The Nobel Peace Prize Concert has been held annually since 1994 on 11 December, to honour the Nobel Peace Prize laureate. The award ceremony on 10 December takes place in Oslo City Hall, while the concert is in the Oslo Spektrum, with the attendance of the laureate and other prominent guests. The concert is broadcast to over 100 countries.
The concert features performers from a wide range of musical genres, the exception being the year of 1995, when a classical concert was held instead. Several editions of the concert are recorded, with different lengths and content, for airing in several countries.
The hosts give descriptions of the winner’s work, an interview with the winner is shown, and the winner gives a speech during the concert.
This star-studded concert – held annually to honour the Nobel Prize laureate – saw Paul joining the likes of Destiny’s Child, Wyclef Jean and Russell Watson on 11th December 2001. Each year the concert ends with a rousing finale featuring all of the evening’s performers and in 2001 it ended with a fitting version of The Beatles’ ‘Let It Be’.
