Ricky Martin concert chronology

The Black and White Tour (Blanco y Negro Tour) was the worldwide concert tour by Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin, in support of his 2006 album MTV Unplugged. The tour visited the Americas and Europe.

About the tour[edit]

The show, directed for the stage by Jamie King included Ricky Martin's biggest hits, along with songs from his latest live album MTV Unplugged. The two-hour show was divided into four segments: tribal, romance, revolution and, rave.

The tour kicked off with four nights at the José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum in San Juan on February 9, 2007 and travelled to several countries in South and Central America.[1] The Latin American leg of the Black and White Tour wrapped up in late March in Mexico.

The North American leg started at HP Pavilion at San Jose on April 17, 2007.[2][3] It took Martin to arenas in 17 cities. Three shows from May 14–16 were cancelled (El Paso, Glendale and Albuquerque), after Martin suffered a lower back sprain during a show in Laredo.

In July 2007, Ricky Martin completed a series of sold-out arena dates in Europe, and announced the dates for a second American leg of his Black and White Tour. After playing in Puerto Rico and Mexico, the US portion of new run kicked off on September 29, 2007 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, and run through October 14, 2007. The last stop included the performance at the Madison Square Garden in New York City.[4] Ricky Martin was also the inaugural act who played at the new Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater on October 10–12, 2007.[5]
