Charlie Sheen Rake$ It In On Tour

3/18/2011 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen will make $7 million dollars on his "Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour ... TMZ has learned.

0317_charlie_sheen_tour

Sources connected with the concert tour tell us ... the deal is for Charlie to perform on 21 dates. He'll get 85% of the profits, with Live Nation getting the remaining 15%.  Charlie's cut is projected to average between $250,000 - $275,000 for each show.

And there's more ... Charlie will get additional $$$ for after-parties and merchandising with 200,000 pieces of merchandise already shipped out for the show.

In all, we're told Charlie will pull in $7 million in a month.

The show will last 1 hour and 15 minutes.  It's essentially Charlie doing comedy in a chair, so the overhead is minimal.

And since the shows are selling out off of Charlie's Twitter, there are no advertising costs.

"Two and a Half" what?

I think people will ask for refunds. What fools would like to go see him? I think it will be a dud. He isn't a comedian and he can't rant for more than 10 minutes at a time. Like somebody said, he will do Q&A type thing and it could possibly work.

Well, if it's a numbers game, he's #Winning. 7mil in one month ain't to shabby! He is going to make sure that he earns more now, then he would have on 2 and half men. We all get gutted after losing a job, he bounced back very quickly... meanwhile i have to figure out what to sell, so i can make next months rent and pay the bills.
oh the justice of how our cards play out.

Charlie's drug induced buffoonery is new and amusing to lots of people. What they paid money to see is a once A-List actor act like the simpleton they saw on the first and second video...especially the second one.

Too get fired from a show where he was making $1.8 million PER EPISODE to this fiasco will always make him a loser in my book.

When the novelty of his childish and drug induced rants wear off which should be after a couple of shows he will be back to boozing and drugging big time.

I guess being crazy does pay off...People are amazed in this train wreck called Charlie Sheen.They wanna see or hear the crazy stuff he does and willing to pay for it.
Luckily this is the United States where stuff like this becomes popular(see jersey shore) for whatever reason.
But this is the United States and we get bored fast enjoy the money now in 4 months no one will care.

What would you do in Charlie's place? TV ? Movies? Or have total control? Be your own BOSS ? Trade-off ? Do you all GET IT that there is a balancing act between what you COULD do and WHAT fits? Do YOU wear a clown nose to work every day?
