Luciano Pavarotti sings about his farewell tour

Luciano Pavarotti (live, in hat and scarf) sings a bit as he promotes his farewell tour during a news conference in front of a giant photograph of himself. This photo was taken in Shanghai, China on December 4, 2005. Sadly, the farewell turned out to be a little more urgent than expected: Pavarotti died of pancreatic cancer less than two years later, on October 6, 2007.
