Charlie Sheen Tour Sells Out


Apparently lots of you out there are winning. Well, Charlie Sheen is winning, you just want to watch. Taking after Coco, Charlie Sheen announced his mini-tour last week and then tickets went on sale. Approximately two minutes later his shows in Chicago and Detroit sold out. Yep, breathtakingly fast. Like fastest a show has sold out ever. So, Charlie is doing what any self respecting ticket selling person would do. Add more shows. Add them until you can't sell anymore. Sell enough and you end up with about one week's paycheck from the television show. I think Charlie is going to discover that it is hard to put on a show for a paying audience and that you work way harder for your money than when you are doing a television show.

Meanwhile, in family news Charlie's kids turned two and had a birthday party...without dad. Not winning.

Is the tour sponsored by Summer's Eve?

People are nuts.....

Ms Cool said...

Good one Veriance.

Miss X said...

I find this hard to believe.

I'm not shocked by this. He was already the highest-paid "actor" (for a role in which he basically played himself) on television before all this shit went down.

For whatever reason, dude DOES have a fanbase.

I'm so over this story. 1. It's creepy. 2. It's making me want to banish the following words from my vocabulary: "winning" and "goddess." 3. The whole thing is confirming to me that I am living in a world surrounded by idiots. The fact that this guy is even MORE popular now after all of his wife beating and shenanigans thoroughly pisses me off.

Since when does two dates constitute a "tour"?

I think it will get old pretty quick; after all, Conan is a comedian. What is Charlie going to do - keep whining about Chuck Lorre and/or CBS, his goddesses and how he cured himself?

I think once people get a glimpse of his ranting in person, it won't be long before they start moving on.

People go to watch the crazy. Wow. I personally wouldn't go even if they were giving away the tickets for free.

When are people going to figure out that going there to watch the trainwreck is the same as silently condoning the shit he does?

RocketQueen said...

Oh yeah. This is a good idea. You just know he's going to be doing drugs to keep up energy for so many shoes. This will end badly.

califblondy said...

It's one thing to watch this crap on TV or online, but to see it up close and personal? Oh hell ya, everybody wants a ticket to that freakshow. Ugh.

I think it's gonna backfire on him big time because people are going to want their money's worth and I can't see Charlie delivering the goods.

Mr Pink said...

RQ, nice Ed Sullivan reference.

nancer said...

we know this will be a self-indulgent diatribe and nothing more. it won't be enlightening or interesting. charlie has nothing to say really.

so i predict the reviews will be vicious, the crowds will dwindle and dates will be canceled.

chopchop said...

Mr. Pink made me laugh.

What is Carlos going to do for these shows? Rant? Chain smoke? Go 2 hours without blinking? I wanna know who is buying these tickets? Fans of 2.5 Men? Or people who are hoping to have a front-row seat to Charlie's suicide? Which is worse??

hunter said...

This is crazy and incredibly depressing. Meanwhile, do you know how hard it is to get people to get out of their houses to go see quality films or theater? But crazy "Winning" Charlie? Sold out.
Sigh.

valerie said...

His kids having a birthday party that Charlie Sheen didn't show up at? WINNING! This is one case where not having the dad around is a positive.

Jamie's Girl said...

What the hell is he going to do? He's not a comedien.

selenakyle said...

I think Lauryn Hill's touring reputation just got a WHOLE lot better-looking by comparison...

CarolMR said...

How interesting that Denise Richards is turning out to be the most sane out of Charlie and his girlfriends/wives.

sunnyside1213 said...

Maybe someone will write a comedy routine for him?

delilah said...

i hope that he stiffs them all and doesnt even show up for the events, or if he does, has a 15 min skit and bails.
NOW that would teach those idiot fan about "winning"

The Black Cat said...

Having an absent parent or having a parent named Charlie Sheen, um, all of those kids would be way better off without him in their lives.

Bangagong said...

He probably couldn't got to the party because of the restraining order. Which is a whole other issue, I suppose.

shakey said...

I think he should just channel this into another book of poetry. This will go over as well as Joaquin Phoenix's rap "career".

Still, I wonder if he'll do the Just for Laughs festival. Maybe he can host.

nunaurbiz said...

Am I the only one finding eerie parallels to Michael Jackson's life ... or the end of it?????

ardleigh said...

The shows should be sponsored by VIAGRA and VALTREX. The slogan could be:

They keep it up and we clear it up.


sponsors and friends of Charlie Sheen since 1998. He's given us so much, we felt it time to give back.

Fawn Neun said...

So, er, like, what is Charlie going to 'show'?

MCH said...

I'm so out of the loop on Sheen since I've been moving.

What idiots are paying to watch this guy talk?
