Mick Fleetwood, one of the founding members of British-American rock band, Fleetwood Mac is set to host a concert, honouring the early years of the band and its co-founder Peter Green. 

The concert will be held on February 25 at the London Palladium, reports the Rolling Stone.

Fleetwood has enlisted all-star musicians to perform at the show and the line-up includes David Gilmour, Billy Gibbons, Jonny Lang, John Mayall, Christine McVie, Zak Starkey, Steven Tyler, and Bill Wyman.

“The concert is a celebration of those early blues days where we all began, and it’s important to recognize the profound impact Peter and the early Fleetwood Mac had on the world of music,” Fleetwood said in a statement. 

“Peter was my greatest mentor and it gives me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent. I am honored 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.”

Fleetwood will act as the house band alongside Andy Fairweather Low, Dave Bronze and Ricky Peterson. Producer Glyn Johns will be the executive sound producer for the concert. The event will be filmed, directed by Martyn Atkins.

Exclusive pre-sale tickets will go on sale on Wednesday at 10am GMT while public tickets go on sale from Friday via Ticketmaster

A donation from the event will go to a UK based cancer centre. 

In 1967, Green co-founded Fleetwood Mac alongside Fleetwood, John McVie, Jeremy Spencer and Danny Kirwan. 

Fleetwood Mac sold more than 120 million records worldwide, which made them one of the world's best-selling bands.

 In 1998, members of Fleetwood Mac were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They also received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to music.
