Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart reunited for the first time in half a decade last night at a charity concert.

It was also the first time the duo had performed their own tracks in a decade at the special event in New York.

Eurythmics were together during Sting‘s benefit concert, having last appeared on stage in 2014 for a Beatles tribute concert in Los Angeles.

9 of Annie Lennox's greatest ever songs

The last time they had performed their own classic hits was at the UK Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 2008.

The group played ‘Would I Lie to You’, ‘Here Comes the Rain Again’, and ‘Sweet Dreams’ at NYC’s Beacon Theatre, before returning for a version of Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin”.

Sting’s 30th We’ll Be Together event was held in aid of The Rainforest Fund, and also featured performances from Blondie‘s Debbie Harry, Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp.
