As for the experience itself, I was there, and while the music was great the experience was less so. Not because of the people or the event staff or even the inflated concession prices, be because of Toyota Parks irresponsible decision to run only hot water in the bathrooms just so they could sell more water. To me that is not only negligent but boarder line criminal. It was a blistering hot eleven hour day for most of us. To do that at the expense of peoples health and safety is extremely dangerous. I live downstate and don't follow Chicago news that much but I sure hope someone is suing there asses. Although Clapton had said weeks earlier that this would be his last Crossroads, that evening he said he might have to do one more. Do us all a favor EC and have it anywhere but there. The event is too once-in-a-lifetime precious to have it ruined by greedy ass-jerks like those running Toyota Park.

"While these concerts are benefits for Crossroads Center, Antigua, a nonprofit addiction-treatment clinic that Eric Clapton founded in the Caribbean, they are also rallies for what sometimes seems to be an endangered species: the guitar hero, the kind of player who can seize and hold an audience with chorus after chorus of an instrumental solo."
The old and the new guitar gods strutted their stuff before over 28,000 fans, from gospel to blues,futuristic synth solos, funky rythyms,and searing guitar breaks, jazz,and bluegrass. A virtual banquet for the ears. These concerts are always top list, classy and unforgettable, that's why I keep buying them.
Bill Murray co-hosted the events with some hilarious introductions that kept all present in stitches, the man's insane.
There is just too much to describe, I was very satisfied with this purchase, a must have for all serious collectors.

If you're lucky enough to have a great sound system to listen to a DVD through, you're going to be in Heaven.
This is so good, I even listened to Sheryl Crow without fast forwarding. I admit that Bert Jansch gave me an opportunity to make myself a coffee though. Can't have everything.
This DVD has given me the opportunity to hear Sonny Landreth. What an amazing player. Where have I been?
I bought this for Jeff Beck's performance, yet I was blown away before I even got to him!
This is one mind-blowing DVD - just the right mix of talk, back-stage shots and performance. Utterly captivating.
with Steve winwood, this dvd of Erics set is no where near as good
when Steve winwood comes on he sounds flat, go listen to voodoo Chile
in the new York dvd,you'll see what I mean, also Erics got rid of Ian Thomas
on drums and reverted back to Steve gadd ( mistake) in my opinion.
the rest if this dvd is brilliant, never thought Susan tedeschi was that good
Until I watched this amazing performance from her and trucks.
Well worth the money.
