Before revealing his cancer diagnosis and now recovery, Don Omar was preparing for the second leg of his Back to the Reggaeton Tour.

He also contributed a song to the Back to the Reggaeton EP last year with Wisin y Yandel. 

The Back to Reggaeton Tour is scheduled to resume on August 7 in Oakland, CA.
