SHOW DOG star TOBY KEITH is set to perform at the DECEMBER 11th NOBEL PEACE PRIZE concert in OSLO to honor 2009 recipient PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA. WILL and JADA PINKETT SMITH will co-host the event, which will also feature performances by artists NATASHA BEDINGFIELD, WYCLEF JEAN, DONNA SUMMER and more.
The award will be given out DECEMBER 10th, on the anniversary of prize founder ALFRED NOBEL's death in 1896. The NORWEGIAN NOBEL COMMITTEE awarded the 2009 prize to OBAMA for his "efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."
Traditional NOBEL PEACE PRIZE winners attend the concert but OBAMA has not yet announced how long he will stay in OSLO.
