The Mexican rock band Mana greets its U.S. fans again this spring on a new tour of some of the country’s major cities including New York, Miami, Chicago and Los Angeles.

The Mexican band’s public relations firm in the United States broke the news Thursday that it will stage 17 concerts between April 3 and May 11 on the anticipated Part 2 of its “Drama y Luz” (Drama and Light) tour.

Mana gets the show on the road with four appearances in the Lone Star State - in Hidalgo, Houston, Dallas and Laredo - before returning to New York City’s Madison Square Garden for an April 10 concert.

Two days later the band travels to Chicago and then west to California, where from April 17 to 27 it will give fans what they’ve been waiting for in Sacramento, Oakland, Fresno, San Diego and Los Angeles.

This will be the fab four’s 19th performance at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, which means that lead singer Fher Olvera, drummer Alex Gonzalez, guitarist Sergio Vallin and bassist Juan Callero will break the record for the most concerts in that arena where so many stars have appeared.

The Mexicans will also play in Denver, Colorado, and Glendale, Arizona, before returning to Texas, taking the stage this time in El Paso, San Antonio and Corpus Christie, while saving the spectacular finale of the group’s new U.S. tour for Miami on May 11.

Tickets for Mana’s U.S. swing will go on sale Feb. 3.

The band’s single “El Verdadero Amor Perdona” (True Love Forgives) topped the charts again this week for the most plays on U.S. radio.
