Scheduled for Dec. 11 at Oslo’s Spektrum Arena, the announced lineup also includes Janelle Monáe, Bernhoft and the World Youth Choir.
Sponsored by Cisco and produced by IMG in cooperation with Eyeworks Dinamo and NRK, the concert will honor Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkul Karman, recipients of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.
Sirleaf is the president of Liberia. Gbowee is a Liberian peace activist whose work helped end a civil war in that country. Karman was very much involved in protests in Yemen this year and is referred to in her country as “Mother Of The Revolution.”
In selecting this year’s recipients, the Norwegian Nobel Committee praised them for “their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work.”
Tickets for the Nobel Peace Prize Concert go on sale Thursday at the Oslo Spektrum box office. But if you can’t make it to the box office tomorrow, point your browser to OsloSpektrum.no.
