Clapton Announces Crossroads 2013
Posted 11/22/2012 12:15:00 PM

We the rockers of Chicago have been so fortunate over the years to have Mr. Clapton throw his Crossroads guitar festival in our backyard.  Considering it has included the very best guitarists from many different genres, it has really been a blessing for me to attend. In other words, I frikkin LOVE IT!

The good news is that Eric Clapton has announced his 2013 tour dates and it all ends with a 2 night Crossroads festival. The bad news, well for us Chicagoans, is that it will not be in our backyard. This time New York City gets the honors.

I have posted the entire list of tour dates below with both Crossroads nights in NYC. As usual, the guitarists for Crossroads are the best of the best, and usually spawn some awesome spontaneous collaboration on the live stage. Just take a look at these players:
