Just one day after announcing he's to donate $1 million towards planting 10,000 trees in New York, Sting threw a benefit concert on Thursday night in celebration of yet another green cause close to his heart.

The one-off Some Kinda Legacy gig was to mark the 20th anniversary since, along with wife Trudie Styler, the Message In A Bottle singer founded the Rainforest Foundation, a charity dedicated to saving rainforests and supporting the people who live in and around them.

At the concert Newcastle-born Sting treated the audience to renditions of some of his biggest hits. He was also joined onstage by a number of other performers including Beachboy Brian Wilson.

Veteran Hollywood actor Dustin Hoffman was just one of the celebs lending their star power to the event, attending with his attorney wife Lisa. The charity has many A list supporters - with Tom Hanks and Robert De Niro having made donations in the past.
