Buffalo Springfield Plans September Tour
According to Richie Furay, Buffalo Springfield plans an extensive tour this September.
From Spinner by Benjy Eisen:
But original member Richie Furay revealed on Friday that the group has plans for a more extensive tour this fall, beginning in September. Furthermore, he says, all of the shows are being recorded, leaving the possibility of a live album on the table. As for recording new music in the studio, Furay allows that it's anyone's guess -- but even that is a possibility.
That said, Buffalo Springfield's current set -- the one they'll perform at Bonnaroo next weekend -- sticks strictly to the band's popular back catalog, save for a cover of group member Neil Young's 'Rockin' in the Free World' as their encore. It's a back catalog taken from just three albums which, by the way, Furay says will be rereleased on vinyl soon. [A vinyl box set of the group's 3 albums, titled "Buffalo Springfield Complete”]
'We're not trying to recreate or make anything different than we are,' Furay told Spinner in a press conference for Bonnaroo on Friday. 'We are Buffalo Springfield. We're not 'Neil Young and Buffalo Springfield'; we're not 'Stephen Stills and Buffalo Springfield' ... This is who we were and we're just privileged to be here today and to be able to make the same music today as what's in people's hearts and minds.'
"There will be a fall tour -- September, October, November," Furay told Billboard.com. "We have a bunch of cities for the fall that we're looking at right now to just logically put together."
