Backed by the Patti Smith Group, the punk icon performed Bowie's Jean Genie and Tonight - the song he co-wrote with the Thin White Duke for his Lust For Life album - at Carnegie Hall.

Iggy joined forces with soul singer Sharon Jones for the latter track, which Bowie also recorded with Tina Turner.

The former Stooges frontman also thrilled fans with a spoken word performance of a poem titled I Talked to a Smart Guy, which featured musical backing from composer Philip Glass, the co-founder of the Tibet House charity.

The punk star's poem and a second piece were written for the show.

This year's (16) Tibet House Benefit Concert also featured sets from Tibetan singer Dechen Shak-Dagsay, Gogol Bordello and FKA Twigs, while Uma Thurman, the daughter of Tibet House co-founder Robert Thurman, hit the stage with her dad and Gogol Bordello frontman Eugene Hutz to auction off a guitar.
