LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - Ricky Martin’s “Black & White” tour begins a 17-city run in the United States and Canada with an April 17 show at San Jose, California’s HP Pavilion.

The arena tour wraps May 20 at Orlando’s Amway Arena.

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, an “MTV: Unplugged” set, has sold 138,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
