EVANESCENCE Rocks 18th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert In Oslo (Video)

EVANESCENCE performed at this year's Nobel Peace Prize concert this past Sunday, Decemebr 11 in Oslo, Norway at the Oslo Spektrum. The concert was held a day after the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, whose honorees include President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and women's right activist Leymah Gbowee, both of whom are from Liberia, and democracy activist Tawakkul Karman of Yemen. EVANESCENCE joined a number of other accomplished performing artists, including singer-songwriter David Gray, vocalist Jill Scott, country duo SUGARLAND and Matthew Morrison from "Glee". The concert was broadcast globally in up to 130 countries, including those in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, South, Central and North America. The event was also streamed live on CNN International.

Pictured with Nobel Peace Prize 2011 laureate Tawakkol Karman, EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee tweeted that "I am inspired and uplifted. I am humbled and honored. I will remember today for the rest of my life."

EVANESCENCE tapped Dean Karr (IRON MAIDEN, OZZY OSBOURNE, MARILYN MANSON) to direct the video for the song "My Heart Is Broken". The clip was filmed on December 1 and will make its online debut in January.
