VIDEO: Allman Brothers perform Whipping Post at 2013 Crossroads Guitar Festival



Eric Clapton is sharing video of a performance of “Whipping Post” by the Allman Brothers Band as seen on the new live package, “2013 Crossroads Guitar Festival.”

Due for release November 19 in North America on DVD and Blu-ray and – for the first time ever – audio highlights on digital and CD, the clip is the second one issued from the set featuring the Allmans – watch Clapton and the band play “Why Has Love Got To Be So Sad” here.

“2013 Crossroads Guitar Festival” features nearly 5 hours of music across 45 tracks, plus conversations with the artists and other behind-the-scenes footage from the event.

On April 12 and 13 in New York City, Clapton assembled an unparalleled lineup of the world’s most celebrated guitarists for the fourth incarnation of his legendary festival, where the world’s greatest players perform together to raise funds for the Crossroads Centre in Antigua. Clapton founded this treatment and education facility in 1998 to help people suffering from chemical dependency.

This year’s festival featured two different nights of music with performances by Clapton, the Allman Brothers Band, Blake Mills, Buddy Guy, Derek Trucks, Doyle Bramhall II, Gary Clark Jr., Jeff Beck, John Mayer, Keith Richards, Keith Urban, Los Lobos, Robert Cray, Sonny Landreth, Steve Cropper, Vince Gill, Warren Haynes and more.
