Venezuelan singer/songwriter Franco De Vita is celebrating his 25th anniversary in the music business with a U.S. tour that kicks off March 5 at the Nokia Theater in New York City.

De Vita's "Simplemente La Verdad" (Simply the Truth) tour, named after his "Simplemente La Verdad" album released earlier this year on Sony BMG Latin, includes seven U.S. dates and four Mexico dates. More stops are expected to be announced.

Following its New York kick-off, the tour continues to Miami and Orlando, then diverts to four Mexico dates, including a March 13 stop at Mexico City's Auditorio Nacional.

De Vita's tour is being produced by Alegria Producciones and Day One Entertainment, the talent development arm of Sony BMG Latin, which earlier this year produced the tour by Jorge Celedón and Jimmy Zambrano.
