Clapton Slates U.S. Tour culminating at Crossroads Festival.Eric Clapton announced today a U.S. tour culminating in his fourth Crossroads Guitar Festival. The Festival, which has become known for hosting performances and impromptu collaborations from legendary guitar players, will take place April 12-13 at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

Clapton and his band will visit more than a dozen cities across the U.S. beginning March 14. The tour will end with the two-night Festival. All profits from the Festival will benefit The Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a treatment and education facility founded by Clapton for chemically dependent persons.

“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.”
