Bob Dylan drops Nobel Prize ceremony
Singer Bob Dylan will not be in place in Stockholm to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature "because of other commitments," the Swedish Academy writes on its website.

"Last night the Swedish Academy received a personal letter from Bob Dylan, where he explains that he can not make himself available in December and go to Stockholm to receive the Nobel Prize in literature. He wishes he could receive the prize personally, but with other commitments, it is unfortunately impossible. He emphasized that he feels extremely honored for receiving the Nobel Prize," the Swedish Academy writes.

The Academy claims to "respect the Bob Dylan's decision."

"That a Nobel Prize winner can not travel to Stockholm to receive the prize is unusual, but not exceptional. In recent times, several laureates have declined to attend the award ceremony for various reasons, such as Doris Lessing, Harold Pinter and Elfriede Jelinek. The award is still theirs, as it now belongs to Bob Dylan."

Furthermore, the Swedish Academy writes that it looks forward to Bob Dylan's Nobel lecture, which he must perform within six months from 10 December 2016, to keep the prize.
