Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga, Springsteen, Wonder And Billy Joel Play For Sting's 60th

A host of stars including Lady Gaga, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder and Bruce Springsteen took to the stage in New York on Saturday night (01Oct11) to honour Sting on the eve of his 60th birthday.
The Police star reached the milestone on Sunday (02Oct11) and he celebrated with a lavish birthday concert in the Big Apple in aid of local charity the Robin Hood Foundation.
The gig at New York City's Beacon Theater included performances from Joel and Wonder, as well as actor Robert Downey, Jr., will.i.am and Mary J. Blige, while Sting appeared on stage with Gaga to duet on King of Pain, and he also sang The Police's hit Can't Stand Losing You with Springsteen.
The highlight of the night came at the end of the show when all the artists gathered onstage with Sting to perform Every Breath You Take.
Famous faces in the audience included Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Darren Aronofsky and Melanie Griffith, while Sting and his wife Trudie Styler also invited 32 members of Britain's Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, who have all completed missions in Afghanistan.
The evening raised more than $3.7 million (£2.5 million) for charity.
