With the generous support of some of the world’s most well-known musicians and performers, throughout 18 years of concerts of its kind, the evening continues to be one of the most sought-after tickets of the New York social calendar. Past performers include Elton John, James Taylor, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Diana Ross, Bette Midler, Meryl Streep, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Will Ferrell, Jennifer Hudson, and many, many more.

The biennial Rainforest Fund concert provides a major source of funding for the work of the Fund, which was started by Sting and Trudie in 1989, out of a desire to help a community of indigenous Amazonian people in Brazil. Since this humble start, the work of the Fund has expanded to include 23 countries on three continents. Partnering with more than 100 local organizations, The Fund seeks to conserve the environment as well as support hundreds of thousands of indigenous people in their fight to protect their rights to their own land, livelihoods and cultures.
