Eric Clapton Sets U.S. Tour; Crossroads Guitar Festival

(Undated) -- Eric Clapton is returning to the U.S. stage. The guitar legend has mapped out a 17-date North American spring tour. He'll kick off the road trip in Phoenix, Arizona on March 14th, and make stops throughout the Southern and Northeastern U.S. Clapton will wrap up the tour with his fourth Crossroads Guitar Festival, which will take place at New York's Madison Square Garden on April 12th and 13th. More than 30 stars are on board for the event, including Jeff Beck, Robbie Robertson, Jimmie Vaughan, and the Allman Brothers Band. Booker T Jones, Albert Lee, Los Lobos, Robert Cray, and John Mayer are slated to participate as well, along with blues great Buddy Guy, country stars Brad Paisley, Vince Gill, and Keith Urban, and others.

Money raised through the festival will go to The Crossroads Centre, a treatment facility Clapton established in Antigua.
