Bob Dylan confirms non-attendance at Nobel Prize ceremony


It has been announced that Bob Dylan will not travel to Sweden to receive his Nobel Prize for Literature in person.

The Swedish Academy, which awards the Nobel prizes, said it had received "a personal letter" saying he was unable to attend next month's Nobel ceremony "due to pre-existing commitments".

Dylan, the organization said, felt "much honored" and wished he could receive the prize personally.

The singer is required to give a Nobel lecture between now and next June.
