El Puma performs on Sept. 13, 2014 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

After recovering from the double lung transplant in December 2017, Jose Luis Rodriguez “El Puma” returns to the stage with his 2019 Agradecido Tour. Translated to "grateful," the tour is presented by AGTE Live and Live Nation Latino, bringing “El Puma’s” greatest hits to many stages in the U.S. and Latin America.

"This tour means a lot to me. It's like having passed from death to life, from darkness to light, to have a new opportunity that God gave me through the miracle of a donor,” he said in a statement, adding that he’s been recovering at a steady pace. “Today I can happily say that I am 80 percent recovered of my condition and the doctors say that in a very short time I will be 100 percent ready for my audience.”

El Puma’s first concert will take place on May 11 at The Fillmore Miami Beach. He will then visit Los Angeles and Houston before moving on to a string of Latin American countries, including a three-day stint at Teatro Gran Rex in Buenos Aires, Argentina in August. The 2019 Agradecido Tour will also make its way to Canada and Europe.

Tickets are already on sale via Ticketmaster and Live Nation with a discount code using “ELPUMA.”
