Guitar-legend Eric Clapton Announces Major US Tour
One of the world’s guitar legends, Eric Clapton, recently announced a 2013 15-city U.S. tour that will culminate in New York City with his fourth Crossroads Guitar Festival, a festival that has grown to be legendary all by itself for its performances and impromptu collaborations from some of the world’s other most famous guitar players.
Clapton and his bandmates will kick the tour off on March 14 in Phoenix, AZ. From there, the band will hit venues in Houston, Austin and Dallas, as well as New Orleans, Atlanta and Hollywood, FL.
The tour will conclude at Madison Square Garden for his two-night festival representing the past, present and future of guitar music. The sure-to-be notorious show will bring together music greats, including long-time touring partners Doyle Bramhall II (guitar), Steve Jordan (drums), Chris Stainton (piano and keyboards) and Willie Weeks (bass). Additionally, newcomers Paul Carrack (organ and keyboards) and Greg Leisz (pedal Steel guitar) will join the group, along with special guests including The Wallflowers.
All profits from the festival will benefit Clapton’s treatment and education facility for chemically dependent persons named The Crossroads Centre, located in Antigua.
Advance ticket sales for Chase customers will begin Monday, November 26 at 10 PM through Thursday, November 29 at 10 PM. Tickets will go on-sale for the general public on Friday, November 30 at 12 PM EST.
