Charlie Sheen kicks off live tour: The 'My Violent Torpedo of Truth / Defeat Is Not an Option Show'

Sheen Not content to simply broadcast "Sheen's Korner" from Sober Valley Lodge, Charlie Sheen has announced that he's going out on the road with a live tour he's dubbing the "My Violent Torpedo of Truth / Defeat Is Not an Option Show."

On Thursday, Sheen tweeted that he'll kick off the tour on April 2 at Fox Theatre Detroit. Under "show details," Ticketmaster lists this description, which looks like it was written by Sheen himself:

"My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option Show is coming for you. 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?!?! 
This IS where you will hear the REAL story from the Warlock. Bring it. I dare you to keep up with me."

This has been another rough week for the actor, who was axed from "Two and a Half Men," filed a $100-million lawsuit against Warner Bros. and "Men" co-creator Chuck Lorre, and had his house raided by the LAPD.

Hi, if you have so much money why don't you help with the Jap earthquake help the people that really need it, in stead of porns, and women who sell their body's HELLO,? p.s. I really did enjoy watching two and half men, so sad that its over.

Personally I can't wait to see Charlie in Person. He is a Comedian First, and an Actor Second. You will see he will be himself and in perfect harmony of the audience. He knows who really feeds him, the Paying Audience. I'm sorry for CBS, because Charlie will get close to the People and soon they will side with Charlie. When Charlie's Fans stop watching CBS in Protest, Then CBS will Listen and Pay the Man, because he is that Good. The Paying Public is never Wrong.
Go Get em Charlie,
Your our Man,
Chris Gotcha
Charlie Sheen Tees $500

Charlie forgot to ask if there will be men in white coats.

Why, pray tell, would I pay to see Sheen embarrass himself and commit career suicide, when I can see it every night, for free, just by turning on the evening news?

Now the CBS executives can put that money to better use.

Real winners don't need to keep repeating the word. Only failures need to repeat the word over & over like a self-help mantra.

BEWARE OF COMMENTS which have clearly been posted by people who are Charlie's payroll.

Oh geez, this is not going to end well.

Hey, Martin, why haven't you had your boy put in a care facility by now? He is certainly showing ample signs that he is a danger to himself and to others. Step up, dad. Do the right thing for your son.

Chris Gotcha - so there are still some taken in with this half a man. Interesting. To me he's a wife abuser first, a drug addict second, a narcistic bore third, fourth and fifth. The only funny thing about Charlie Sheen is that he still thinks he's winning.

Clearly people with delusions have also posted comments here. The man needs psychiatric help, medication. Anyone who has been around, or has a family member with Bipolar condition can recognize the signs of the various degrees in manic episodes. It's sad to see and hear those enablers that continue to "go along with the ride" instead of getting him professional help. If he doesn't get help soon, this will not have a Hollywood ending.

Ah, winning anyone? Let's remember, WB knew he was "insane" and still put him on the air for years, even supported his antics... Now they fire him for the same grounds that they put up with? The same grounds that made the show great? They will lose... And I also don't beleive this is an insane burst into crazyiness... He's pulling the phoenix 'I'm Still here.' Except he's doing it right. And he's going to make millions and millions of dollars in the process... and revive the movie career. He knows what he's doing... and he is WINNING.

Charlie... everyone in lower Michigan lives under a bridge (aka a 'troll')!
Upper and Lower Michigan are separated by a bridge, and everyone in Lower Michigan is known as "living under the bridge" aka a 'troll'. Keep that in mind when you are insulting us 'trolls' (or is it the losers you are insulting... so hard to keep track since you have insulted so many groups of people lately!)
Good luck in your endeavors, charlie, not sure what to expect anymore, but pretty sure I'll be seeing you in the funny papers.

Hey, Jacquoline!! FIRST COMMENT ON THE BOARD... You want to call him out for not donating to earthquake victims? How about you don't sound like a complete racist in the process... "Jap," as you put it... is not the preferred nomenclature.

This guy is a certified wing-nut like his goofy 'ol man, Martin Sheen. Clearly, the apple didn't fall too far from the tree in their nut farm.

Charlie Sheen has completely lost it. And when he get's "it" back and realizes how insane he's been acting, it'll take years to recover from that embarrassment. So glad his kids won't be exposed to him for a while...

Charlie is irrelevant - if he was a teenager I would give him the benefit of the doubt and give him time to get through puberty and his idenity crisis. He will be one of the absurd memories we have of early 2011 while the rest of the world is attempting to make a difference.

is he crazy or what? this man is going to kill someone and hopefully it won't be one of his children. My God Warners and Chuck go get him, and make your law suit 5 times higher. If you give in to him you will be making fools out of yourselfs and showing the world that you can yell and the studios will give you anything you want. You will be opening doors you will wish you never opened.
Remember this man is nuts. He is replaceable.

Wow, who's big idea was this? He must really need the money. People foolish enough to buy a tix will either walk out in droves or be sitting there waiting for the guy to show up. If he sells any tix. I hope people in Detroit have better things to do. I'm sorry, but was Two and A Half Men really that great? I watched it once and it was just another cliched sitcom to me. What exactly was so great about Sheen? Cryer is the funnier guy, better actor.

I think that Charlie Sheen would be great in the role of Richard M. Nixon. He is a natural, just look at him!

Shut up, Charlie. You are not that important. Please stop wasting space in our newspaper.
