CHARLIE SHEEN bombs as angry audience boos him off the stage at the Detroit preem of his delusional tour.
With all 4700 seats filled with fans and the just plain curious, Charlie Sheen took to the stage at Detroit's Fox Theatre, to thundering applause.
But it didn't take long for the crowd to turn against their former hero, and boo him loudly.
Saturday was opening night for the former Two and a Half Men star's "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option" tour, RadarOnline.com reported.
Sheen's former porn star pal Kacey Jordan was reportedly in the audience. His new pal Snoop Dogg was a wise no-show.
After a warm up act comic was booed, a series of random film clips were shown on giant monitors.
Around 9 PM TigerBlood Time (TM), Charlie actually started the show, anointing his audience as the "Warlock States of Sheen."
But this crowd wasn't buying his tired shtick, and they booed him, demanding their money back.
"I already got your money!" Sheen responded snidely.
As he attempted to woo the angry Detoiters with a clip starring Johnny Depp, more mass displeasure ensued.
With a livid aud screaming they wanted their money back, Sheen's Folly was deep sixed by 10:15 PM.
In the parlance of show biz bible, Variety, Sheen laid an egg. Bombed. Did a floperoo. Stunk up the place.
FYI: Ticketmaster has a strict "No refund" policy on the Sheen Expressway... to your wallet.
Q. How much coke had Charlie Sheen done?
I didnt mention “Blacks” anywhere in my post... you bein wacist
A. Enough to kill 2 and 1/2 men.
Seeing this is Detroit, I’m sure the phones at the WH were ringing off the hook with people calling their beloved Mr. Soetoro/Obama to ask for their money back, and I’m sure he’d find a way to give it to them. Afterall, most of them believe it is HIS money. sigh
so many Detroit area residents are welfare recipients...
Do they have welfare debit cards for entertainment?
Thats a good one.....lol
She probably still thinks he’s God.
Exactly. I bet most of the rest of the shows get cancelled for "personal reasons" or some type of rehab....and probably no refunds....idiots....
he’s an “actor”
not a writer... not a producer... not a singer
what did they think he was going to do that would be worth watching, let alone paying money for
were they there to watch him drink, have sex and do drugs?
” He also called Sarah Palin a whore. “
She’s been called worse. This week.
I know these things and more
but there's just one answer I'm still looking for
Who cut the cheese, who cut the cheese
I ask you please did you cut the cheese
I'm not adverse to learning
tell me why my eyes are burning
Who cut the cheese
“There was more booing, followed by disjointed videos and Charlie asking the audience what stories they wanted to hear.”
Yup. This man had no act prepared. He’s never been onstage before, he’s done standup. He does not know what he’s doing. Maybe he’ll wise up and hire some help to put a competent one man act together or maybe he just lost his audience. I figured this latest turn of his would go stale overnight. Does he have any friends or lovers he doesn’t pay for?
I would think they should be satisfied; they came to see an unbalanced, self-destructive man behaving badly and that’s what they got. Now they can honestly say they saw Charlie Sheen acting crazy. Wasn’t that the point?
Detroit, ah yes, that city full of intellectuals who gave us GM and Eminem. Who can question these people’s decisions?
NOW... thats funny...
You have to admit...this was a brilliant one time only brilliant business plan.
It will give him some crack money, anyway.
Since Detroit is such a hardcore union city with a horrible economy, the money they spend is often not directly out of their pocket...but distributed there from the taxpayers.
“Does he have any friends or lovers he doesnt pay for?”
I’m sure he can be very fun and entertaining in real life. That doesn’t always translate to the stage ...
Is it any wonder why Detroit is such an abysmal mess? The people have no power of discernment.
ahaaah yep....first a succession of great mayors then eminem and finally charley mr ‘icing on the cake’ himself...mmm mmm mmm
That’s odd. He is doing two Toronto shows since the first one sold out. Maybe the second one did too and Detroit still had seats available. The tour should add PT Barnum was right to its title.
I saw a taped and uploaded to Youtube video of his performance after I heard he was booed. I think “bombed” is an understatement. The truth is, anyone stupid enough to waste their money to see him deserves exactly what they got. They knew who he was when they bought the tickets. Either they were fans of him, or they were there to be entertained by someone they knew was having mental problems. Neither speaks highly of their characters.
ping for later
More than 15 minutes after the show inexplicably ended (ushers were literally vacuuming carpets), Charlie came back out on stage!
He greeted the approximately 500 remaining fans and took pics for two minutes. “Thank you all!” he said and then abruptly walked off. He seemed subdued and bummed out as security scrambled to get him off.
Morons have a nerve being mad about being ripped off. He had a couple of amusing tweets, that doesn’t translate into a successful stage show.
Reminiscent of Obama's voters, only Sheen's fan Club has the epiphany a bit quicker.
That makes Charlie's fans brighter than Obama's backers...
The fact that anyone would actually want to listen to this guy, let alone PAY to listen to him makes a very sad statement about our current culture.
“has the stability of a bag of rats in a burning meth lab”
Thanks dfu, additional:
Despite the disaster in Detroit last night, Charlie Sheen is moving on to Chicago for tonight’s performance ... sources connected with the show tell TMZ.
The way Charlie’s people see it ... it was just “one group of unruly people who started booing, and it became a mob-mentality situation.” One source groused, “They wouldn’t even let him finish a story,” adding “It wasn’t all bad and we’re looking forward to Chicago.”
Youtube videos are already available on the audiences response:(not) WINNING!!!
How much were the tickets?
HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa! I hear he’s going on the road with Bill Maher in the “WE CALL PEOPLE NASTY NAMES COMEDY TOUR!” It’s sold out in San Francisco.
If this happens to the Obama of actors, there may yet be hope...
Where's the surprise?
These are the same people who elected Obama.
And, apparently they have enough money to help the big "O" accumulate a $1 billion reelection fund.
God help us.
This from a guy who has a sex addition and hangs out with porn stars.
What a joke.
The man clearly has delusions, blaming others instead of himself for the disaster. He is surrounded by enablers.
Maybe he will realize that it's easier to be someone unintentionally funny than a professional comedian.
How can anyone complain about what they get when they pay money for a ticket to something like this?
