Charlie Sheen adds 12 more dates to live tour

2011-03-18 09:10

Los Angeles – Charlie Sheen’s Torpedo of Truth live tour will explode onto 12 more stages across the United States and into Canada, as reports surfaced yesterday of sold-out shows at New York’s Radio City Music Hall.

“Fastballs keep coming. 12 more shows on sale Sat.,” Sheen tweeted. The new shows for the tour, dubbed “Charlie Sheen’s Violent Torpedo of Truth Defeat Is Not an Option,” are also listed on sales website

New cities include Atlantic City, Tampa, Dallas, Houston and Denver in the United States, as well as Toronto and Vancouver in Canada, where his last show plays on May 2.

Already, shows are sold out in cities such as Detroit and at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, according to media reports.

Sheen, who was TV’s highest paid actor for his role as a skirt-chasing, heavy-drinking bachelor on No. 1-rated comedy Two And A Half Men, a role that loosely mirrored his life, has made headlines worldwide after having been fired from his job.

He has criticised the show’s makers and insulted producer Chuck Lorre by calling him “a stupid, stupid little man”, among other things.

Warner Bros Television, which makes the show, then fired him, and last week he sued both Warner Bros and Lorre for $100 million (more than R700 million), claiming he was wrongfully terminated.

For its part, Warner Bros has claimed in a letter to Sheen’s lawyer that the actor was engaged in “dangerously self-destructive conduct and appears to be very ill”.

Warner Bros said Sheen had difficulty remembering lines, could not collaborate and had poisoned key working relationships.

Not much is known about his show beyond the description on the Ticketmaster site, which reads: “Will there be surprises? Will there be guests? Will there be mayhem? Will you laugh? Will you scream? Will you know the truth? WILL THERE BE MORE?!?! This IS where you will hear the REAL story from the Warlock. Bring it. I dare you to keep up with me.”?
