|Music icon Bob Dylan will not attend the Nobel ceremony in December to accept his literature prize because he has "other commitments" under armour speedform apollo twist suomi , the Swedish Academy said on Wednesday.
"The Swedish Academy received a personal letter from Bob Dylan yesterday where he explained that he could not make himself available in December...," it said in a statement.
"He wishes that he could accept the award personally, but other commitments make it unfortunately impossible. He underlined that he feels incredibly honoured by the Nobel prize," it added.

"The prize is not (given) so that one will travel to Stockholm under armour phenom proto suomi , but it is an award for a life's work," she said, adding that Dylan did not tell her what his "other commitments" were.
