Tropical star Juan Luis Guerra is preparing to kick off his first U.S. national tour in over a decade. The "La Travesía" (The Voyage) tour, so named after one of Guerra's hit songs, starts July 12 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. Guerra will continue to play five more dates, including Madison Square Garden in New York and the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, with more dates expected to be announced in the coming weeks. Although Guerra has often played arenas in the United States before, he had done mostly isolated dates.

The tour comes in support of "La Llave de Mi Corazon" (EMI Televisa) which has sold 142,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album was released in March.

Additionally, the artist recently signed on with the William Morris Agency. Guerra is represented by Michel Vega.
