Charlie Sheen Tour: $7 Million Boost for Troubled Actor

Mar 18, 2011, 09:27

Charlie Sheen may stand to net more than $7 million from his live tour plans after venues began selling out within minutes of the tickets having gone on sale. Estimates suggest that Sheen, recently fired from his high paying sitcom gig at CBS, could profit more than $7 million from his tour plans.

The April 2 debut of Sheen's "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option" tour at Detroit's Fox Theatre sold out in about 18 minutes last Saturday morning, the Detroit Free Press reported.

The April 3 Chicago Theatre date also sold out Saturday in just minutes, the newspaper said.

More dates featuring the recently fired "Two and a Half Men" star are expected to be added across the country.

Few details of the content of the shows -- including any opening acts or circus-type sideshows still being developed -- were available, but the event listing refers to the tour in its "Comedy" category.

Since being fired by CBS and Warner Bros., Sheen has filed a $100 million lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre, co-creator of "Two and a Half Men," The Detroit News reported.
