The More You’re In Norway, The Closer He Gets: Morrissey to headline Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo


Our lord and savior Steven Patrick Morrissey will headline the Nobel Peace Prize Concert, held on December 11 at the Spektrum in Oslo. The Mozzer will sing three songs, and we’re sure he won’t invite Johnny Marr up on stage to join him.

In the event he does not cancel (what then for peace?), Moz will be joined by Jake Bugg, Timbuktu, Omar Souleyman, Mary J. Blige, James Blunt, and others in the festivities. We’re saddened to report that Norway’s greatest band, a-Ha, is not on the bill.

Claire Danes is hosting, however.


Tickets for the Nobel Peace Prize Concert are on sale now at the Oslo Spektrum box office (shout out to our Scandinavian readership!) and via www.oslospektrum.no.
