We’ve had the pleasure of attending and reporting back on three of Eric Clapton‘s four previous Crossroads Guitar Festivals: the inaugural festival in Dallas in 2004, its 2010 run in Chicago, and the most recent festival in 2013 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. So to say we were disappointed not to be able to make it back to Dallas for this coming weekend’s offering of the festival is a bit of an understatement. Fortunately, some good news has surfaced in recent weeks around this year’s festival: for those not able to snag tickets to or otherwise attend the concert — which will again include two different nights of performers, with Clapton set to perform both nights — the festival has been made available for TV and online live viewing worldwide via pay-per-view, including through nugs.tv.
While the first news of the pay-per-view offering came a few weeks back, some cordcutters like us were still left looking for a way to access the concerts as a result of our streaming services not providing any pay-per-view options. But since then, nugs.tv has announced they will also be streaming the concerts live for a modest cost of $39.99 per night (starting at 8 p.m. ET on Friday, Sept. 20 and 7 p.m. ET Saturday, Sept. 21), making it possible for music fans all over the world to experience every minute of the latest installment of this fantastic festival from the comfort of their own couches, via PC or Mac, Apple and Android devices, SmartTV, the nugs.net AppleTV app, and the Qello Concerts app (which has collaborated with nugs.tv on a live streaming partnership for nearly three years now).
