Last Updated: 375 days ago
NEW YORK - Lock up your ears -- Mike Tyson's coming to a theater near you.
The former champion boxer and convicted rapist will take his one-man show "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" on a three-month tour to more than a dozen cities, including Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Detroit and Washington, D.C.
The two-hour show, directed by Spike Lee and written by Tyson's wife, Kiki, debuted in Las Vegas and had a limited run on Broadway this summer. The tour starts in Indianapolis in February.
The show traces Iron Mike's rise from violent street hood in Brooklyn to a fearsome athlete. Then comes the fall -- prison inmate, tabloid target, cocaine and Evander Holyfield's delicious ear. There are stories about first wife Robin Givens, promoter Don King and Brad Pitt.
Tyson's show will arrive in San Diego on March 5, 2013, at the San Diego Civic Theatre.
