Tattoo a frown on your face, Iron Mike fans: Mike Tysons one-man show, Undisputed Truth -- originally scheduled for April 21 at Ovens Auditorium -- has been canceled.
Weak ticket sales seem to be the culprit.
Said producer James L. Nederlander: "I am huge supporter of Mike and this compelling show. Unfortunately tickets sales in certain markets did not support the scope of the tour originally planned, and we've pulled back in a few markets. The tour is still traveling to numerous cities. Mike has been the consummate professional, and I'm proud to bring Mike's talent and story around the country.
The Champ himself put an even greater spin on the situation:
"Due to circumstances beyond my control," Tyson said, "certain cities on my Undisputed Truth tour have been canceled. I am so appreciative of my fans and all of my supporters. I sincerely apologize to anyone that was inconvenienced by these cancellations. I was looking forward to doing a great show for you and hope at a later date that I am still able to do so."
Refunds are available at point-of-purchase locations.
