Luciano Pavarotti has pulled out of a concert planned for tomorrow (June 4) in Monterrey, Mexico, after contracting laryngitis, according to his manager.

After coming down with laryngitis last week, Pavarotti "talked to his voice specialist and he was told to rest his voice for at least 10 days," manager Terri Robson said.

He had been due to perform in a Three Tenors concert with Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras. Robson said the Monterrey concert would go ahead despite Pavarotti's cancellation.

The 69-year-old singer is in New York, where he'll have neck surgery later this month for a separate problem, Robson said. The planned procedure has forced Pavarotti to cancel a concert in Toledo, Spain, and reschedule several others that were part of his "Farewell Tour."
