Last night, Charlie Sheen took over Detroit, Michigan with his first of many live tour from the FOX Theater. According to those who attended the event, people were booing Sheen, who only actually appeared on the stage once. By the looks of it, he better hope the upcoming shows that have sold out in minutes are nonrefundable. And, if he wants to stay employed and get more money off of the future shows, he better hope he does better at his upcoming live events.
Before the show went on the air, Sheen took to his Twitter account and posted the following: ”#TruthTorpedo The moment of truth is upon us Detroit!! Do not fear…the Sheenius is here!” Unfortunately for Sheen, though, his show bombed at the FOX theater. You know it’s not good when you are booed, people are leaving the building and people are chanting “refund, refund, refund”.
In defense of Sheen, the show initially went off well where Sheen had a question-and-answer session with the fans, answering questions from his favorite porn stars to questions about his cocaine use. He then aired a bunch of different clips for about 30 minutes he did with different journalists over the past few weeks. At that point, though, the crowd was not on the side of Sheen. He called out Simon Rex for backup, and he started rapping for Sheen, even playing his new rap, “Winning”. Snoop Dogg is the one that recorded the song for Sheen, although he couldn’t make it to the show because he was at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
Sheen was set to earn about $7.5 million a month from the gig if tickets continued to sell at the rate that they did, but the reviews for the initial show are not very favorable, which may make potential ticket buyers in the future leery about buying a ticket. If Sheen wants to stay employed, he better find a way to make the show more entertaining, and fast.
