Garden (three shows) to close out the East Cost portion and each night has amazing guests show up, including Patti Smith, Sonic Youth, Elton John and Yoko Ono.

Part two of the tour goes back West and starts with a surprise show at Humphreys by the Bay in San Diego. Actually there are two shows, with a special matinee for sailors and family stationed at the Naval Station across the harbor. Heading north, there's another stealth show at the Malibu Inn ("sure are lots of memories in this old place" says a smiling Neil as they take the stage), and there's a free show on the Santa Monica Pier which ties up traffic on the PCH twenty miles in both directions.

Next up is San Fran where Neil heads right to North Beach and the newly reopened Mabuhay Gardens for the first time in many years for yet another stealth show. Devo shows up for the encore which is a Mr Soul/Whip It medley that goes on for twenty minutes. By this point, Rolling Stone is calling this "possibly the most memorable and unique tour of the 21st century". They play The Warfield and a free show in Golden Gate Park. Then up to Portland where Sleater Kinney plays their first show in five years as the opening act.

After a break to enjoy some rest, the tour continues into the fall. Criss crossing the USA, they hit Farm Aid and then finish the tour where they started at Bridge School shows in late October. They take a break through the holidays, then go to Europe with the rested and ready Crazy Horse for a triumphant double bill tour, then come back home for Springfield and The Horse 2012 in America Tour.

Dear Mr. Henry, thanks for the future. Do you think they will play "Midnight on the Bay" on this tour? The song is now on my old record player. It was written in a hotel at Coconut Grove and I think it really would be cool if they performed it with Elton John and Yoko Ono. BSM

Mr H - we may say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one...


At 2/16/2011 02:19:00 PM, Blogger Dan1 said...

I wonder if in fact Neil's decision to go Springfield over the Horse was due in part to the poll ... since fan's voted overwhelmingly for the Horse it would seem clear that couldn't be the way Neil would choose to go ... I say that lovingly since over and over again Neil's decisions in retrospect seem to have been good ones and bottom line is when he's pursuing his muse the song choice / band choice becomes almost a backdrop for a Neil blowing you away experience ... in this case the time has finally come for Sprinfield again and it couldn't be too soon!

Good God! The Buffalo rock'n'it out! No pressure here at all but you boys have some new stuff?

C'mon, Stephen, you got something for Mother Nature, don't you?

See ya'll in Tennessee.

At 2/16/2011 05:03:00 PM, Blogger asg said...

@ Mr. Henry--ya left out the part about a LIVE album (doesn't NEIL record everything?)If the re-united Hollies can play TEACH YOUR CHILDREN--and they did--then BS could play CHANGE PARTNERS (for the irony perhaps) or ROUND AND ROUND or any of Richie's Poco songs...

At 2/16/2011 05:31:00 PM, Anonymous Mother Nature on the Buffalo said...

Well, ASG, one would think that after all these years -- the heartbreak, the cancers, the loss of friends, the ups, the downs, the wives, the kids -- they'd have something new.

Have you seen Steve's wife? I don't know what Ritchie's wife looks like, but hell. You stick it out with any of these boys and man, you're a SAINT!)

If what they survived all these years ain't a love song ready to happen, I don't know what is...

Steve & Ritchie are balladeers. They rock and let it roll. They're the romancing kind. Stuff like that just pours out of people like them.

I know they can do it. We know frickin Stephen Stills can pull of the world's greatest love song.

His best work has always been ahead of him. He just doesn't know it.

Proof that wishes do come true, because I've been wishing extra hard for this ever since their appearance at last year's Bridge School Benefit.

And holy tinnitus, Batman - what a lineup! Besides the Springfield, we have Mumford & Sons, Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, Gregg Allman, Dr. John and the Original Meters . . .

I'm thinking I should ask for THIS for my graduation present. ;-)

At 2/17/2011 07:07:00 AM, Blogger asg said...

@ Mother Nature--no artist should have to keep taking a JOURNEY THROUGH THE PAST unless they want to--new songs would be nice, and it's great when they happen...but the guys will be under a fair amount of pressure as it is, *I* don't wanna add to it...

At 2/17/2011 11:33:00 PM, Blogger Skillit said...

They should play the Hollywood Bowl or Long Beach Arean if they play LA. How about May 5th?

At 2/18/2011 12:30:00 AM, Anonymous Mother Nature Steamrolling the Buffalo said...

@ASG -- you know all she's got to do is boot his ass out the door and I'm almost sure Stephen will be begging her to take him in by writing a few half a dozen songs or more.

Women have that special effect on men, ya know? Afterall, it was our female persuasion serving as the muse for men for centuries.

All it takes is a few nights sleeping in the car and I bet he would come up with something.

Got to get them back out here on the West Coast again. The October shows were such a great tease. Now I can't wait to see them with their electrics again. Long live the Buffalo Springfield!!!!
