Pavarotti to miss award ceremony

Luciano Pavarotti, battling pancreatic cancer, recently completed medical treatment and is looking forward to resuming his concert tour next year, but he won't attend a ceremony this week to receive an award, his manager said Tuesday. Terri Robson said in a statement reported by the AP that the 71-year-old tenor will not go to Bergamo, in northern Italy, to pick up the award at a concert where some of his students are singing tonight. The occasion would have been his first public appearance since undergoing surgery during the summer. The singer "recently completed his medical treatment and couldn't be happier with his results and progress," Robson said, without describing the treatment.
