Mike Tyson is getting his act together and taking it on the road.

The renowned boxer and stage veteran will embark on a national tour with his Spike Lee-helmed one-man show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, beginning in February 2013.

Tyson will chew audiences' ears off during the course of the 10-week tour, which kicks off February 12-13 at the Murat Theatre in Indianapolis, Indiana, before stopping in 35 other cities, including Chicago and Washington, D.C.

James L. Nederlander, who presented the work at Broadway's Longacre Theatre in the summer of 2012, serves as the tour's producer.

While Tyson doesn't perform his acclaimed rendition of "One Night in Bangkok" during the solo show, he does take audiences on a journey from his poverty-filled childhood in Brooklyn to the many highs and lows of his boxing career, while exploring his personal and business relationships with former manager Don King, fellow fighter Mitch Green, and ex-wife Robin Givens, among others.
