Nobel Peace Prize Concert organizers announced today that world-renowned Latin music star Juanes will perform at the 23rd annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert on Sunday, December 11th in Oslo, Norway, at the Telenor Arena. The influential Colombian singer, songwriter and global activist is joining the evening at the special invitation of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. The evening’s final musical lineup will also include Sting, Halsey, Highasakite and Icona Pop, with Conan O’Brien serving as host.
“Advocating that all people have a right to live in peace has long been a cornerstone of my music and the work of our foundation, so I’ve been flattered to participate in past Nobel concerts recognizing global leaders pursuing peace across our world,” said Juanes. “With this year’s award recognizing the efforts of President Santos to bring a lasting peace to my own nation, I am beyond honored to be asked to perform at the ceremony in Oslo once again this year.”
