In the case of Charlie Sheen, never has WINNING been more about complete and total defeat. It would appear defeat is an option.
Question One … who is more insane and on crack, Charlie Sheen or the people who actually thought it was a good idea to send this unstable and off the wall clown out on stage in a live tour? We are awaiting your answers.
Question Two … who is foolish enough to part with their money and actually pay to see Charlie Sheen in the first place?
As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Charlie Sheen opened his Violent Torpedo of Truth Tour in Detroit, MI at the Fox Theater on Saturday night before an adoring crowd. Needless to say, it did not take long for a adoration to turn to boos, heckling and folks walking out. As people started booing, Sheen responded by saying, “I already got your money, dude!” Let this be a lesson to people thinking about buying tickets in the future.
First the U.S. automaker recession, and now this. Charlie Sheen unleashed his Violent Torpedo of Truth Tour on the Motor City on Saturday night before a crowd that greeted the actor with an adoring standing ovation and concluded with booing and walk-outs. The padded and disjointed show was a hodgepodge of video clips and Sheen-isms that felt hastily assembled and misjudged the patience of even the hardest of hardcore fans.
As the Daily Caller opines, “There’s one born every minute, and nobody’s more glad than Charlie Sheen.” All I can say after watching the VIDEO’s and reading the accounts of the disastrous Sheen exploits, please tell me that no one who actually bought a ticket to watch this mess actually votes.
The reviews of the show were disastrous as seen at Entertainment Weekly. Just a thought, was there ever a doubt that they would not be? Did people who went to see an out of control, drugged on Charlie Sheen drinking Tiger’s Blood actually think that what they were going to witness was going to be good?
For those who purchased tickets and continue to, consider yourself lemmings and additional confirmation that there really is a sucker born every minute.
UPDATE I: As reported at Big Hollywood, Charlie Sheen calls Sarah Palin a “whore” in his show. Wow Charlie, call that “winning”? For some one who claims he is so different and outside the mainstream, you appear to be nothing more than a lemming yourself. How original, attacking a wife and mom by calling her a derogatory name. You are losing again.
How long before Live Nation pulls the plug? I’d say, not long, because what they don’t want is an avalanche of ticket refund requests and cancellations in every city. Bad publicity in one city is one thing, but tonight is Chicago and by Friday Sheen is supposed to play Radio City Music Hall.
