Eurythmics performed their own songs together for the first time in well over 10 years on Monday evening at Sting’s anniversary concert for his Rainforest Fund.

Dave and Annie performed 3 songs: Would I Lie To You, Here Comes The Rain Again and Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This to a rapturous reception at The Beacon Theatre in New York City.



Eurythmics spectacular at The Concert for The Rainforest Fund

The iconic musical duo Eurythmics stole the show at The Concert for The Rainforest Fund at New York’s Beacon Theatre.
Dave Stewart had the audience clapping along with them as they opened their set with “Would I Lie to You?” and they went nuts when Annie Lennox belted out the first verse. This marked their first performance together since 2014.
“This is a joyous occasion and we want to be joyful because that is what makes us human,” Lennox said. “Dave and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for inviting us to perform for you tonight,” she added, and they received enormous applause.
They immediately broke into a stripped-down, acoustic version of “Here Comes the Rain Again,” which was captivating, and midway through the song Stewart alternated to an electric guitar, where they rocked out the remainder of the tune in an upbeat fashion, where Lennox displayed her dynamic vocal range.
“What a special occasion this has been,” Lennox acknowledged, and they closed with their signature song “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” which was utterly fantastic.
Following these three songs, they took a bow and Lennox blew a kiss to the New York crowd.
The Verdict
Overall, Eurythmics proved that they belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their music is still relevant as ever, and they sound as good as ever. Lennox showcased tremendous stage presence and charisma. Their live set garnered an A rating. Well done.


Somehow or another, the duo of Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart completely stole the show, rising above even Bruce Springsteen

Eurythmics Reunite
With the exception of their performance of “Fool on the Hill” at a 2014 Beatles tribute show, the Eurythmics have been completely dormant since 2005. But somehow or another, the duo of Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart completely stole the show, rising above even Bruce Springsteen, with a three-song set of “Would I Lie to You?,” “Here Comes the Rain Again,” and, of course, “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).” Lennox’s voice didn’t show the tiniest hint of wear and Stewart hit every subtle guitar note on a tender, gorgeous “Here Comes the Rain Again.” They haven’t been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame despite appearing on two recent ballots, but this performance alone proved that this gross injustice needs to be addressed very soon. They should also seriously consider another tour.


The show featured a star-studded lineup that resulted in more than one noteworthy collaboration, but topping the list was the reunion of Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart to reform Eurythmics.

The evening marked the duo’s first performance together since a tribute concert to The Beatles in 2014, and the first time they’d performed their own material together since 2008 at a U.K. Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The band was introduced by Robert Downey Jr. before performing “Would I Lie To You”, “Here Comes The Rain Again”, and their hit, “Sweet Dreams”.
