   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

June 5, 2011

Visit our main website at: http://www.sh-boommagazine.com

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.”

Elton John and Leon Russell together onstage for BBC Electric Proms in October

September 13, 2010

Sir Elton John is set to appear alongside legendary US singer-songwriter Leon Russell at the BBC Electric Proms in October.

The duo will perform live – at separate pianos – on Thursday, October 28 at London’s Roundhouse. The set will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 2, with highlights from the concert forming the centre piece of A Night In With Sir Elton John on BBC Two on October 30. The “night in” will also include behind-the-scenes footage from the Roundhouse gig and a new documentary about Sir Elton’s life and music.

Sir Elton – who has sold over 250 million records in a career spanning four decades – is expected to play classic tracks from his back catalogue. He will also perform new songs from his forthcoming studio album with Leon Russell, The Union, which will be released by Mercury Records on October 25.

“I’m delighted to be kicking off this year’s BBC Electric Proms,” says Sir Elton, “particularly as I’ll be joined on stage by Leon who is one of my musical heroes. The performance will feature other very special guests and some memorable moments.”

Leon Russell, now 68, collaborated with Sir Elton in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He was also responsible for classic songs such as ‘Delta Lady’ (a huge hit for Joe Cocker in 1969) and The Carpenters’ Grammy-nominated hit ‘Superstar’ in 1971.

The Elton John/Leon Russell album, The Union, features guest appearances by Brian Wilson, Booker T, Don Was and Neil Young. It was produced by T-Bone Burnett and is accompanied by documentary footage shot by filmmaker Cameron Crowe.
