Latin-pop sensation Ricky Martin will embark on a 27-city U.S. tour June 9 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
After two shows in Florida, the flamboyant singer will head up the East Coast before cutting across the country, finishing up July 27 in Portland, Ore., according to a publicist.
Martin was nominated for four Grammy Awards this year, including Record of the Year, for "Livin' la Vida Loca" (RealAudio excerpt), and Pop Album of the Year, for his self-titled English-language debut, released last spring.
The former Menudo singer was not called to the stage for any honors at the Feb. 24 ceremony in Los Angeles, but he did perform a spectacular rendition of "Maria" (RealAudio excerpt of album version), backed by acrobatic and pyrotechnic stunts.
This will be Martin's second major tour of the U.S. The first, last fall, sold out quickly, prompting promoters to add more dates.
