The world will mark the first anniversary of the death of Luciano Pavarotti with a series of concerts, an exhibit and other events, organizers and his family announced Friday.

Among the tributes planned for the celebrated tenor, who died Sept. 6, 2007, are a concert on Sept. 18 at New York's Metropolitan Opera House, and an exhibit on his life, with photographs, films and costumes collected by friends and colleagues, that opens on Oct. 17 in Rome.

Another concert in Petra, Jordan, is scheduled for Oct. 12, organizers said.

Pavarotti died at age 71 after a yearlong battle with cancer.
