This past July, a spectacular gathering of guitar greats gathered at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago. Great Performances, a PBS-TV show in the US, will air highlights from the day-long event at Toyota Park.
PBS launched a web companion for the show on 21 November 2007, like they did for the 2004 Festival which was also broadcast as an episode of Great Performances. As a preview for the show, PBS also released a short and long promo clips which can be viewed online:
The first air-date has been announced for 28 November 2007 by WNET (Channel 13) in New York City, but may vary based on regional broadcast schedules. All broadcast schedules are subject to change.
The concert served as a benefit for The Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a treatment and education facility founded by Clapton for chemically dependent persons.
