He made his US debut in Miami soon afterwards, also on Sutherland's recommendation.

He sang on that occasion with fellow star tenors Plácido Domingo and José Carreras, bringing opera highlights to a wider audience. Appearances in advertisements and with pop icons in concerts furthered his international celebrity. His final performance in an opera was at the Metropolitan in March 2004. The 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, saw him on stage for the last time, where Pavarotti performed Nessun dorma, with the crowd serving as the aria's chorus, and he received a thunderous standing ovation.[2] On Thursday 6 September 2007, he died at home in Modena from pancreatic cancer, aged 71. He made numerous recordings of complete operas and individual arias, and established himself as one of the finest tenors of the 20th century.[3]
