On February 25, 2020, Mick Fleetwood hosted a star-studded tribute concert for his former Fleetwood Mac bandmate, Peter Green.
Held at the London Palladium, the concert featured Kirk Hammett, Billy Gibbons, David Gilmour, Pete Townshend, Steven Tyler, Noel Gallagher, Jonny Lang, and many more, and was a poignant tribute to the blues guitar legend, who sadly died just a few months later, on July 25, 2020.
Above, you can watch a professionally shot video of Gibbons, Tyler, and more coming together for a red-hot version of Fleetwood Mac's 1969 tune, "Rattlesnake Shake."
The video is the second clip released so far from Mick Fleetwood & Friends Celebrate the Music of Peter Green and the Early Years of Fleetwood Mac, an upcoming film and live album documenting the show.
You can check out the first preview clip released from the movie – a video of Hammett and Gibbons' take on the Green/Fleetwood Mac classic, "The Green Manalishi" – below.
Mick Fleetwood & Friends Celebrate the Music of Peter Green and the Early Years of Fleetwood Mac will be released online via video-on-demand in April, while a physical release of the accompanying album is set for an April 30 release via BMG.
