Keith Richards appeared on stage with Eric Clapton at Madison Square Garden in New York on Saturday night (April 13).

Clapton was headlining the Crossroads festival in New York when he was joined by the Rolling Stones guitarist to perform a series of songs including 'Key To The Highway'. Speaking to the audience, Richards said: "Now we're gonna rock it up," before playing 'Sweet Little Rock N' Roller', Billboard reports.

The two night Crossroads Festival brought together some of the most high-profile guitarists in the world over two nights with John Mayer, Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy all performing across the weekend. The bash, which has taken place every three years since 2004, aims to raise funds for Clapton's Crossroads Centre which is based in Antigua and helps people suffering with substance abuse.

The Rolling Stones recentlyannounced a number of live shows in Europe and America including two huge gigs at London's Hyde Park. The rock legends will perform at the central London location as part of the Barclaycard presents British Summer Time festival on July 13 in addition to the previously announced date on July 6. Support on the day will come from Jake Bugg, Tom Odell and The 1975.
