Ricky Martin's "Black & White" tour kicks-off a seventeen-city run in the United States and Canada with an April 17 show at San Jose, California's HP Pavilion.

The arena tour will wend its way through the southwestern US, Canada, Rosemont, Illinois and the East Coast before ending at Orlando's Amway Arena
May 20.

More dates are expected to be announced. Martin is currently on tour in Latin America after a sold-out, four-night run at Puerto Rico's Jose Miguel Agrelot Coliseum.

A portion of ticket sales will benefit the Ricky Martin Foundation, which promotes child welfare around the world. Martin's latest album for Sony BMG, an "MTV: Unplugged" set, has sold 138,000 copies in the US and Puerto Rico, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
