Pavarotti Postpones Performances

Published: 2006-05-30
Luciano Pavarotti has been forced to postpone the Canadian dates of his farewell tour due to a lower back condition.

Arguably the most popular opera singer in world, Pavarotti announced earlier this year that this tour would be his last. He had originally planned to come to Canada and Washington DC this June but has been forced to reschedule the dates.

According to Pavarotti's his official website his London based manager Terri Robson said in a statement, saying that the opera singer underwent surgery for back problems earlier this year and , "his doctors announced that he would be fit and able to recommence performing in June. However he went on toe develop an infection during his stay in the hHospital; this condition has unfortunately delayed his recovery time."

But don't fret the show will still go on, just in October rather than June. All tickets to the original show will be redeemable on the rescheduled date. Here are the new dates:

October 13 - Calgary, AB - Pengrowth Saddledome (originally 6/11)
October 18 - Vancouver, BC - GM Place (originally 6/16)
October 22 - Montreal, QC - Bell Centre (originally 6/3)
October 25 - Toronto, ON - Air Canada Centre (originally 6/6)
