Jay Leno to host Nobel Peace Prize concert on Dec. 11

Former "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno is set to host the Nobel Peace Prize concert next month.

Organizers for the event announced Monday that Leno will host the Dec. 11 event at the Telenor Arena in Oslo, Norway.

The Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet was named the 2015 winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for its "decisive contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy in Tunisia in the wake of the Jasmine Revolution of 2011," the Nobel Peace Prize jury said last month.

For a first time, the concert will be live-streamed and available on YouTube.
