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.

I admonish you to try an experiment.

Go up to a person, any person, and start a conversation about Charlie Sheen... and see where it goes. I guarantee you it will not end with Charlie Sheen but will meander onto subjects of psychology, sociology, politics, ethics, science and cosmology.

How is this? WHY is this?

Because Charlie Sheen is a fricken Warlock.

Charlie, stop. Please. Don't take your act on the road. Instead, stay home. Conserve your energy and perform for your only fan--go stand in front of a mirror.

Also note: CBS doesn't stand for Charlie's Ballistic Show.

Do we think Charlie will change anytime soon? Unless you're an experienced deep sea diver, don't hold your breath.

I like Charlie Sheen. I like his work, but he is going through one hell of a
midlife crises. I did the same when I was his age....had a phenomenal year in
South Florida....calling it a night by sun up, virtually every night.
Then reality set in. I found a better gig and moved on, which saved my life.
It was a blast....and if I had his kind of money, I would never have
survived it. IF he has any REAL friends, it's time for them to step up.
Otherwise Martin needs to do it, as difficult as that may be. He needs help!

No problem. There's other online newspapers.

A master stroke from the Rockstar from Mars! One can only imagine the scene backstage. Rock and Roll excess how it ought to be, not some AA going, Oprah apologizing used to bees. Let your freak flag fly Charles. Can my band open?

So, any takers on when Charlie Sheen is finally going to O.D?

Folks, let me give you the straight scoop on ole Charlie Sheen.

Now I'm sure he's strung out on gosh-knows-what but he's goofing on us for the most part. If this guy was truly in a dangerous decline, wouldn't we see friends, family members, etc. lining up outside the gates to his secured neighborhood PLEADING to talk to him? Wouldn't we see the same on television? Why are so many keeping their mouths shut?

Because they know this is mostly harmless fun at our all of our expense.

However, if he truly is in crisis mode and NO one (i.e. family members, co workers, ex wives, girlfriends, etc. or business associates) is reaching out, then hollywood, and those people part of it, are sicker and even more despicable than I thought.

What are you winning Charles?A nut job award!DA DA DA!Come on get off the dope,who you think you are fooling?ONLY YOURSELF!!!DA!ANYHOW,I WISH YOU WELL AND PRAY THAT YOU DO WIN,WHAT EVER IT IS YOU NEED TO WIN...I AM A FAN AND PRAY YOU TURN FROM YOUR EVIL WAYS...STOP...TURN TO JESUS..WITH HIM,YOU ARE ALWAYS A WINNER! PRIDE BEFORE THE FALL....I CERTAINLY WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU AND PRAY IT IS NOT TOO LATE...YOU DO NOT WANT TO O.D AND WAKE UP IN HELL.GET WELL SOON!!!

I wish for you health,stability and freedom from whatever ugly force that has possessed you..May the lord help you and save you Charles..may the good Lord help you and get well soon Charles....From some gal who truly cares

Charlie is clean all right. Could it be he is out of money? That's probably why he is hitting the road. To make more money to enable himself even more. To support his lifestyle/deathstyle! Wonder when he will burn out? Anger = burnout. No one this angry can keep truckin' for long. . . . He has, however , provided the only comic relief for a complete mid-east break down, civil war, right- wing union busting, earthquakes, tsunamis and possible total nuclear meltdown. And that's just this week.

This is getting worse!!! they NEED to get this man(Sheen) in a "strait jacket" and committed to a mental hospital for god knows how long,he's talking nonsense more and more and it's proof he has lost it. I still say, he's "loaded on cocaine" and that's what's happened to him..the way he's talking,the way he's acting, his looks are bad now, all of it is a sign of excessive cocaine abuse and they had better do something about it before it's too late. no matter if he refuses to go or not, he needs to be put in a strait jacket and carted off by force. and leave absolutely NOTHING to chance for him to try to hurt himself. doing this would more so result in a withdrawal from all the shi* that he's taking..and detoxify his system. the man has lost it,sadly. somebody better step in fast, for the sake of his kids,otherwise they'll lose their father fairly soon. lord help him.

I'm waiting for Charlie to start rubbing his hands together like some mad scientist..."it's alive"....but not his career, which is slowly sliding off into the abyss with any dignity he had. He somehow feels he's been wronged...CBS gave him 2 million dollars per half hour show...okay....they put up with his boozing, drugs, disrespect, moaning, and groaning for how long? He's like some spoiled rich kid that suddenly had a parent say to him, "no more". He's still one of the brat pack kids, one thing he needs to realize is that fame is a fickle mistress, ask the fallen ones, (rock stars, actors, actresses) who use to be at the top and are now nobodies. Just because they love you now Charlie, don't mean they'll love you later.

How they ended up paying this chump 1 million per episode is not only a travesty but completely obscene (rather like his behavior). He is nothing as an actor and in comparison to his father a sad little man.

I couldn't watch more than 1 minute of 2 & a 1/2 chumps before being nauseated. Please cancel this tripe immediately !

Actually, Charlie here is nowhere near as good an actor as Dubya was, and not even as batsh*t crazy. Yet we let that fratboy clown lead us into two fake wars of aggression costing trillions, not to mention the millions of innocents killed. Madness indeed.

Well I heard Dr Drew make some insightful commentary about Charlie on TV a couple of times. He knows what he's talking about of course, but I think he didn't connect the dots regarding, if Charlie does in fact have a tendency towards addiction, and I can tell he's manic because I have bipolar as well, what you then have is an addiction to mania.

I have manic depression also, and I actually understand the bizarre statements Charlie makes while he is in his "separate reality"of full blown mania.

I'm supportive of Charlie's madness, but also leery that when he returns to normal reality, if he does, that he may regret some consequences. So I feel sorry for him that he has to bear the spotlight while he is going through his episode. Unless, in the long run, he really does prefer to be manic as often as possible. It's amazing he can be manic for so long and not end up in a psychiatric hospital like I did the last two times out of three times that I've been manic.


Charlie sweetie,

Hi from Ireland. I hear your anxiety and we all feel for you - you gave us an outlet from the mundanity of day to day life with your wonderful show. It is clear you are a kind warm hearted person - i know it's difficult for you to see the woods from the trees - but don't lose your humanity and your sense of humility through cocaine, surrounded by people who have low self esteem.

You have children you adore - it's clear your dad and brother love you for who you are - submit to rehab clear your head of drugs - and get back on top again.

I believe in you and like everyone else - i love you for who you are naturally without the drugs....the real you is a great guy.....

So pull it together Charlie - you can do it.

God bless we love you lots

for goodness sake, all the judgers, finger pointers, diagnosers, professionals, haters --- charlie sheen is a comedian, an actor, a cool guy and is working very strategically to his advantage.

he is not sick or addicted, or in need of rehab, he knows exactly what he is doing - if i lived in the states, i would go - he knows the truth about him and his life - nobody else.

people just can't handle his truth and his reality so they judge it, so they say hes troubled - no hes not - u think he is but he doesnt, hes on to it, knows exactly what he is doing.

remember this is CHARLIE SHEEN........ not CHARLIE HARPER....

Go charlie!

I'm sick of reading about that druggie Sheen. He needs to grow-up and quit being a jerk, we are sick, sick of him.

*** The only thing that will happen is people will buy said tickets and he will either not show, get locked up med. fac../jail or kill himself.... with 3 of those have him making money and tickets holders hoping to get reimbursed....This won't end well, it hasn't so far...
