Opera legend Luciano Pavarotti is bringing his annual charity concert in Brazil this year (DEC04), instead of his Italian hometown of Modena.

The NESSUN DORMA star will stage PAVAROTTI AND FRIENDS in Sao Paolo in December (04), according to the news agency ANSA.

Pavarotti enthuses, "We're still defining the cast and the exact date, and we will announce them soon."

The portly tenor has organised the concert for ten years in Modena, northern Italy. The last gig in May (04) included Ricky Martin, Bono, ERIC CLAPTON and Andrea Bocelli.

Pavarotti is set to retire on his 70th birthday next year (05).
