Mick Fleetwood is set to steer a new all-star tribute to Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green.
The band emerged from the second era of the British Blues Boom, led by Peter Green's sensational guitar playing.
Taking their sound into the charts, they offered a largely unfiltered vision of virtuoso blues before Peter Green's mental health caused the band to splinter.
Retiring from public view, Peter Green's recovery as the Millennium dawned remains one of British music's most remarkable comebacks.
Mick Fleetwood will honour his former band mate at a special show next year, curating an all-star cast for the London Palladium.
Taking place on February 25th, all proceeds go to the Teenage Cancer Trust and the guest cast includes Billy Gibbons, David Gilmour, Jonny Lang, Andy Fairweather Low, John Mayall, Christine McVie, Zak Starkey, Steven Tyler, Bill Wyman and more.
Mick Fleetwood comments:
“The concert is a celebration of those early blues days where we all began, and it’s important to recognise the profound impact Peter and the early Fleetwood Mac had on the world of music. Peter was my greatest mentor and it gives me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent.”
“I am honoured to be sharing the stage with some of the many artists Peter has inspired over the years and who share my great respect for this remarkable musician. ‘Then Play On’…”
Tickets go on sale from 9am this Friday (November 15th).
