Buffalo Springfield – the short-lived group that served as a springboard for the careers of Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and Jim Messina – have postponed their 30-date US tour until early in 2012.

   The band originally planned to launch the tour this autumn, following a highly successful six-date reunion tour in early June. It was the first time the band had toured together since 1968.

Buffalo Springfield tour for first time since 1968

Buffalo Springfield – the short-lived group that served as a springboard for the careers of Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and Jim Messina – are reuniting for a six-date California tour in June, Neil Young has announced.

   It will be the first time the band has toured since 1968.

   Along with surviving members Neil Young (65), Stephen Stills (66) and Richie Furay (66), the 2011 line-up will include Young’s longtime bassist Rick Rosas and Crosby, Stills and Nash drummer Joe Vitale. Rosas will take the place of Bruce Palmer (who died in October 2004), while Vitale will sit in for drummer Dewey Martin (who died in January 2009).

   Young says the tour will serve as a warm-up for the band’s set at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee on June 11.

Formed in Los Angeles in April 1966, Buffalo Springfield are best known for the song ‘For What It’s Worth’. But their impact was far greater than one classic song. Although the group only survived for 25 months and released just three albums, their influence on folk-rock, country-rock and the ‘West Coast sound’ of the 1970s was almost as great as that of The Byrds.

   “It’s hard to believe 42 years have passed since we played together as the Buffalo Springfield,” says Richie Furay. “Over the years, music never stopped flowing from each of us, and it’s come full circle, if you will. And now, we get to share our hearts with you again.”
