Mick Fleetwood and a stellar cast of guest stars pay tribute to the music of Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green in a captivating performance to be screened at cinemas across the UK.
The once-in-a-lifetime celebration was captured at the London Palladium last month and features a spectacular line-up of musical greats curated by Mick Fleetwood, including Neil Finn (Crowded House), Noel Gallagher (Oasis), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Jonny Lang, John Mayall, Christine McVie (Fleetwood Mac), Zak Starkey, Jeremy Spencer (Fleetwood Mac), Pete Townshend (The Who), Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), Rick Vito (Fleetwood Mac) and Bill Wyman (The Rolling Stones).
The house band at the Palladium featured Mick Fleetwood himself along with Andy Fairweather Low, Dave Bronze and Ricky Peterson.
Tracks performed at the event included seminal Fleetwood Mac classics, such as Albatross, Green Manalashi, Need Your Love and many more.
The Times gave the Palladium concert 5* calling it ‘a unique treat’, The Guardian called it a ‘rousing all-star celebration’ in their 4* review while The Daily Telegraph hailed the show as the ‘rock ‘n’ roll equivalent of Avengers Assemble’.
Directed by award-winning concert director Martyn Atkins (Joni 75, Crossroads Guitar Festival, Cream at the Royal Albert Hall), the cinema event will feature an introduction by Mick Fleetwood, plus exclusive rehearsal footage and interviews with guest artists. Legendary sound producer Glynn Johns, who produced albums for The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Eagles and Led Zeppelin, takes charge of the audio production.
Peter Green was a founding member of Fleetwood Mac and had a huge impact on the band, as well as being recognised as one of the greatest musicians in the world.
Speaking about the show coming to cinemas, Mick Fleetwood said: ‘This one of a kind show was no mean feat to put together and the ability to share and relive the event all over again in cinemas is incredible, for us as artists, as well as our fans.
“I’m very happy this performance can now be experienced in a big screen format by audiences far and wide all over the globe.”
