Composer, singer-songwriter, actor, author, and activist Sting will perform at the 23rd annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert.
“It is a true honor to take part in the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize Concert,” says Sting. “I have always believed in music as a tool for promoting the message of peace, and I believe this concert will do just that.”
As one of the world’s most distinctive solo artists, Sting has earned an additional 10 Grammy Awards, two Brits, a Golden Globe, an Emmy, three Oscar nominations, a TONY nomination, Billboard Magazine’s Century Award, and MusiCares 2004 Person of the Year. Also a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, in December 2014 he received the Kennedy Center Honors, one of the most prestigious cultural prizes in the United States. Throughout his enduring career, he has sold close to 100 million albums from his combined work with The Police and as a solo artist.
In addition to his well-known and much loved hits, Sting will also perform music from his solo studio album, 57th & 9th, his first pop/rock project in over a decade.
