Among the performers – many of whom have property or other close links to New York – were the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Alicia Keys, Bon Jovi, Chris Martin, The Who and Kanye West.

Springsteen was joined by Jon Bon Jovi for Born To Run, followed by Roger Waters performing Pink Floyd classic Comfortably Numb alongside Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder.
