Buffalo Springfield Reunion Tour This Fall?!

Fans React to News of David Crosby "confirming" Buffalo Springfield Reunion Tour

Much as predicted, it looks like there just might be a Buffalo Springfield Reunion Tour after all. Except maybe... (Ed. - insert emoticon here so that irony impaired readers won't miss the wink, wink, nudge, nudge.)

Rolling Stone has an "exclusive" report that David Crosby is "confirming" Buffalo Springfield Reunion Tour this Fall.

RS reporter Patrick Doyle writes:
“I think he is excited,” Crosby says of CSN bandmate Stephen Stills. “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.”

Crosby continues, “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.”

Can't say we see anything there that sounds like a "confirmation"? Yet, immediately Doyle writes:
Furay’s manager David Spero tells Rolling Stone, “There certainly are discussions to that effect.”

So Crosby "confirms" a tour and Furay’s manager says "discussions"?! Hmmm. Not sure how "discussions" equates to "confirmation".

We think the news may be premature, especially as the interview continues with Crosby doing some more wishful thinking.
Crosby: “I wish I could throw it in with the Byrds,” he says, referring to his old band. “That would be my dream, because everybody and their uncle would come to see the Byrds and Buffalo Springfield. But that’s not going to happen.”

This Byrds and Buffalo Springfield tour speculation has been going on since virtually the moment the band walked offstage at the Bridge concert last year.

Last month, we conducted a poll on 2011 Tour with either Buffalo Springfield or Crazy Horse?

The poll results were overwhelming in favor of a Crazy Horse tour.

Now, what this means -- in the perverse Neil universe -- is that we'll have a Buffalo Springfield tour because -- as we all know -- Neil Young never, ever listens to his fan base.

Therefore, because fans appeared to want a Crazy Horse tour, Neil threw a curve ball and will tour with Buffalo Springfield -- which was what Neil fans wanted all along. Right. And if you followed that convoluted circular logic, well then we'll start a campaign to have "Time Fades Away" NOT be released. Maybe that'll work...

After the triumphant reunion of The Buffalo Springfield at the 2010 Bridge School Benefit Concerts, rumors have also been swirling about a possible Buffalo Springfield Reunion Tour. Ritchie Furay has discussed it. The Los Angeles Times has stoked the flames and Rolling Stone magazine even went through the motions of laying out opening band possibilities.

So how about you? What's your preference on Neil Young's 2011 tour plans?

You guys voting for Crazy Horse are a little crazy horse yourself! Everyone wants a Buffalo Springfield reunion. I don't care what the numbers say, Crazy Horse wouldn't cut it. With Ben gone, it's very interesting that this is the direction Neil may be taking soon. But bringing out Crazy Horse as the next path in the wake of Ben's passing would be a very dull move.

okay NONE of these guys are kids anymore, but surely Stills could maybe manage a short CSN tour in the spring or summertime before the Springfield tour...Neil too for that matter, with or without the Horse...I mean really what do these guys (including Billy Ralph and Poncho) do when they're not working?

T- I was a 30 percenter when you asked for the previous vote for an uncoming tour. Crazy Horse would be Great, but Neil said 'they gotta be together' if he's gonna do anything with them. I don't thing they is together.

So the news of a Buffalo Springfield Tour is the best possible scenario now. Say it again people, BUFFALO SPRINGFILED TOUR! Even the Electric band is now short one major player. Neil stated 70% of his show included Ben's input. The Springfield tour will rejuvinate the whole thing. It's been so long it'll all be brand new. I would not count out some new material from any of them. If Stills voice can last it'll be great. The only deal is venues and tickets, cause if they play theatres it's gonna be expensive and difficult to get a seat. But that'd be the best places to do it.

OK, so who doesn't love Crazy Horse? Any Neil Ypung fan worth their salt loves Crazy Horse, & would want to see them any time they tour with Neil. That is the point, Neil has toured with Crazy Horse many, many times, & its always a special event but a Buffalo Springfield tour? Now THAT is something that would really be special for many reasons. Another tour with Crazy Horse is just that. A tour with Buffalo Springfield would be the dream of a lifetime.

I recall being in the car when my dad dropped my older brother off to see The Buffalo Springfiled, Cleveland 1968.
I was too young then to go. Now I am too old to miss it..I cannot wait. I plan to bring my teenage son, a Neil fan himself. As well.
