Mick Fleetwood & Friends Celebrate the Music of Peter Green and the Early Years of Fleetwood Mac – the concert film documenting the all-star Peter Green tribute show that took place February 25, 2020 at the London Palladium – was originally supposed to be released in select theaters around the world this month.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic however, the film will instead be streamed online via video on demand.
nugs.net will premiere the film – which features Kirk Hammett, Billy Gibbons, David Gilmour, Pete Townshend, Steven Tyler, Noel Gallagher, Jonny Lang, and many more – on April 24, after which it will be available for five days on demand.
A physical release of the film on DVD will follow – in tandem with the release of its accompanying soundtrack album – on April 30.
“Peter Green taught me two unassailable lessons when it came to music: less is more and don’t worry about being clever," Fleetwood said of Green in a statement. "He played from his heart, which is why so many people, musicians, and appreciators alike gathered in London to pay tribute to him, all of us together bearing witness to the magic of Peter’s music.
“He revealed himself in his art, which sometimes happens at great cost, as it was with Peter. He showed so much of himself that he had to withdraw. And he did. May he rest easy. He was loved and he will be missed.”
Tickets for the livestream are on sale now, for $19.99.
