  Donald Trump has pledged to unify America as he addressed cheering supporters at a concert on the eve of his presidential inauguration.

  Speaking on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, the president-elect also promised to bring change.

  Among attendees at the two-hour event were his family, actor Jon Voight and Soul Man singer Sam Moore.

  Mr Trump earlier laid a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia.

  "We're going to unify our country," Mr Trump said in brief remarks at the end of the concert.

  "We're going to make America great for all of our people. Everybody, everybody, throughout all of our country. That includes the inner cities."

  His supporters have been streaming into Washington DC, and he reminded them that many had doubted the campaign's chances of success.

  "They forgot about a lot of us," he said. "On the campaign, I called it the forgotten man and the forgotten woman. Well, you're not forgotten anymore."

  Pledging to bring back jobs, build up the military and strengthen the border, he added: "We're going to do things that haven't been done for our country for many, many decades.

  "It's going to change, I promise you. It's going to change."

  The president-elect's first stop on Thursday was at his Trump International hotel, located just blocks from the White House.

  He appeared with his wife Melania at a luncheon for members of his incoming administration.

  The soon-to-be first lady briefly spoke, telling the crowd: "Tomorrow we're starting the work."

  Mr Trump told the crowd in the presidential ballroom: "We have a lot of smart people. I tell you what, one thing we've learned, we have by far the highest IQ of any cabinet ever assembled."

  After the welcome concert, Mr Trump is set to spend the night at Blair House, the presidential guest residence located just steps from the White House.

  He is due to be sworn in at noon (17:00 GMT) on Friday.
