Also on the bill were Boyz II Men and vocalist Sylvia Tosun.

Organisers described the concert as the first by foreign musicians at the wall, although British DJ Paul Oakenfold performed there last year and later released an album of the show.

Some of the proceeds are to go to a Chinese children’s charity.
