Eric Clapton’s Crossroads To Hit Movie Theaters
Eric Clapton‘s Crossroads Guitar Festival hit New York’s Madison Square Garden earlier this year, boasting face-melting performances by the Allman Brothers Band, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck with Beth Hart, Gary Clark Jr, Keith Urban, Keith Richards and Los Lobos, among others.
But if you missed the show, an edited version is coming to the big screen via Fathom Events – the company that brings one-night-only and limited run events (including Broadway productions, concerts, sporting events and opera) into movie theaters.
Held to benefit Crossroads Centre, a drug treatment and education facility in Antigua founded by Clapton, the concert featured a number of jam sessions including John Mayer with Keith Urban, Keith Urban and Vince Gill, Eric Clapton with Keith Richards, and Clapton with the Allman Brothers Band.
The festival, which featured guitar players ranging in age from 13 to 87, raises money for Clapton’s Crossroads substance abuse rehabilitation center in Antigua. You can learn more about the center, and donate to it,here.
The Fathom event will take place August 13, 2013. For more info, go to the Fathom website.
