Cuban singer-songwriter Pablo Milanes arrived Tuesday in Mexico to give a concert that same evening at the Zacatecas Cultural Festival, diplomatic officials said.
Milanes, 69, had to cancel a tour of Spain last month after being operated in Madrid.
Cuban diplomatic sources and the Zacatecas festival confirmed to Efe that Milanes will go on with the show in Mexico and that his concert will be performed as planned Tuesday night at the Plaza de Armas in Zacatecas city.
The Zacatecas Cultural Festival opened last Saturday and will continue until April 14. Others scheduled to perform include Argentine singer-songwriter Alberto Cortez and Peru’s Tania Libertad.
Ringing down the curtain on the festival will be the Spanish group Mocedades.
Milanes had surgery in Madrid early last month for an umbilical hernia, and doctors there recommended that he rest for several weeks afterwards.
