Charlie Sheen Coming To Chicago For One-Man Show

CHICAGO (CBS/WBBM) — Now that Charlie Sheen has been fired from “Two and a Half Men,” the actor is going on tour – and coming to Chicago.

As WBBM Newsradio 780’s Dave Berner reports, Sheen calls his tour “My Violent Torpedo of Truth,” and the show is scheduled for the Chicago Theatre on Sunday, April 3, at 8 p.m.

Tickets are expected to go on sale this weekend. They cost as much as $84.

Sheen was fired after a series of strange radio and TV interviews in which he ripped into the show’s producers.

Since then, he has been making tabloid headlines on a daily basis with remarks about “tiger’s blood” and “Adonis DNA,” a custody battle for his children with estranged wife Brooke Mueller, and most recently, a search of his home for firearms by Los Angeles police.

It’s not clear what the show will be about, but Ticketmaster suggests a one-man act that includes laughs and more ranting from Sheen.

“I’m going on the road. LIVE. Will there be surprises? Will there be guests? Will there be mayhem? Will you ask questions? Will you laugh? Will you scream? Will you know the truth? WILL THERE BE MORE?!?!” reads the Ticketmaster description for the show, apparently written by Sheen himself. “This IS where you will hear the REAL story from the Warlock. Bring it I dare you to keep up with me.”

  • bob

    we should all make sure it stays a one-man show…..DON’T GO!

    • Roberta Waker

      Amen to that. Anyone that pays to see him is enabling him to continue his addiction and psychotic tirades. He needs to get help NOW, not go on tour.

    • Evergreen Park

      Agreed. Please Chicago let’s show this Hollywood narcissist that we have far too much class to give this guy a single hard-earned penny.

  • John

    Although it might be pretty amusing, I’d rather give $84 to a h9meless person.

    • Gina

      John, hope you actually do this.

  • Frank

    EVERYONE likes a “train wreck”……he’ll sell out within hours……..

    • gina

      yep agreed!

  • Gina

    Confused….April 4th is Monday – Sunday is the 3rd. Which is correct?

    • Roberta Waker

      It says Sunday, April 3rd. Why are you confused??? Will you be one of the idiots that are going to see him “perform”?

      • Gina

        Wow Ms. Roberta Walker….- nice comment. Are you texting from your anger management class that is obviously not working?

    • gina

      The original writing of the article had the date wrong, so, no, Ms. Roberta, I am not an idiot. Just a careful reader. But thanks so much, ROBERTA, for the rude comments. You are such a beautiful person! I’ll bet you have a a lot of people in your life who just simply adore you They are so lucky! Have a great weekend, you ray of sunshine, you!

      • Jeff

        Should be more people like Gina in this world , Mrs Walker is just a angry old biddy with nothing better to do then pick on people, don’t let her get to you . Have a great week-end .

      • gina

        Thanks, Jeff, you, too!

      • Roberta Waker

        The article DID say Sunday, April 3rd and I couldn’t figure out why you were confused and the fact that you were so concerned made it appear that you were going to actually pay to see this addict. In my opinion, people that will pay to see him are idiots and I am entitled to my opinion just like you are. There was no anger in my comment – I was just being facetious. Please have a nice weekend anyway. And, the name is WAKER and I’m in my 30’s so that blows the angry old biddy theory out of the water.

  • Frank

    No one should pay to see this 1 car accident know as Charlie Sheen happen. But like so many people do, they will pay to watch as he goes through the guard rail and fall down the 1000 ft cliff. What a joke this guy has become.

  • Bruce Alan Beal

    It’s tempting to go just to throw tomatos and get tossed out.

  • Emilio Estavaz

    It is going to be a one man show, he will be the only one there.

  • Martin Sheen

    Now boys stop fighting.

  • Charlie Sheen

    I Hate You, I Hate You!!!

    • Martin Sheen

      Now, Charlie, shame on you! That’s NOT winning!!

    • Rob

      Same to you, jack ass. People are suffering all over the world and you had it all and let us down. Just go away Charlie. You will do us all a favor.

  • Scott

    Even worse than seeing the wreck are those that support him in his delusional world. Expect the place to be filled with people who identify with Sheen. Hope there is police on hand outside.

    Of course he won’t have much time for this as he will be soon starring in blockbuster motion pictures…He claims. Aside form Young Guns I don’t remember even one good film from Sheen. No wonder he took a TV gig. i doubt Hollywood will be beating down his door now.

    • Roberta Waker

      Those that support him are enabling him and are as responsible for his addictions and behavior as he is. They are just too dumb to figure it out.

      • gina

        And you’re an expert? Seriously?

