Crossroads Concert 1999

On 30 June 1999, Eric Clapton hosted the first major fundraising concert for Crossroads Centre at Antigua. The event at Madison Square Garden in New York City ran a little over three hours. Eric Clapton & His Band served as the “house band” throughout. The concert was filmed for home video release and for television broadcast. For television, it was edited to 1 hour 40 minutes prior to airing. It aired on VH1 in America for the first time on 17 July 1999. "Eric Clapton & Friends In Concert: A Benefit For The Crossroads Centre At Antigua" was released later in 1999 on VHS and in subsequent years on DVD. The home release version runs 108 minutes. A recording of the concert was not officially issued on CD.
