Straight off a kind of late-‘60s time-travelling tour with Buffalo Springfield along with West Coast (and while preparing for the big tour next spring), Richie Furay will be dropping by StageOne with his band for rare, intimate rock show. Having formed Buffalo Springfield with best friends Neil Young and Stephen Stills (which arguably helped establish their now-infamous music careers), as well as starting Poco with Jim Messina and Rusty Young, Furay is a member of the elite folk rocking heroes of the ‘60s and ‘70s. His unmistakable voice, like on their biggest hit “For What it’s Worth” (which was actually the first song off their first record in ’66), and his stoic, almost spiritual stage presence (maybe because he’s a pastor) will send chills down your spine as you listen to them rock out 40-years worth of Furay’s music. Come out and come together for this show and you’ll never see StageOne the same way again.
About the reunion tour: “Stills' high lonesome voice anchored Rock and Roll Woman, while Young's distinctive cry lit up Burned. But Furay, who stood center stage, reminded everyone he was the linchpin, his plaintive tone painting songs such as Kind Woman, Do I Have to Come Right Out and Say It and Sad Memory with a soulful brush that had women in the largely Baby Boomer crowd doe-eyed.” – USA Today
