Since 2004, Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival has taken place every three years. Previous festivals took place in Dallas, Texas, and Chicago, Illinois. This time around, Clapton brought the show to the Big Apple’s Madison Square Garden.

Coinciding with the show was the “Guitar Center Road to Crossroads” exhibit in the terrace level of the Garden, which displayed Clapton’s new line of guitars in partnership with Guitar Center, Fender, Gibson, and Martin, along with several historically significant guitars including perhaps the most important Strats of all time—Clapton’s “Blackie” and “Brownie,” and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Lenny.” These instruments were on loan from the Guitar Center Legends Collection and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Tickets for the 2013 Crossroads Festival went on sale last November and sold out within minutes. The biggest guitar stars on the planet—a diverse cast featuring Clapton, Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, B.B. King, Allman Brothers Band, Brad Paisley, Vince Gill, Keb Mo, Keith Urban, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and Allan Holdsworth, among many, many others—all came together to perform under one roof.
