Charlie Sheen 'Violent Torpedo of Truth' tour kicks off in Detroit - See dates
Charlie Sheen is getting ready to take on the trolls and unleash his "Violent Torpedo of Truth/ Defeat is Not an Option" tour in Detroit on Saturday. The show is set to take place at the Fox Theatre, across Woodward Avenue from Detroit's baseball destination, Comerica Park.
The former "Tow and a Half Men" star will then embark on a 20-city tour that promises to include "the REAL story," and any other details of the show beyond that are few. What is known is that the show will last an hour and a half and feature guests, music and a multimedia presentation, according to the Associated Press.
Rapper Snoop Dogg will be there as will guitarist Rob Patterson, according to the wire service.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, two of Sheen's dates at Radio City Music Hall, the largest venue on his tour so far with 6,000 seats, have sold out. The price for the tickets for the April 8 and 10 shows ranged from $79.50 to $750, with the high-end tickets allowing fans to meet the actor.
The tour wraps up May 3 in Seattle after stops in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, New York, San Francisco and others. Sheen has said the Detroit show, where tickets cost $45 to $80, sold out.
"I am bringing 'My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option' show out to you in the battlefield," Sheen said in a video announcing the tour. "If you're winning, I'll see you there. Trolls need not apply & Buy your ticket. Take the ride. And the ride will take you."
Meanwhile, the actor is still embroiled in a legal battle with after production on the hit CBS comedy "Two and a Half Men" was halted in February soon after Sheen, 45, unleashed a slew of erratic on-air ramblings against its executives and weeks after he underwent treatment for alcohol and drug addiction. Sheen was axed from the series on March 7. He has since filed a lawsuit, demanding $100 million.
