Buffalo Springfield to Reunite at Bridge School Benefit

(Jambands.com) 1960s legends Buffalo Springfield will reunite for two shows at Neil Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit Concert. The group will perform each night of the charity gig, which is scheduled to take place at Mountain View, CA’s Shoreline Amphitheater on October 23 and 24. The band’s lineup will feature classic members Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and Jim Messina. The musicians have not publicly performed together as Buffalo Springfield since 1968.
In addition, each day of the benefit shows will feature a performance by Young’s longtime protégés Pearl Jam. These shows will mark the band’s 20th anniversary. Other benefit highlights include a pairing of Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson, a collaboration between Jackson Browne and David Lindley and T-Bone Burnett’s Speaking Clock Revue featuring Elton John, Leon Russell, Elvis Costello, Ralph Stanley, Neko Case and Jeff Bridges.

Wow, what a great lineup - so much to talk about - T Bone Burnett's group looks very very interesting not to mention the obvious excitement behind a Buffalo Springfield reunion and a collaboration between Merle and Kris! I was lucky enough to be there in 2007 while on a holiday from Australia and it is a great weekend! I'll be envying whoever gets to go!

Anybody want to buy me a ticket? With all due respect to Buffalo Springfield, Lucinda, Leon Russell, Pearl Jam, Jackson Browne, Ralph Stanley, Neko Case, Elvis Costello, and all the rest, they better put Merle and Kris on last because nobody's following them.

Adam,
Back when my wife worked as a consultant for the Bridge School I could have you gotten you near front row.
Should've asked back in the 90's..:)

I would think this would be a great opportunity to offer the show as a pay per view stream on the web. It's a good cause and I think they could get a ton of people to pay say $10 a night to stream it on their computers. I know I would do it.

this is probably the only band that I`d pay big bucks to see together again...
