The 8th Nobel Peace Prize Concert was held in Oslo on 11 December 2001 in honor of the Nobel Peace Prize laureate for 2001, the United Nations (U.N.) and Kofi Annan. The Concert was hosted by Meryl Streep and Liam Neeson. George Harrison passed away on November 29, a fortnight before the concert, and this was Paul McCartney's first public appearance after that. He dedicated his songs to his friend, George.
The all-star band on stage at the end included Norwegian band, A-ha. I had the pleasure of attending this concert.
