Buffalo Springfield Postpone Tour

Eat A Peach, Part Deux?

By , Contributor

Ever since Buffalo Springfield returned to the stage on June 1 at Oakland, California's Fox Theater for their first show in 43 years, then announced a full-blown 30-date reunion tour this fall, there has been much speculation whether Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay would really go through with it. Mostly Neil Young. Who among the Neil watchers will ever forget when the iconic musician exited his 1976 tour with Stephen Still and informed the guitarist by telegram: "Dear Stephen: Funny how some things that start spontaneously end that way. Eat a peach, Neil."

Well, we can't say for certain that "peaches" are on the menu, just that the tour isn't going to occur as planned if Richie Furay is to be believed. Then why shouldn't he, after all he is a man of the cloth. The guitarist-cum-pastor posted the following message on his Facebook page: "[T]he tour has been moved out to after the first of the year. No speculation, it just got moved. I'm not going to spend a lot time here with details as you speculate among yourselves, [but] there's nothing to speculate about, the tour has simply been moved."

There is not yet an official statement, but a representative for the band did confirm the news.
