Mexican ranchera singer Vicente Fernandez said he was feeling better and planned to resume his farewell tour in September.

The 74-year-old singer and actor said he would perform at concerts on Sept. 10, Sept. 12 and Sept. 13 at Mexico City's National Auditorium.

"I have been enjoying my home, my family, and I have been working on my albums. And now that I feel very good in terms of my health, I want to say goodbye in cities where I did not have the opportunity to go on my farewell tour," the singer said in a statement.

Fernandez, considered the top performer of mariachi music, said in early 2012 that he planned to retire after completing a farewell tour to spend more time with his family.

The singer, known for such hits as "Mujeres Divinas" and "El rey," cancelled his concerts in the United States and Mexico in October 2012 after doctors found a lump on his liver that turned out to be cancerous.

The farewell tour, which was supposed to last one year, has been interrupted various times due to the singer's health problems.

Fernandez's farewell tour has taken him across Mexico, as well as to the United States, Spain, Central America and South America.

The singer's production company has not announced any new concert dates beyond the three shows scheduled for Mexico City.
