CHICAGO (CBS/WBBM) — Tickets to Charlie Sheen’s one-man show in Chicago, and another one in Detroit, sold out in just 18 minutes over the weekend.
Little is known about the show, billed as “Charlie Sheen Live: My Violent Torpedo of Truth.” The Chicago engagement is set for Sunday, April 3, at 8 p.m. at the Chicago Theatre.

The tickets, which went on sale at noon saturday, were priced from $49 to $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 more recently, a search of his home for firearms by Los Angeles police.
Sheen apparently wrote the strange description of the show himself for the Ticketmaster Web site.
“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. “This IS where you will hear the REAL story from the Warlock. Bring it I dare you to keep up with me.”
Producers say more shows may be added elsewhere around the country. Sheen says he will donate part of the proceeds to relief for the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
