Keith Urban and Vince Gill have signed on to appear at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival, a music event that has become legendary for its stellar performances and iconic collaborations with some of the most talented guitarists in the entire music industry. The two-day music celebration is scheduled to take place on April 12-13, 2013 in New York City.
“The Crossroads Festival is the realization of a dream for me, to gather a group of amazingly talented musicians to perform on one stage,” Clapton says of his annual event. “The Crossroads performers are all musicians I admire and respect.”
Urban and Gill join a star-studded lineup, which includes fellow country music superstar Brad Paisley, John Mayer, Jeff Beck and the Allman Brothers. The 2013 Crossroads Guitar Festival event will take place at the historic Madison Square Garden in New York for the very first time since the festival’s inception in 2004.
In additional to musical performances, the event will host the Guitar Center Road to Crossroads Exhibition, which will feature the Legends Guitar Walk, a collection of some of the most valuable guitars in the history of music. The exhibit will be open both days and is free to all ticket holders.
