Watch Morrissey’s Set for the Nobel Peace Prize Concert
'Autobiography' writer covers Lou Reed at Oslo event
Above you’ll find Claire Danes and Aaron Echhart introducing Morrissey and his band at the 20th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo. The performance took place on Wednesday night in the Norwegian capital, and Moz wasn’t the only musician onstage. Also scheduled to perform were Jake Bugg, Omar Souleyman, Timbuktu, Mary J. Blige, James Blunt, Zara Larsson, and Envy.
For his part, the formewr Smiths singer performed his newer song “People Are the Same Everywhere,” his cover of Lou Reed’s “Satellite of Love,” and 2004’s You Are the Quarry standout “Irish Blood, English Heart.” For reasons unexplained, his entire band wore blue Hustler shirts. Of course, it’s possible that further details were given, and edited out after the fact (Autobiography, ahem).
