A festival source tells Rolling Stone that Clapton will lead the festivities with an acoustic set at 7:30 p.m. on the 12th. He'll stay busy ahead of his headlining set on the 13th by joining many of the bands onstage for the first night, and he'll jam alongside the Allman Brothers Band for the headlining set on the opening night.



I don't even know what to say, I'm just starting to realize that it's time for Crossroads again!

Why not? I don't see a problem with it at all.

I've know several acts have done this over the years.

I look forward to eventually seeing this on DVD.

Does anyone know if this will air live anywhere like it has in the past?

While I agree that opening such an epic show with an acoustic set seems dull, i have no problem that he is doing it.

Warren always opens up Xmas Jam acoustic, then the show gets more rocking as it goes.

Seems like a logical progression to me......

I prefer getting the acoustic set out of the way and rock the rest of the night!

It has been live before. I'm pretty sure that both the 2004 and 2007 festivals aired for free online.

I think Clapton probably knows a little about how to open a show. I think Warren has been starting the X-Mas jams with acoustic sets or solos sets for a long time (oops, Rob Johnson said it first) - start small and quiet and build to big and loud. Makes sense to me, anyway. I'd heard rumors about this and I'm glad it's going to happen. I'm sure the jams with the ABB will be great.

Well it's not about if Clapton Knows how to open a show , it's just My personal opinon . Sounds like a great show , shame Clapton priced me out of this one

I don't understand why anybody would question the validity of opening with an acoustic set ... quite apart from the recent examples already mentioned ... did nobody ever listen to 4 Way Street?

I was at the "Howling for Hubert" benefit last year. Eric opened with an acoustic mini-set. No one booed as I remember it!!!!

Clapton will jam with the ABB, open Crossroads with acoustic set.

Maybe he thinks the acoustic set will catch the crowds attention before they start diddling with their phones and talking....

I am still kinda scratching my head at his choice of venue for the Crossroads shows. I guess it seems to me it would fit more into a festival type atmosphere like he has done before. It just seems kinda odd or out of place to me.

Pleasantly surprised and happy to see the Brothers getting such a prominent role at Crossroads. NYC does love the ABB so it's the perfect city for them to have a big spot. Who would have thought back in 1988 that the ABB would be doing this kind of thing in 2013? Heck in 2000 it looked like it was coming to a clumsy end. Heck, in April 2012, I didn't see this. The ABB has more comebacks than Ali had. What a story...

Who better to close it out? Imagine being the poor bastard that has to come out after an ABB/Clapton jam. It will be hard enough to remember who played before them.
