Eric Clapton announces US shows ahead of 2019 Crossroads Guitar Festival

Eric Clapton has announced a trio of US concert dates ahead of the 2019 Crossroads Guitar Festival in Dallas, TX this September.

The guitarist will play San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Phoenix with his regular touring lineup of Doyle Bramhall II, Paul Carrack, Nathan East, Steve Gadd, and Chris Stainton with Sharon White and Katie Kissoon on backing vocals.

The series will include a stop at San Francisco’s Chase Center, which will see Clapton take the stage a week after Metallica opens the new venue with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra.

In the Bay Area, Chase will hold an exclusive presale for cardholders from Tuesday, April 23 at 10am PDT - Thursday, April 25 at 10pm PDT, while general public tickets for all shows will go on sale starting Friday, April 26 at 10am local time.

The sold-out Crossroads Guitar Festival will feature the past, present and future of guitar music on one stage when it hits the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX on September 20-21 with an all-star lineup that includes Jeff Beck, Joe Walsh, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Peter Frampton, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Jimmie Vaughan, Gary Clark Jr and many more.

Launched in 2004, the 2019 edition will deliver the fifth installment in the series following events in 2007, 2010 and 2013.

As with past years, the 2019 edition is a benefit event in support of The Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a treatment and education facility founded by the guitarist for chemically-dependent persons.

Clapton will host a three-night stand at London’s Royal Albert Hall next month before playing a handful of European dates in June.
