Fleetwood Mac: All-star Peter Green tribute concert to stream online

An early 2020 all-star concert tribute to Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green will debut online via on April 24.

Originally set to screen in cinemas worldwide later this month (it will still open in theaters in Australia and New Zealand on March 25), the planned global launch will now be streamed “due to on-going Covid-19 restrictions” ahead of its arrival in UK and European cinemas this autumn.

Organized by Mick Fleetwood, the February 25 event at London’s Palladium in support of Teenage Cancer Trust saw the drummer salute his former bandmate and the original era of the group with the help of a lineup that included Christine McVie, David Gilmour, Pete Townshend, Kirk Hammett, Billy Gibbons, Steven Tyler, Bill Wyman, John Mayll, Zak Starkey, Noel Gallagher and original Fleetwood Mac guitarist Jeremy Spencer, among others.

“The concert was a celebration of those early blues days where we all began,” says Fleetwood, “and it’s important to recognize the profound impact Peter and the early Fleetwood Mac had on the world of music. Peter was my greatest mentor and it gave me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent.

“I was 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’...”

The tribute event took place just five months before Green passed away in his sleep on July 25 at the age of 73.

Green was a member of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers before forming Fleetwood Mac with Fleetwood, Spencer and bassist Bob Brunning in London in 1967; the band issued their self-titled debut album and a second record, “Mr. Wonderful”, in 1968, and a third, “Then Play On”, in 1969 before Green exited the lineup in the spring of 1970.

The guitarist wrote a number of classic tracks and hits for the group during the early years, including “Black Magic Woman”, “Man Of The World”, “Oh Well” and "The Green Manalishi (With the Two Prong Crown)."
