Last week, Morrissey performed at the 20th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo – watch the performance below.

The singer was introduced by actors Claire Danes and Aaron Eckhart and played three tracks for the audience in the Norwegian capital, backed by a band wearing blue T-shirts all emblazoned with the word “Hustler”.

Morrissey began his set with newer track ‘People Are The Same Everywhere’, followed by his cover of Lou Reed’s ‘Satellite Of Love’ and ‘Irish Blood, English Heart’ from his 2004 album ‘You Are The Quarry’.

The event, which has taken place annually on December 11 in Oslo, Norway, since 1994, is a musical tribute to honor the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.

Other artists who played at the event were Jake Bugg, James Blunt, Mary J Blige and Omar Souleyman.
