Watch Eurythmics perform together for the first time in five years

They hadn't played their own tracks in over 10 years

Eurythmics performed together for the first time in five years during Sting‘s benefit concert in New York last night (December 9). Check out the footage below.

The synth-pop outfit, comprised of Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart, last took to the stage in 2014 for a Beatles tribute concert in Los Angeles.

Last night’s appearance marked the first time Eurythmics had performed their own material live in over a decade, following an outing at the UK Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 2008.
