B.B. King, the Allman Brothers Band, Citizen Cope, Gary Clark Jr., Keith
Urban and Los Lobos have also signed up for the big gigs on April 12 and 13.
It will be Clapton's fourth Crossroads festival since its launch in Dallas in
2004. Two other shows have also been staged in Illinois in 2007 and 2010.
Clapton had previously suggested the 2010 bash would be the last, but he
subsequently had a change of heart and agreed to keep the festival
