Default Peter's last gig

According to website This Day in Music, on May 24, 1970, Guitarist and founding member Peter Green played his last gig with Fleetwood Mac when they appeared at the Bath Festival, Somerset, England.

However according to Mick's book, it was on May 25. There are contradictions with the location, too. Anyway it seems May was the final month for Fleetwood Mac with Peter.

One of Pete's last gigs with us was a BBC radio broadcast we did in the middle of May. Then a club date in London, after which Pete appeared as a solo with the Grateful Dead a few days later at a music festival in the country. A week later, on May 25, we played London's Lyceum along with the Grateful Dead. It was Pete's last official appearance with Fleetwood Mac as a member of the band. (There are those who were at this show who remember Pete, crazed on acid, trying to burn the amps backstage, but I don't remember this.) Meanwhile, the press was having a field day with our misfortune.

As you're probably aware, Green did tour with the band following Spencer's departure, but I'm not sure if he was classified as an official member in 1971 during the Kiln House tour

He wasnít considered an official member. That was a temporary situation. He was only back from February 19 through March 27 and he didnít sign anything. Bob Welch debuted on May 31.
