Joan Sebastian recruited reporters to his Las Palmas ranch in Cuernavaca to announce his last rodeo show tour he is calling "La Última Maroma." The singer and songwriter clarified that he is not leaving show business, but only retiring from the "jaripeos" where he sang in a rode atop a horse. "I am not retiring, I am saying goodbye to the rodeos only. I am 62 years old and I am satisfied with what I have accomplished, but I know I am not getting younger," he said according to El Universal. "I want to retire on a high, I'm retiring from horses because I cannot mount anymore. There are various indicators and some members of my family suffer too much, it's the moment."

The "Secreto De Amor" singer emphasized that he is not leaving due to an illness or a cancer relapse. "I had left for health reasons with a non-encouraging diagnostic and I found out that I needed the audience and the marvelous things that happen with that feedback of so much applause," he said. "In the last 15 years I've had three batterings and fortunately we've pulled through. I have learned how to take the bull by the horns and base myself on reality. As a cancer survivor I know it can come back again and every time it can be more recurrent, I am prepared to beat it every time it returns."

Joan Sebastian has accrued great hits throughout his career like "Tatuajes," "Mi Credo," "Lobo Domesticado" and "Amor Limosnero." Sebastian has also worked with many artists like Marco Antonio Solis, Antonio Aguilar and Lucero. Joan is known as "El Poeta Del Pueblo" due to his humble roots and will continue to produce and write music. He is currently working on a new album titled "Cruzando El Mar," which is expected for release later this year. Are you sad Joan Sebastian will not be performing at rodeos anymore?
