Surviving members to stage US charity gigs for disabled children

Buffalo Springfield announce plans to reform after 42 years
Buffalo Springfield's surviving members have announced plans to reform after 42 years for two American charity concerts.

Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay are set to perform as an acoustic trio for the Bridge School Benefit in Mountain View, California on October 23, 24.

The trio are staging the gigs at Shoreline Amphitheatre to raise funds for children with severe speech and physical impairments, reports Rollingstone.com. Young and his wife Pegi have organised charity gigs at the school since 1986.

Pearl Jam, Elvis Costello, Kris Kristofferson, Modest Mouse, Grizzly Bear, Billy Idol, Lucinda Williams and Jackson Browne are also on the bill.

Young, Stills and Furay are the only surviving members left of the original five-piece. Bassist Bruce Palmer died of a heart attack in 2004 and drummer Dewey Martin passed away from natural causes last year.

The group released three albums - 'Buffalo Springfield', 'Buffalo Springfield Again' and 'Last Time Around' - before disbanding in 1968.
