Release Date: 20/11/2020
On September 20th & 21st 2019, Eric Clapton had his fifth and final Crossroads Guitar Festival in Dallas, TX. On November 13th, Rhino will officially release Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival 2019 as a 6LP set. Even more special, Eric Clapton himself has curated the tracks for his final Crossroads release.
The 2019 festival featured Bill Murray as the Master of Ceremonies and included electrifying performances by a “who’s who” of legendary and revered guitarists. Performers include James Bay, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Gary Clark Jr., Shery Crow, Peter Frampton, Vince Gill, Buddy Guy, Lianne La Havas, Los Lobos, John Mayer, Bonnie Raitt, The Marcus King Band, Tedeschi Trucks Band, and many more. As with previous releases, all profits will benefit The Crossroads Centre in Antigua.
The first Crossroads Benefit Concert took place in 1999 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The Crossroads Guitar Festival made its debut in 2004 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. That sold-out show was chronicled in a two-disc DVD that has since gone on to become one of the world’s top-selling music DVDs, achieving the 10x platinum mark in the United States alone. The subsequent DVD sets met similar acclaim. The 2007 collection was certified 6x platinum; the 2010 set was certified 3x platinum; and the 2013 set was certified platinum. Since 2004, The Crossroads Guitar Festival has been held every three years except in 2016.
