When you use the concat demuxer, all input streams must have the same 
size (width * height), same video codec, same framerate, same audio 
codec, same number of audio tracks and the same audio sample rate.

There are two possible solutions:

1. You can add a silent audio track when you generate the second video. 
Just add a second input to your command line, for example:
-f lavfi -i anullsrc=cl=stereo -shortest

2. Or use the "acrossfade" filter when you generate the second video.
