  • Charlie Sheen booed off stage in live debut

    DETROIT, Michigan (AFP) – Troubled US actor and Internet sensation Charlie Sheen lay low Sunday after being booed off stage in a chaotic start to a live show mini-tour.

    Sheen maintained an uncharacteristic silence on his Twitter feed after fans walked out of his "Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is not an Option" debut show in Detroit on Saturday night.

    "It was the worst thing I've ever seen in my entire life," said Jennifer Pyryt, 26, after fans streamed out of the Fox Theater, many of them booing and doing thumbs-down signs. "The show was horrible."

    Thirteen hours after the show, his last tweet remained the one he made live during the show, with a picture of the audience, saying: "The most honest city in the world honors the most honest man in the universe."

    Ten minutes after that the show collapsed, when a clearly rattled Sheen -- who was sacked from his mega-hit TV show "Two and a Half Men" last month -- failed to return to the stage after a musical break.

    Critics were scathing. "A cynical attempt to cash in on his craziness," said the Hollywood Reporter, calling it a "poorly planned show filled with faux-Biblical preaching and extended video clips."

    "Charlie Sheen live: what WAS that?" asked the Entertainment Weekly, after a blow-by-blow blog of the show, which lasted barely an hour.

    The gig, to a packed 5,000-strong audience, started well with a spoof involving news clips of the actor's recent outbursts, and high-action excerpts from classic movies including "Apocalypse Now," starring his father Martin.

    Sheen's two nubile "goddesses," with whom he lives, also won applause for kissing each other passionately.

    But the boos began during a stream-of-consciousness monologue by Sheen at a presidential podium -- the kind of verbal fireworks he has displayed online, but which patently failed to grip Saturday's audience.

    "I don't think it was put together very well," added Mary, 41, saying things were not helped when the unpredictable Sheen tried to make a joke about Detroit's reputation.

    The act might have gone over a bit, better she said, "if he had not mentioned Detroit as a crack town, or the stealing of cars... He turned a lot of people off."

    After commenting several times on the fact that he was being booed, and getting increasingly tetchy as the stream of people walking out grew, Sheen said would take a break while a video of a new Snoop Dogg was played.

    When the video finished, the lights came up, and it was clear that Sheen was not coming back on stage.

    Sheen was sacked last month from "Two and a Half Men" after criticizing its producers in a series of rambling media outbursts which Warner Brothers called the actor "dangerously self-destructive conduct."

    The 45-year-old then became an Internet sensation after launching a Twitter feed which now has 3.4 million followers, and an online webstreamed show, "Sheen's Korner."

    At the same time he announced his plans for the live tour, which now has more than 20 scheduled dates over the next month, after tickets for the first gigs sold out within 18 minutes.

    Before Saturday's show fans had lined up to defend the star, a legendary party animal whose recent crisis came shortly after he ended up in hospital following a marathon bender with five women including a porn actress.

    But the mood afterwards was a mixture of disappointment and anger, with some fans talking about asking for their money back.

    "Charlie's a big fraud. It was unbelievable, it was the worst show I've seen in my life," said another man, declining to give his name, as he and other headed off into the night.

    Sheen's next show was due Sunday evening in Chicago.

        I can believe some idiots paid to see him in the first place.
        This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

                  This is hard to watch but you can see how messed up he is, I don't know much about what people are like while on drugs but I think he is on something. I was sure his show would be just babble.




                  It won't be long before we are talking about his death, he will OD, kill himself or drink himself to death, unless he gets help now.

                      No s**t! He is an idiot, and they are idiots to pay to see him. Who would do that? It was sold out too, WTF!?!

                        And you think the rock-n-roll artist (or rapppers) are coherent?..I'm sure some have had bad concerts b/c they were really messed up...

                        We just look the other way b/c we like their porduct/music...



                        Sheen is a hot mess...He's probably going to buy tickects and pay "supporters" to be in the audience...I can see him doing that, he's a class A ego-maniac...

                        People are dishing out serious cash to go to his show, I though we were in a recession or is it a depression...

                          He's gone beyond funny to really sad, IMHO. I agree with JS, it won't be long before he's dead. And, I don't think he's "acting" as Exodus put it. He's a break down waiting on the right place to happen.

                          I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

                            That guy should have a DOT placard on him.

                            I hope he is the only casualty when he goes...
