Watch David Gilmour, Mick Fleetwood, and More Cover Fleetwood Mac's "Albatross"

Last February, Mick Fleetwood gathered a laundry list of famous friends together at the London Palladium for a tribute concert honoring his former Fleetwood Mac bandmate, Peter Green.

Held on February 25, 2020, 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 one of the concert's standout performances, a rendition of the classic Fleetwood Mac instrumental, "Albatross," featuring David Gilmour taking the lead on lap-steel. 

For the performance, Gilmour was accompanied by Rick Vito and Andy Fairweather Low on guitar, Dave Bronze on bass, Zak Starkey on percussion, and, of course, Mick Fleetwood on drums. 

The video is part of Mick Fleetwood & Friends Celebrate the Music of Peter Green and the Early Years of Fleetwood Mac, a concert film documenting the show. The film will be premiered on April 24 at nugs.net, 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.

Tickets for the livestream are on sale now, for $14.99
