The show will take place at the London Palladium on February 25. He'll be joined by a huge lineup of musicians including Billy Gibbons, David Gilmour, Jonny Lang, John Mayall, Christine McVie, Zak Starkey, Steven Tyler and Bill Wyman. Fleetwood says: "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. 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." Green co-founded Fleetwood Mac in 1967 alongside Fleetwood, John McVie, Jeremy Spencer and Danny Kirwan, with Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joining in 1975.
They released 10 albums ahead of Buckingham and Nicks joining the group including their self-titled debut which reached the top five on the UK Albums Chart and sold more than one million copies. This summer saw Fleetwood Mac headline two sold-out nights at Wembley Stadium in a career spanning set. You can find out how to get tickets to the London Palladium show below.

"Peter was my greatest mentor and it gives me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent. Green founded the original guise of Fleetwood Mac in 1967 and he performed in the band until 1970. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. Meanwhile, Glastonbury boss Emily Eavis recently ruled out Fleetwood Mac as a potential headliner for the iconic festival's 50th anniversary next year. It comes after Fleetwood Mac, who have long been linked with the festival, heightened speculation when Mick Fleetwood told fans at their Wembley show that they still "had a big field to play", before reiterating their desire to play Glastonbury in a subsequent interview.
