What started out as two curious showdates in the midwest is now a legitimate tour. Charlie Sheen has now scheduled 20 shows as part of his My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Death is Not an Option Tour that will take him across the continent, from New York to San Francisco. And as Sheen proudly announced on Twitter, his shows are selling out. But what exactly is the show? Will it simply be a live version of Sheen’s pained and panned webcast? Who knows? Sheen’s promotional pitch is nothing but enigmatic: “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.”
Before you wonder who’s willing to plunk down as much as $100 to see Sheen “win” in person, recall that more than 82,000 souls recently applied to be his social media intern. So there’s an audience to be had, pun intended. In fact, for $750, fans can upgrade to the Meet & Greet package, guaranteeing a face-to-face encounter with the star. Plus, a dollar from that ticket will go towards the Red Cross relief efforts in Japan.
