Buffalo Springfield will reunite in late October to perform as part of the annual Neil Young-hosted Bridge School Benefit concert series at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, Calif.
The band, featuring Young, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay, will perform both nights (Oct. 23 and 24). So will Elvis Costello and Pearl Jam; Elton John and Leon Russell will play Oct. 24 as part of T Bone Burnett’s Speaking Clock Revue.
Other acts scheduled to perform that weekend include Jackson Browne, Billy Idol, Kris Kristofferson and Merle Haggard.
Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. PT on Sept. 19 through Live Nation.
The Bridge School, which assists children with severe physical and speech impairments to communicate effectively, was founded in 1986. That same year, Young held the first concert fundraiser for the school, which opened in 1987 in Hillsborough, Calif. The Bridge School moved to its permanent home on the campus of Hillsborough’s North Elementary School in 1995.
