Bruce Springsteen plans to hold a concert to honor the victims of the tragic terror attacs at Utoya July 22, sources inside the Norwegian Labour Party confirm.

On July 22nd 2011, mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik killed 69 people at Utoya just outside the Norwegian capital Oslo, where the youth division of the Norwegian Labour Party held its annual summer camp.

With Springsteen joining the ranks, next year's summer camp - marking 365 days since the horrible 2011 Norway attacks - will host one of the world's biggest entertainers.

Not officially confirmed
The Norwegian Labour Party's (AUF) youth division themselves initiated the process, following official confirmation from the artist himself. Springsteen recently revealed he's doing official concerts in Norway on July 21st, 23nd and 24th next year, which means he will be in Norway on July 22nd.

TV 2 Norway understands the youth division has received positive feedback from Springsteen, but is yet to receive a final confirmation.

Springsteen's music is famous for containing political themes reflecting his responses to the events occurring around him, a concert at Utoya being yet another example.
