BARCELONA-Spanish singer-songwriter Joan Manuel Serrat, who is recovering from cancer, announced he will return to the stage in May.

Serrat was operated on for cancer of the bladder last November.

So far, he has confirmed that he will give four concerts in July at Barcelona's Teatre Grec.

In statements to Onda Cero radio, Serrat said that "getting back on a stage is recovering a normalness in life that had been substantially altered."

The Catalan singer said during 2004 he was accompanied at his concerts by a symphonic orchestra, but he said that when he returns to the state this year "I'll play only with Ricardo Miralles," his musical director, arranger and pianist.
