Charlie Sheen's 'Torpedo of Truth' tour expands again
While there are still no details about exactly what former "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen plans to actually do onstage during his upcoming live tour, he'll be doing it in a dozen more cities, he announced Thursday afternoon via Twitter. The extension will keep him on the road for about a month, starting with shows in Detroit (April 2) and Chicago (April 3).
"My Violent Torpedo of Truth / Defeat is Not an Option" had been a mostly Northeast and Midwest-bound show. But dates in Toronto and Vancouver expand the self-proclaimed "warlock's" reach into Canada, while a southern swoop will include several spots in Florida and Texas, along with Atlanta. He'll make his way in late April to Denver and then San Francisco.
Is it surprising that there are no Los Angeles dates yet?
The tour extension will take Sheen to the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City after he hits Radio City Music Hall not once but twice next month. Tickets for those shows seem to be selling briskly, according to the Ticketmaster website, with prices starting at about $100 and skyrocketing to about $750 for a VIP package that includes front-of-the-house seating, a "meet and greet" with Sheen, handshakes, photographs and branded swag. (For those prices, shouldn't there be a little tiger blood thrown in there too?)
Do the math, Show Trackers -- how many stops will Sheen need to make "Two and a Half Men" kind of scratch? And how do you think he will entertain his ever-multiplying audiences?
