Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler will be performing at this year's (14) Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo, Norway.

The rocker leads the line-up for the annual event, which also includes British singer Laura Mvula and Norwegian star Gabrielle.

Tyler says in a statement, "I am excited to bring rock 'n' roll to this incredible night, honouring some of the world's most courageous activists."

Rapper/singer Queen Latifah will host the concert, which is held in honour of the 2014 recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize children's rights activist Kailash Satyarthi and teenage education campaigner Malala Yousafzai.

The concert takes place on 11 December (14).
