Peter Green tribute concert super deluxe edition box setAs you'll no doubt be aware, legendary drummer Mick Fleetwood enlisted an all-star cast for a spectacular, one-of-a-kind concert, in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust, which was held on Tuesday, February 25th at London's Palladium - shortly before Covid-19 affected life everywhere, and resulted in lockdowns in many countries.

The bill for Mick Fleetwood & Friends Celebrate The Music Of Peter Green And The Early Years Of Fleetwood Mac, included Billy Gibbons, David Gilmour, Jonny Lang, Andy Fairweather Low, John Mayall, Christine McVie, Zak Starkey, Steven Tyler, Bill Wyman, Noel Gallagher, Pete Townshend, Neil Finn, Kirk Hammett and many more.

Legendary producer Glyn Johns joined as the executive sound producer and the house band featured Fleetwood himself along with Andy Fairweather Low, Dave Bronze and Ricky Peterson. Very sadly, five months after the concert, Peter passed away.

For those who weren't able to attend the concert, three different editions were announced for release - a Super Deluxe Edition Box Set, with the entire show on 4LP, 2CD and a Blu-ray in a book (and copies ordered early included your choice of name in the concert documentary credits, a reproduction signed concert poster, and reproduction signed set list); a Blu-ray and 2CD set; and a 4LP set. These were originally slated for release on October 16th, 2020, but with Covid-19 affecting the production of the release, this has now been postponed to April 30th, 2021. You can still order the Super Deluxe Edition exclusively through Townsend Music's online store. To order the other editions, you can either get them from Townsend's store, or from the following Amazon stores (thus helping Brain Damage with a much needed contribution towards site running costs, at no extra cost to you!):

MICK FLEETWOOD & FRIENDS - Blu-ray & 2CD:  Amazon UK  Germany  France  Italy  Spain 
MICK FLEETWOOD & FRIENDS - 4LP:  Amazon UK  Germany  France  Italy  Spain 

It is not available to order from Amazon.com or Amazon Canada. We suspect the Blu-ray won't have any region coding on it though, so we think you should be fine to order if you aren't in one of the countries above. We'll try and get confirmation of this though.

Plans were also in place for cinema screenings in early June this year, but again, these were impossible. March 23rd, 2021 is the revised date when you'll be able to watch the concert on the big screen. More details of this should be available soon via mickfleetwoodandfriends.com.
