Sting, Elton, Billy Joel and James Taylor performed at Carnegie Hall in New York on April 13, 2000. The audience paid a combined $2.5m in tickets - all to benefit the rainforest.

 

Stevie Wonder appeared just in time for a final star chorus of Amen. Elton stuck out in a white suit and pink shoes. Sting introduced him as "my boyfriend Elton John,'' who twirled a voodoo stick while turning on a gravelly echo of Screamin' Jay Hawkins for I Put a Spell on You.
