Maná will begin the second U.S. leg of the Mexican rock band’s 2011-2012 world tour in April with stops at major venues from Los Angeles’ Staples Center to NYC’s Madison Square Garden Arena.

The group, which hails from Guadalajara, is touring in support of its eighth studio album, Drama y Luz. The album has already snagged 2011 Latin Grammy Awards for best rock album and best engineered album and is up for a 2012 award for best Latin pop, rock or urban album.
