Bob Dylan Will Not Go to Stockholm to Pick Up His Nobel Prize

Rolling Stone magazine and other sources report that Bob Dylan will not go to Stockholm to accept his Nobel Prize.  He told the Swedish Academy that previous committments preclude him from accepting the prize in person.  I assume that someone will go in his place to accept it, but who?  I must respectfully disapprove of Dylan's actions here.  Winning a Nobel Prize is an honor bestowed on a very select few.  What committments does he have?  The last concert on this leg of the Never Ending Tour is November 23 while the ceremony in Stockholm is December 10.  Maybe he is just lazy.  There will be a reception that day in his hometown of Hibbing, Minnesota honoring him for winning the prize.
