Nobel Peace Prize Concert on Temporary Leave This Year

Tuesday, 03 July 2018 11:38 AM

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — The Norwegian organization that oversees the Nobel Peace Prize says a concert typically held after the annual ceremony won't take place in 2018.

Norwegian Nobel Institute Director Olav Njolstad said Tuesday that the concert was put on "temporary leave" because of "a wish to re-think the concert format and content."

Since the first concert in 1994, the event has drawn big names from the entertainment industry. Lionel Richie, Bon Jovi, Aretha Franklin and Mary J. Blige are among the performers who have hosted the event.

The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize is announced in October while the award ceremony and concert usually are held in Oslo on Dec. 10, the anniversary of award founder Alfred Nobel's death.
