Mick Fleetwood has announced a special show in 2020 which will honour the early years of Fleetwood Mac and its co-founder Peter Green at the London Palladium on February 25th.
The event will feature an all-star line-up, with David Gilmour, Billy Gibbons, Jonny Lang, John Mayall, Christine McVie, Zak Starkey, Steven Tyler and Bill Wyman all scheduled to perform.
Fleetwood said in a statement: "The concert is a celebration of those early blues days where we all began, and it's important to recognise 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 honoured 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."
More guests are expected to be announced at a later date, the show will also include a house band featuring Mick Fleetwood alongside Andy Fairweather Low, Dave Bronze and Ricky Peterson.
Tickets for the concert will go on sale this Friday, November 15th. Some of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Mick Fleetwood also celebrates Peter Green in his signed limited book of the era, Love That Burns, a title that is also dedicated to Peter: "The flame who lit our world and still continues to burn. Without this man and truly gifted musician there simply would be no Fleetwood Mac."
Since 1974 Genesis has created signed limited edition books on behalf of authors and artists ranging from the Beatles to Buckingham Palace.
