Buffalo Springfield Will Tour Extensively in the Fall of 2011
Buffalo Springfield, who are currently out on the road for a brief reunion jaunt, will continue their road show with a more extensive tour in the fall. Singer-guitarist Richie Furay confirmed the news in a new interview.
Furay says that no dates have been set, but the band is definitely going to embark on a lengthier trek in the autumn. "There will be a fall tour -- September, October, November," Furay tells Billboard.com. "We have a bunch of cities for the fall that we're looking at right now to just logically put together."
Buffalo Springfield's lineup is comprised of surviving members Furay, Steven Stills and Neil Young, as well as Crosby, Stills & Nash drummer Joe Vitale and Young's bassist Rick Rosas. They recently kicked off of a series of California shows, and will play the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tenn., on June 11.
In addition, Furay says that Buffalo Springfield is recording all of their shows for a possible live album, and even says there's potential for new material from the legendary folk-rock outfit. "I would think as we're projecting and looking towards the fall, doing another tour, certainly new songs, collaborations . . . it's all possible," explains Furay.
While it's not certain if any new songs will surface, the band is set to release a vinyl box set of their three albums called 'Buffalo Springfield Complete' in the near future.
