Eric Clapton Planning Another Crossroads Guitar Festival
Insider reports have told us that Eric Clapton’s upcoming Crossroads Guitar Festival will be held on April 12th and 13th, 2013 at New York’s Madison Square Garden. All proceeds from the festival benefit the Crossroads Centre in Antigua, the rehab center Clapton founded in 1997. Clapton launched the festival in 2004 with it running again in 2007 and 2010. So far, nothing has been confirmed and no acts have been announced.
The last festival took place on June 26th, 2012 at Chicago’s Toyota Park in Chicago. Among the headliners that performed were the Allman Brothers Band, ZZ Top, Jeff Beck, Steve Winwood, John Mayer, B.B. King, and Sheryl Crow.
