Bruce Springsteen played ‘We Shall Overcome’ at Norwegian memorial concert

Bruce Springsteen provided a moving close to Norway’s first anniversary of its worst atrocity since the Second World War, when he sung “We Shall Overcome” to a crowd of more than 60,000 Norwegians in Oslo’s City Square, telegraph.co.uk. Springsteen’s appearance had not been confirmed until the moment he bounded onto the stage at a quarter past nine, alongside E-Street Band member Steve Van Zandt. “Steve and I are honored to be included here tonight, and for all of us who love democracy and tolerance, it was an international tragedy,” Springsteen said, nj.com reports. “I want to send this out as prayer for a peaceful future for Norway, and dedicate it to the families who have lost their loved ones.”The concert was the final part of a programme of wreath-layings, church ceremonies, memorials and concerts held across Norway on to remember the 77 victims of the terror attacks carried out last year by far-Right extreme Anders Behring Breivik. Earlier in the day, hundreds of survivors returned to Utoya Island, 23 miles outside Oslo, where Breivik killed 69 people at a Labour party youth camp.
