LONDON (CelebrityAccess) — Mick Fleetwood, drummer, and founding member of the legendary rock band Fleetwood Mac announced that he will host an all-star tribute celebrating the music of Fleetwood Mac and its founding member Peter Green.
Set for February 25 at the Palladium in London, the show features a host of legendary rockers, including David Gilmour, Billy Gibbons, Johnny Lang, John Mayall, Andy Fairweather Low, Christine McVie, Steven Tyler, Bill Wyman, and Zak Starkey.
“The concert is 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. Peter was my greatest mentor and it gives me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent. I am honored 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,” Fleetwood said, announcing the show.
Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (Nov. 15) via Ticketmaster, with the theater holding a pre-sale beginning Wednesday (Nov. 13).
Some of the proceeds will go to benefit the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Green, who co-founded Fleetwood Mac, played a key role in the second wave of the British Blues explosion in the late 1960s and 1970s but dropped out of the band in 1970 due to mental health challenges.
