*Actors Denzel Washington and Anne Hathaway have been tapped as co-hosts of the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Norway, while pianist Herbie Hancock and jazz funk act Jamiroquai are among the event’s performers, organizers announced today.
The concert, which will take place on Dec. 11 in Oslo, will also include performances from rocker Elvis Costello, pop star Robyn and singing legend Barry Manilow.
This year’s show honors Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo, the Chinese dissident writer and human rights activist who is currently imprisoned in his home country. The Nobel committee said this week that his family is unlikely to be able to travel to Norway to collect his Peace Prize medal, diploma and 10 million Swedish crowns ($1.44 million).
Past winners of the Nobel Peace Prize have included Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and President Barack Obama.
