This past February, Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood gathered an incredible cast of rock legends to pay tribute to his band’s original frontman, singer/guitarist Peter Green, at the London Palladium.
The all-star concert was recorded for a film and album release, which initially were delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but new release dates have now been confirmed.
The film version of Mick Fleetwood & Friends — Celebrate the Music of Peter Green and the Early Years of Fleetwood Mac will be screened in select theaters on March 23 and 28, 2021, while audio, home video and digital editions will be issued April 30.
Performers at the show included Pink Floyd‘s David Gilmour, Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler, ZZ Top‘s Billy Gibbons, The Who‘s Pete Townshend, Metallica‘s Kirk Hammett, ex-Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, Oasis‘ Noel Gallagher, and U.K. blues great John Mayall. A number of current and former Fleetwood Mac members also performed, including Christine McVie, Neil Finn and founding guitarist Jeremy Spencer.
Mick led a house band that also included guitarists Jonny Lang, Rick Vito and Andy Fairweather Low.
“The concert was a celebration of those early blues days where we all began, and it’s important to recognize the profound impact Peter and the early Fleetwood Mac had on the world of music,” Mick says in a statement. “Peter was my greatest mentor and it gave me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent.”
Green didn’t attend the event and, sadly, died in July at age 73.
Mick Fleetwood & Friends will be released in multiple formats, including a box set featuring a Blu-ray, two CDs and four vinyl LPs, and a 44-page hardbound book offering sleeve notes, photos and more.
