Pitbull will launch “The Bad Man Tour” with Prince Royce July 6 in California. The major summer outing will see the pair bringing their spirited Latin-tinged pop to Atlanta at 7 p.m. July 28 at Philips Arena.

Tickets for the show are $29.95-$139.95 and will go on sale at 10 a.m. May 14 via all Ticketmaster outlets,,, the venue box office or by calling 1-800-745-3000.

A pre-sale for American Express cardholders is available through 10 p.m. May 13.

Miami native Pitbull is known for his snappy attire as well as a string of Top 40 hits – many featuring other pop stars – including “Timber” (with Kesha), “Don’t Stop the Party” (with TJR), “Feel This Moment” (with Christina Aguilera) and this year’s “Bad Man” with Robin Thicke, Travis Barker and Joe Perry. The song comes from his upcoming 10th studio album, “Climate Change,” due June 3.

Pitbull last played the area in 2014 with a concert at Infinite Energy Center (then known as The Arena at Gwinnett Center).
