Tickets Sell Out Fast For Charlie Sheen’s Show

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.

    The Truth…something is wrong with you. If they want to go to his show let them. I am not sure if you are a smart person yourself…Get a life.

    • The Truth

      Something is wrong with me?? Why, because I’m pointing out the simple fact that “sheep” are helping to support this junkie that likes to batter women?? He’s a great example to his children also. Enjoy the show!

        I guess the sicker and crazier you are, the more people want to see you. I can find better ways to spend $84 than enabling a wife beating drug/alcoholic with a sex problem. But that’s only me.

  • Kelly

    Wow. The only people more desperate than Charlie Sheen are those who threw their hard-earned money away on these tickets. Hope he lives long enough to fill the bill.

  • Dkay

    This goes to show how stupid and unintelligent our society is. With all the problems everyday people have to deal with, what idiot would pay good money to see someone who doesn’t respect women, is a druggie and alcoholic? In fact, his act is getting old. He is real sick and is in denia. Just ask his father.l

    • Spoon

      The same people that pay far more to go watch sports stars with the same issues each week?

  • Had enough

    note to terrorists: We do not want you to blow up our cities and our people. However, if you really need to do it let me suggest a time and place where you will actually be doing some good. The Charlie Sheen whatever.

  • Southside

    I’m disappointed in our city. I wonder what Royko would say?

  • Lew

    It sucks that Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Brittany Murphy and Heath Ledger are all dead while Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan are still alive.

  • Kat V

    Charlie Sheen is a comic genius who is spiraling out of control and headed for a certain death without intervention. I have to admit, I am very curious to see what will come of his shows but I am also very disappointed that our society supports enabling such an extreme addict. This teaches our children that if they want fame & fortune, anything goes and the wilder, the better. I wish we had a news source that would allow us to watch important news, and leave out the Hollywood gossip.

  • Dont Miss This One

    I hear that as a just added bonus for ticket holders, the great Tony Clifton a comic genius in his own right, will be covering the warm up part of the show. We have not heard much from Tony as of late, he had mostly retired after Andy Kaufman’s untimely death but now he is back!!!. Charlie and Tony will make a wonderful pair of boobs that we all will forget shortly after the show. See you there, or as Tony would say, BLAH BLAH BLAH.

  • I Am Tony Clifton Don't Forget It

    I smell perfume, Lady is that you, what are you trying to cover up huh, that time of the month or what???. One of my classics.

  • Vicky

    People at this show are the same people that voted for Obama.


    this show will be canceled, at this time charlie will be going into rehab one more time. he is a strong supporter of the mexican drug cartels. they make a lot of money from charlie and his fans who contribute by buying tickets to this show. yes charlie will use your money to buy more drugs. he will die of a drug overdose partly with your money. you are also helping the drug cartels indirectly. you are driving the car in a robbery.
