I was looking on pollstar & it doesn't mention ZZ Top in the lineup anymore. It also mentions that they're playing Summerfest on that same day. Hopefully they'll still play though. Guess they could do both on the same day. Also, still no word on whether the festival will be shown online or not, but hopefully it will.

I am wondering just how long ABB will play at the Crossroads show with the lineup including all of the other bands/artist.
I would like to go but $100 is steep, and I would be bummed out if they only played an hour. Did anyone go to the last Crossroads fest at Toyota park?
How long did the headliners play?

I think most of the acts played up to 30 minutes onstage. Clapton played probably 1 hr, 30 min. So The Allmans will probably get 30-45 minutes. One other thing, tickets are sold out, so unless you buy some on stubhub, ebay, craigslist, etc. you're out of luck.

Thanks,
That is kinda what I thought. I will just hope they add some shows
in August, or just save my pennies for next March in NYC!

If you thought $100 was steep, you should check out what some of the tickets are currently going for on stubhub! The show sold out in minutes, and seems as though the ticket brokers bought out all the tickets. I'd love to go....but not for $250.

If anyone has extras.....PM me please!

$100 for a full day of music (plus workshops) featuring the following guitarists/bands does not seem excessive to me given today's concert ticket prices (where your ticket will get you 2-3 hours of music if you've got a performer/band that brings it on). I'm looking forward to it! I never expected that ABB would play their 'normal length set' since they are just one of many participants in this. But I'm tickled that they are part of this line-up!

The brothers will get an hour set at least. I went in 2007 and a lot of the people on the list will play together. BB King played maybe 2 songs and i believe he played with Robert Crays band, Johnny winter came out and played 1 song with DTB. The country set was an hour long and knocked everybody off allison kraus, vince gill, willie nelson etc. There was a blues set with Jimmy Vaughn, Robert Cray, hubert sumlin.
Jeff Beck, buddy guy and John Mayer all got hour sets. The brothers will definitely have an hour at least out there.

googling "crossroads 2010" and "streaming" along with looking at the where'sEric site, I don't see where they have announced anything about streaming the festival yet. People are assuming they will based on the fact that they did in 2007.

Hopefully, we will see Clapton play a few songs with the ABB set and we should see Derek back out during EC's set.