      • jeff

        Come on Roberta lighten up, if people want to go see him let them . Your starting to sound like Charlie …

    • Frank44

      Wall Street

  • Go away

    It should be a 1/2 man show because he is a half wit. Please Charlie kill yourself and give us relief. I promise not to waste my time at your funeral. I will leave that to the totally pathetic people who follow your every misguided move. Get out of my life.

    • KeepUp

      What a pathetic human being you must be to encourage someone to kill themselves. Just remember when you least expect it, your ill will comes back on you. I am sure you will not be missed “Go Away”.

  • mindalina

    Maybe he will do us all a favor and jump off of the Willis Tower.

  • JEFF Gates

    Well if he brings the godeses I’m in , hook line and sinker baby …….

  • Blago

    Good for him!! Let him cash in!!!

  • Dan

    Scott-Did you forget about the Vietnam classic Platoon?

    Charlie has to do this-he probably blew all his money on coke and hores!
    (mispelled on purpose to trick the censor)

  • He Still a Great Actor

    he was great in Platoon ! Lets not foget for those who watched 2 1/2 men, His character is much like his real life, why is there a problem ??? take him for what he is……

  • JEFF

    He’s really not a bad guy, just a little mis-guided !

  • Lori

    Charlie Sheen needs major help by someone that will step up and not worry about will he get sued or will he not love me anymore. This man is Bi Polar by far and if his family, friends , interviewers or lawyers can’t see this then they should all be ashamed. He is going to not only hurt himself but those that are around him. When left untreated like this for this long there are major effects that no one understands unless you have been through it. I wish just one would stand up and do what is right instead of taking advantage of the “train wreck” and selling stories and padding their own checking accounts.

    • jeff

      Are you a psycologist ? you can’t help someone that doesn’t want to be helped . I think they already tried a intervention ……………………. Hello ..

      • Lori

        you don’t need to be a doctor and interventions don’t work with Bi polar people, he parents or one of his ex wives can commit him on a 3 day hold and as anyone that has been around a Bi polar person knows and just watching Sheen himself knows they can’t keep it together for that long of time.
        No i’m not a doctor but I had lived with a Bi Polar spouse for 18 yrs and have been thru it all. You all see what Brittany’s parents did for her by stepping in and going againts her will and right. Sheen’s parents and friends can learn something from them…………………. HELLO

  • jeff

    Gina your welcome….

    • Roberta Waker

      Seems there is a romance starting with Jeff and Gina. They think alike, they talk alike, maybe they even look alike. Good luck, guys. Have a good week end and may you live long and prosper.

      • Roberta Waker

        I am married to the world’s most wonderful man and maybe that’s why Charlie Sheen upsets me so much. He is throwing away precious time with people he is supposed to love. Life is way too short to throw away on addictions. My comments weren’t intended to hurt anyone, but some replies were vicious and angry. Anyway, this isn’t about me – this area is for comments and it seems to have gotten a little too personal already. Let’s try to keep comments to the story at hand, please. Ok?

      • jeff

        Maybe you could use a little romance , then you would be nicer to people .. Amen …

  • acer

    You People are Pathetic ! …….. It seems you all forgot that
    It would be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle before a rich man can enter Heaven…….He made his bed by his OWN FREE WILL ! Do you know what Free will is…? Now you to feel sorry for him….He made the wrong choice and doesn’t want to change at all because if he did he would show some kind of remorse….He is riding the Devils wings and flying High….Good luck my friend, Hope you find God before you leave this Planet…Have a nice Day .

    • gina

      Ahh, yes, the Bible….I think there is a little ol’ verse in there that goes something like this: “Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone.”

      • Rob

        There is also another bible verse. “You shall have no other gods before Me’” “You shall not make for yourself an idol,” You shall not commit adultery.” “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor” Just for a few. We’re all sinners, but right now he is leading the pack.

      • jeff

        Gina you rock…

  • jeff

    Mrs Walker kind of apologized , so maybe she’s okay ,,, Still didn’t like her tone and picking on us like that wasn’t nice…

    • Gina

      LOL! Jeff, thanks for the support and have a great weekend!

      • Jeff

        Any time , that was kind of fun ,, you and me think alike , Mrs Walker is right for once..Your okay … People are funny

  • Rob

    DON’T SUPPORT THIS IDIOT. HE LET US ALL DOWN AND NEEDS TO GO HOME WITH HIS TAIL BETWEEN HIS LEGS. DON’T SUPPORT ANY THEATER EITHER THAT HAS HIM. Charlie Sheen is a rat and a traitor to CBS. Let’s forget him until he begs for forgivness.

    • Roberta Waker

      You are soooo right. We need more people like you and maybe he will get the help he so desperately needs.

  • streamwood bill

    He might just die on tour! Booze and 8-balls will do it,
