The second staging of guitar hero and rock legend Eric Clapton’s CROSSROADS GUITAR FESTIVAL found a sweet home in the Second City on July 28, 2007 when many of the world’s greatest guitarists convened for a concert benefiting Clapton’s Crossroads Centre rehabilitation facility in Antigua. Filmed live at Chicago’s Toyota Park, the 2-DVD set CROSSROADS GUITAR FESTIVAL 2007 FROM CHICAGO presents four hours of world-class guitar masters, spanning multiple genre boundaries, performing incendiary solo sets and jamming in unison.
The 2007 festival, which Rolling Stone called “a marathon of solos and joy,” no doubt was the stuff of dreams for the fans in attendance as well as for Clapton and friends. The Festival featured a multi-generational array of talent spanning John Mayer to Jeff Beck to B.B. King that Modern Guitars Magazine dubbed an “incredible nexus of old-school electric guitar titans and younger upstarts.”
Shot in HD, the double-DVD set features 38 tracks, and also gives viewers an all-access pass with extraordinary behind-the-scenes footage captured backstage at this all-star, six-string summit. The audio is presented in 5.1 Surround Sound.
