Published Sep 14, 20102010 is proving to be a great year for Neil Young fans. Not only did the legendary rocker get a tribute at the Olympics, but he also embarked upon a Canada-heavy tour and recorded a new album with Daniel Lanois. Before the year ends, he'll top it all off by reuniting his long absent band, Buffalo Springfield.
Buffalo Springfield, which also feature Stephen Stills and Richie Furay, have not performed for 42 years. They will reunite in Mountain View, CA on October 23 and 24 as part of Young's annual Bridge School Benefit. The annual charitable event brings a variety of artists together to benefit the Bridge School, an organization that helps children with severe physical and mental disabilities.
Along with the reunited rockers, Pearl Jam, Elvis Costello, Grizzly Bear, Modest Mouse and many others are scheduled to perform at the event. While most of us will probably miss out on the concert, there is a good chance that the performances will be available on a charitable compilation at some point in the near future.
