Food was supplied by London restaurants L'Anima, Benares, Brindisa and Caravan, with Veuve Clicquot and Fiji Water supplying the drinks.

Rob Tincknell, Chief Executive Officer of Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: "Hosting a performance, on behalf of the shareholders and everyone that is helping restore this famous London landmark, from one of the best-loved and most-renowned British recording artists of all time at of one of the UK's most iconic buildings was a great occasion.
