Ricky Martin Lines Up Fall U.S. Tour, Shoots New Video

Answering the prayers of ladies everywhere, Latin pop sensation Ricky Martin is hitting the road in October for a U.S. tour that kicks off in Miami.

The folks at Pepsi will be sponsoring the outing, which begins in Miami on October 21 and runs through late November. The first batch of tickets for the tour goes on sale on July 10, with additional tickets hitting the market on July 17.

The tour marks Martin's first in the States since achieving crossover success with his self-titled album. "Ricky Martin" debuted at number one on the "Billboard" album chart seven weeks ago and has gone on to sell some 2.5 million copies in the U.S.

If you can't make it to the tour, you'll be glad to learn that Martin headed to Los Angeles last week to shoot a new video with director Nigel Dick. The director, who's worked with the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears, shot the video for Martin's next single, the romantic ballad "She's All I Ever Had."
