Canadian singer Michael Buble is returning to the stage next summer.
The Burnaby, B.C.-native says he's booked gigs in Dublin and London in July 2018.
The announcement comes one year after Buble revealed his son was diagnosed with cancer.
He and his wife Luisana Lopilato said that they were putting their careers on hold while Noah -- now four years old -- underwent treatment for an unspecified form of cancer.
The 42-year-old went on to cancel hosting duties for the 2017 Juno Awards.
Buble and his family visited Ottawa in June for the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards, where the singer received a medal.
He did not specifically reference his son's illness, but said he felt supported during what has been a tough time for his family.
"I thank you for the love and support that you've given me and for the pride I'm filled with every single time I'm able to stand on a stage and say, 'My name is Michael Steven Buble and I am Canadian," Buble said during a short speech.
