Eric Clapton Announces US Tour & Crossroads Festival

Eric Clapton has announced a major US Tour in 2013 that will end with the 4th Crossroads Guitar Festival.

From Eric's Official Page:

Clapton and his band will visit more than a dozen cities across the U.S. beginning March 14, 2013 (see itinerary below). The tour will end with the two-night Festival where Clapton will gather the past, present and future of guitar music onto one stage for an unparalleled musical event

I expect there will be a huge roster of awesome musicians, who in the past include BB King, Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Randoph, Jeff Beck, Vince Gill, ZZ Top, John Mayer etc. The official website of the Crossroads Fest has opened; check it out [here]:

 I have the 2004 and the 2007 on DVD; while I enjoyed the 2004 concert, the 2007 however felt stale.  Here's "Sweet Home Chicago" being played by Clapton, Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Cray, and Hubert Sumlin from the 2004 festival:
