OVER 20 OF THE WORLD’S GREATEST GUITARISTS PLAY SIDEMEN TO EACH OTHER ON ONE STAGE, FOR ONE DAY, TO SUPPORT ONE CAUSE
ERIC CLAPTON ANNOUNCES
CROSSROADS GUITAR FESTIVAL
JULY 28, 2007 CHICAGO
Day-Long Festival To Feature Legendary Music And Collaborations Including:
Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, BB King, Willie Nelson, Jeff Beck, Vince Gill, Sheryl Crow, Buddy Guy and John Mayer

(New York, NY, March 23, 2007) – Credited throughout his career with creating super sounds in super groups, the ultimate Clapton collaboration will take place July 28, 2007 when he gathers the past, present and future of guitar music onto one stage for an incredible full day musical event. Announced today, the second Crossroads Guitar Festival, scheduled for July 28, 2007 at Toyota Park in Chicago, will be a cornerstone of this year’s summer music festival season. Profits from the Festival will benefit The Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a treatment and education facility founded by Clapton for chemically dependent persons.

Since its inception, Clapton’s vision for the Crossroads Guitar Festival has been to create an event where his friends and contemporaries can have fun and jam together for the benefit of a good cause. This year’s Festival will feature a full day of musical performances with once-in-a-lifetime guitar collaborations. Known as pioneers in their field, the roster of artists spans old and new, from BB King to John Mayer (anticipated guest list below). The audience can expect unrivaled entertainment, brilliant guitar work, surprise guests and impromptu jams that are the hallmarks of these performers.

The first Crossroads Guitar Festival, in June 2004 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, was an unprecedented collection of guitar icons from blues, rock and contemporary music. The sold-out show was chronicled in a 2-disc DVD that has since gone on to become one of the world’s top-selling music DVD’s, recently achieving the 8x platinum mark in the United States alone.
“The Crossroads Festival is the realization of a dream for me, to gather a group of amazingly talented musicians to perform on one stage,” said Clapton. “The Crossroads performers are all musicians I admire and respect.”

Additional Festival artists and elements to be announced shortly.

Tickets for the Crossroads Guitar Festival will go on sale to the public on Saturday, March 31 at 10am Central Time (11am EST) via www.ticketmaster.com or Ticketmaster phone charge at 312-559-1950 or Ticketmaster retail outlets. Both reserved and general admission tickets will be available for this event. All tickets will be priced at $90 plus applicable ticketing/service charges. The ticket price includes parking for the day and the concert begins at NOON.
About Toyota Park:
Conveniently located just 15 minutes southwest of Downtown Chicago (at 71st and Harlem in Bridgeview), Toyota Park (www.toyotapark.com) is Chicagoland’s newest and most exciting outdoor concert facility.

That is an incredible lineup already without anyone else added.

But Eric better add Warren to that list. Or I might think he was nervous.

So glad to see Jeff Beck back, one of the highlights was his jamming with EC.

But Jeff being Jeff, got pissed the show finished early due to lightning storms
and wouldn't allow his performance to be put on DVD.

The first one was broadcast live on the net, I remember having a very sweet weekend sitting in my home office with brews and a smoke watching it all day long for two days. Anyone know if they are going to do that again? Nice to see Los Lobos and Jimmie Vaughan on the bill. David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas are GREAT players. Jimmie Vaughan has struggled for years I think to get out of his brother's shadow. He has much more of a laid back style, not in your face like his bro, and I'm a big fan of his playing.

I've actually had a tent pitched in Sang's backyard for a year and a half. He's not the best landlord, trust me.

I could sublet to the highest bidder for the weekend.

LOL - A year, huh? How big is this tent? Wanna see if I should bump OTF's bid.

AGREED completely!! Warren can push Eric more at his own style than Derek can, IMO.

Jeff Beck, Derek Trucks, Robert Randolph, will push EC. Clapton has played with so many people. Nervous about playing with Warren, no way. Would be nice to see Warren, but where is Jimmy Page, Mark Knopler, Eddie Van Halen, etc.

Still there is HOPE!!

More guests to be added!!!! Will the Allman Brothers or Warren Haynes be added, stay tuned!!!! More surprises to come.
