Last night saw the Peter Green tribute show take place at London's Palladium with no shortage of stars on display. 

The show, organised by former band mate Mick Fleetwood saw a plethora of music legends take the stage in honour of the late Fleetwood Mac founder, with proceeds going to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Fleetwood's core band was made up of Fleetwood himself, Kiwi Neil Finn, Zak Starkey, Rick Vito, Jonny Lang, Ricky Peterson, Andy Fairweather Low and Dave Bronze, while joining them onstage were Pink Floyd gutarist David Gilmore, Metallica's Kirk Hammett, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, The Who's Pete Townsend, John Mayall, Billy Wyman and Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie.

"The concert is a celebration of those early blues days where we all began," Fleetwood said. "And it’s important to recognize 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 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."

London's Palladium has hosted its fair share of stellar performers over the years – Beatlemania started here after the band played in late 1963, and Bruce Forsyth's ashes were scattered under the stage in 2018 – but in terms of an ensemble cast, not much beats the Mick Fleetwood and Friends line-up.
