Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, Noel Gallagher, Steven Tyler among stellar cast in screening of early Fleetwood Mac music
A one-off celebration of the early music of Fleetwood Mac will be screened in cinemas across the country on June 2 and June 7 as Mick Fleetwood and a stellar cast of guests pay tribute to founding member, Peter Green.
The once-in-a-lifetime celebration was captured at The London Palladium in February this year and features musical greats 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).
Mick Fleetwood curated the line-up and performs with his house band of Andy Fairweather Low, Dave Bronze, and Ricky Peterson.
Tracks performed at the event include seminal Fleetwood Mac classics, such as Albatross, Green Manalashi, Need Your Love, and more.
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. Peter was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame together with Fleetwood Mac in 1998.
On 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.”
