Charlie Sheen Booed In Detroit Tour Appearance

Charlie Sheen may be all about “winning”, but he failed to win over the crowd, at his first stop in his tour in Detroit, Michigan.

His “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option” tour may have started and ended, on the same night, since he was booed and jeered during the performance.

Sheen thought Detroit was a good place to tell cocaine stories but this paragraph from the AP story says it was not a good idea:

Sheen, known for his wild partying and rampant drug use, said he thought Detroit would be a good place to tell some stories about crack cocaine. The remark prompted loud, immediate boos.

One audience member who booed was told by Sheen “I’ve already got your money dude”. This can’t bode well for the rest of the tour (if it even continues on to Chicago today) since fans are less likely to spend their money to see Sheen.

The Stub Hub website shows the tickets to his remaining 19 shows are selling well. I have a feeling a lot of these fans will either ask for their money back, or the shows will be cancelled.

If the Chicago show receives the chilly reception the Detroit show did, we look for the tour to come to an early, screeching halt.

Anyone reading this article, is not likely to want to buy any of the remaining unsold tickets, to future shows.

P.T. Barnum was right when he reportedly stated that “that there is a sucker born every minute” and 5,100 of them showed up last night, in Detroit, at the Charlie Sheen show.
