Morrissey to Headline Nobel Peace Prize Concert

The arc of the Morrisey universe may be long and cantankerous, but it bends toward peace (and militant vegetarianism). So it’s probably appropriate that he’ll be headlining the Nobel Peace Prize Concert on Dec. 11 in Oslo. The show will also feature artists like Mary J. Blige, James Blunt, Timbuktu, Jake Bugg and Omar Souleyman, and will be hosted by Homeland actress Claire Danes.

Morrissey wrote on Facebook that he’ll be performing three songs. Tickets are now on sale.
