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?

Well he hasn't had his first show yet. If it's a dud, are people going to be asking for their money back? Some people are suckers for a snake-oil salesman. You don't even know what Sheen is selling, but you're willing to sign up? No one wonder he (Sheen) is "winning". How foolish can you be and how far from the "A" list has Sheen fallen?

Sweetie - you've fried yourself on so much coke. If you don't get a grip, you're not going to get any time with your kids. I'm not judging, just stating the obvious. Find peace. Without peace, you're going to give up your children. Is that really what you want? Peace and positive energy be with you, Grandma G

Not so crazy, huh?

This man is brilliant. He could only pull this off if sober. It requires strategy and finesse and CS drips all of that.

I believe he's sober and that WB is crying in the corner wondering how they can off load Chuck Lorre to bring CS back.

They'd be crazy not to.

Problem is, he HASN'T pulled it off yet has he?? So far all he has done is taken alot of money from suckers, er, people, willing to watch this guy implode on stage.But in reality he hasn't done a single show yet. Ask anyone who has actually had to hold an audiences attention for an hour or more, a PAYING audience. I think people will come expecting alot and will receive little and will go away VERY unhappy. Critics will tear him up and ticket holders will start demanding their money back. People are fickle and clearly have a short attention span. I see nothing good coming from this....

I'm sorry but did I miss something, EXACTLY what is Charlie going to be doing on stage? He is not a stand up and he's only been captivating audiences because of his erratic behavior. Everything is probably going to be written for him....as usual!
He is a monkey! A trained monkey!

Charlie - anger is not your friend. The world you're seeing is colored with violence and hate. These things are not life-sustaining. Best to you, and please don't respond in all caps, it's very rude. Peace, GG

I thought he was going to donate $1 of every ticket sold to the Japanese Disaster Relief. How come you don't hear that anymore?

You know what would ROCK? If Chuck Lorre was the one who bought up all the tickets (he can afford it), then each of Charlies shows would be EMPTY except for Chuck sitting in the front row yelling "Come on douche... make me laugh!"

I would think his rants will be slanderous. The 7 million dollars he makes may not be enough to pay the lawsuits off.
