Eric Clapton Plans Acoustic Set, Allman Brothers Jam for Crossroads Guitar Festival

Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival will take over New York's Madison Square Garden on April 12th and 13th, and he'll be starting it off in a special way. A festival source tells Rolling Stone that Clapton will lead the festivities with an acoustic set at 7:30 p.m. on the 12th. He'll stay busy ahead of his headlining set on the 13th by joining many of the bands onstage for the first night, and he'll jam alongside the Allman Brothers Band for the headlining set on the opening night.
