Buffalo Springfield at Bonnaroo (via WNCX)
Buffalo Springfield

Crosby, Stills and Nash's previously mentioned show at Beacon Theatre is sold out. They've since added a second date the next night (8/31) at the same venue which still has tickets available. They also have a show coming up in Mountain View, CA with Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Jason Mraz, The Doobie Brothers, Tom Morello and others to support disaster relief efforts.

Buffalo Springfield (Furay, Stills and Young) went on their first (short) tour since 1968 leading up to a headlining slot at Bonnaroo this year. They told Rolling Stone they'd do a 30-date tour in the fall which would hit LA, NYC, and other cities. The tour, which was still never officially announced, is now postponed until 2012. According to a post on guitarist Richie Furay's facebook:

"For those of you getting excited about the Buffalo Springfield fall tour - word has just come to me that it has been moved to the first of next year," he wrote. "I'm not going to spend a lot time here with details as you speculate among yourselves - there's nothing to speculate about, the tour has simply been moved."
Meanwhile, Neil Young wants to work with Justin Vernon. Though the serial-collaborator may be on the verge of slowing down:
"I think the easiest way to explain it is that before, when I had other jobs or whatever, all I ever wanted to do was play music all of the time. So now whenever anything comes along - a Peter Gabriel cover, or recording Hadestown with Anaïs, it's like yes! Of course! And then you get tired, and you think, 'Well, I'd better say no to everything from now on.' But then the Kanye thing happens. Or ... Neil Young called two days ago, and I'm almost like: 'Oh fuck,' because whatever he's going to say I'm going to want to deal with, you know?"
Maybe Neil will give Justin a break and collaborate with Taylor Swift, who he is reportedly a fan of, instead.

CSN? A lot of that old people smell around here this week. At least their show will probably be recorded for a PBS pledge drive.

Better than that hipster stench.

Sold my Bonnaroo ticket because BS was the only act I really wanted to see and I knew a tour was imminent. Let it happen sooner.

Oh that sucks that the tour is delayed. Hopefully Neil does not get a change of heart and decide to do something else, as usual, and scuttle the whole thing.
On the bright side, this gives more time to not stress over what an expensive ticket this is going to be and even worse how hard it is going to be to get.
They are playing large theaters so welcome NYC to United Palace or Radio City. Beacon i think is too small for this.

Be careful if you're driving to these shows. Old Geezers cause a lot of car accidents.

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with some hummus over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody eat some hummus now

2:48 - no doubt, they often confuse the brake and gas pedals

Better leave before the encore. Getting out of there will take forever with all those walkers, wheelchairs and oxygen tanks.

It's only $200 for balcony tickets - assholes.

"It's only $200 for balcony tickets - assholes."

Wait to watch it during the PBS pledge drive.
After viewing, for $500 you can have a DVD of the performance and a PBS colostomy bag.

Yes, this is indeed expensive. However!

The Bowery Presents is proud to bring in additional serivces to all Bowery Presents venues. Especially, the Music Hall of Williamsburg!

$20 crud/shit/vaginal secretion wiper off your faces
$45 douching ($65 if there's blood involved, naturally)
$127 "therapist" who "cares" to hear you're miserable sobbing about how you've led a meaningless existence... after the show of course.
$500 Home HIV test kit (trust us, it's worth it), to see if the real thing has hit you yet

As much as I love Neil Young, I'm resigned to the fact that I'll never see him perform live again, because the greedy eff charges way too much money. I refuse to pay more than $100 a ticket to see anyone, on principal. Even $100 is a lot. Even if I made more than 70k a year, I still wouldn't pay it.

Neil Young is a frumpy bitch.

11:04 has AIDS on the brain ... the lady doth protest too much, methinks.

1:12, you don't live in NYC, then, do you? It was $50 for his show a few months ago.

So are you gonna go for the package, Shakespearean?

What is wrong with you people? Are you reading this angry dribble you're writing. I just went on this site to look up concerts. Music is suppose to "soothe" the savage beast but sounds like you all need something much much stronger. Try being kind, compassionate and looking in the mirror.

Peace you cranky youngsters - sorry you're so wannabe jealous of original rockers - I feel bad you've lost the true rock spirit.
