Home Celebrity Sting Chosen By Nobel Prize Committee to Perform at Ceremony for Bob...

If Bob Dylan makes it to Stockholm for the Nobel Prize ceremony on December 11th, he’ll have some good entertainment. The committee has chosen Sting to be the entertainment for the evening. Up and comer Halsey and a group called Highasakite will open the show. Conan O’Brien will host.

Sting is an excellent choice because he’s such a huge humanitarian and has lent himself to a number of causes including Amnesty International and the Rainforest Foundation. That should be some night. And no doubt Sting will perform a Dylan song– you could totally imagine his version of “Forever Young.”
