GREAT PERFORMANCES | Eric Clapton Crossroads Festival | PBS

11 years ago12K views



GREAT PERFORMANCES' Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festival Chicago premieres Wednesday, November 28 at 9 p.m.(ET) on PBS (check local listings).

Credited throughout his career with creating super sounds in super groups, Eric Clapton offers his ultimate collaboration with an all-star lineup of B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, John Mayer, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy and more. Bill Murray hosts.

A follow-up to his groundbreaking, Crossroads Guitar Festival in 2004 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, the event drew nearly 28,000 fans to Chicago's Toyota Park on July 28. Like its predecessor, the festival was a benefit for Clapton's Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a drug and alcohol education and treatment facility. "The Crossroads Festival is the realization of a dream for me, to gather a group of amazingly talented musicians to perform on one stage," says Clapton, who remains onstage virtually throughout the entire concert. "The Crossroads performers are all musicians I admire and respect."
