Co­nan O’Brien to host No­bel con­cert, Halsey to per­form

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

NEW YORK » Co­nan O’Brien cred­its his “good agent” for his lat­est gig — host of the No­bel Peace Prize con­cert.

The an­nual event is set for Dec. 11 in Oslo, Nor­way. Halsey will per­form. Pre­vi­ous hosts in­clude Jay Leno and Sarah Jessica Parker, while en­ter­tain­ment has ranged from Mary J. Blige to Paul McCartney.

O’Brien, who hosts his own late-night show, “Co­nan,” on TBS, said in a state­ment Thurs­day that it was an honor to host the con­cert. He jok­ingly thanked his agent.

This year’s peace prize was awarded to Juan Manuel San­tos, the Colom­bian pres­i­dent who has worked to end that na­tion’s civil war, which has lasted more than five decades and killed more than 200,000 peo­ple.
