New York - Lock up your ears — Mike Tyson's coming to a theatre 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, DC.

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.
