Uma to co-host UN concert

Oslo, Nov. 14 (AP): Actress Uma Thurman will join actor Tommy Lee Jones as co-host of the Nobel Peace Concert honouring former Vice-President Al Gore and the UNís climate change panel, organisers announced today.

The December 11 concert, held the day after the Nobel Peace Prize is presented in Oslo, draws top music and film stars, and is broadcast to more than 100 countries, a news release said.

Organisers earlier announced that Jones, who was Goreís roommate at Harvard University, would co-host the concert and that the line-up of performers included Alicia Keys, Annie Lennox and Melissa Etheridge, who won an Academy Award this year for the song I Need to Wake Up.

Thurman, 37, stared in such movies as Pulp Fiction, Dangerous Liaisons and the Kill Bill films. She is also politically active in supporting gun control and fighting poverty.
