The footage is from Mick Fleetwood And Friends Celebrate The Music Of Peter Green And The Early Years Of Fleetwood Mac, filmed at the London Palladium in February 2020. Alongside Gibbons and Tyler, Neil Finn, Noel Gallagher, David Gilmour, Kirk Hammett, Jonny Lang, John Mayall, Christine McVie, Jeremy Spencer, Zak Starkey, Pete Townshend, and Bill Wyman appear across the concert.
The original track was released in 1969, with the full piece featuring two parts. The first is the traditional electric blues song, while the second is a longer instrumental piece that weaves in classical influences to the band’s sound.
At the time of the concert’s announcement, Mick Fleetwood said: “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. ‘Then Play On’…”
