Solomon Burke, resplendently dressed in purple, headlined the aftershow party for the Ahmet Ertegun tribute concert at London’s O2 last night (December 10).

Taking place immediately after Led Zeppelin‘s storming reunion show, the aftershow party also included performances from Atlantic recording legends Ben E King and Percy Sledge.

The aftershow took place in the smaller indigo2 venue within the O2 Arena complex, and the star-studded audience included Rolling Stone Mick Jagger, Beatle Paul McCartney, Gene Simmons, Pink, Oasis’ Gallaghers and Arctic Monkeys.
