Acclaimed hit-maker Timbaland made a name for himself in the music industry for his work behind the scenes, producing for artists like Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z and Madonna. But in the New Year, he’ll be hitting stages across North America with a tour of his own.

Over the course of three weeks, Timbaland will showcase his latest solo material in a dozen U.S. cities and one Canadian market. The early year trek kicks off January 15 at the NorVa in Norfolk, VA, and concludes February 3 at the House of Blues in Dallas, TX.

Other scheduled stops on the club tour include January 20 at the Fillmore in New York, NY; January 24 at the House of Blues in Chicago, IL; and January 29 at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA. The single gig north of the border is set for January 22 at Sound Academy in Toronto, ON.

The first ticket onsales for the tour began on Friday, December 18. Face values vary depending on the venue, with some prices as low as $23 for general admission tickets. However, most venues seem to be in the $32 to $47 range for Timbaland tickets.

Timbaland is supporting his third solo studio album, “Shock Value II,” which dropped on December 8.

The effort debuted on the most recent Billboard 200 chart in the No. 36 position, a slide from the No. 5 peak of 2007’s “Shock Value.” Despite his ability to churn out No. 1 hits for other artists, Timbaland’s personal performance on the charts has only been about average over the course of his solo career.

The producer, rapper and musician toured most recently with Chris Cornell, former frontman for Soundgarden and Audioslave. The pair worked together on Cornell’s most recent solo effort “Scream” and completed about 10 promotional performances for its release.
