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?

Those who bought the initial sales of tickets are just curious, they just want to have a piece of this rottenly spoiled Hollywood addict for conversations with their families and friends for just a few bucks. And for sure just after sitting for a boring 5 minutes listening to endless looney rants of this rottenly spoiled Hollywood addict those people will realize how stooopidly moronic they've been had. I don't believe this rotten Hollywood addict will sustain those 21 playdates not because it would be physically draining because he's a functional addict so he could really do this crazy act but because ticket sales will go down the drain after its initial concert, show whatever you want to call it.

Charlie has really went from way up there to waaay down there for doing this cheap stunt. He's really now a certified hasbeen. Well, at least he now found a platform to deliver all his looney, illogical, nonsensical, moronic rants and get a percentage for it. I'm really curiously waiting for TMZ news in a few months about this rottenly spoiled Hollywood addict.

When was the last time you saw your children, Charlie? When will you see them again? Coke will only give you so much satisfaction. Your boys and girls must miss you. Do you want them to grow up without their father? If you keep this up, the next time they see you will be in a hospital bed or a casket. Picture that in the eyes of a child. Courts are not lenient with the public behaviors you're showing. I'm not attempting to micro-manage you, but I think a mirror is in order and the people around you don't have the balls to be honest. Peace, GG

Over on Radar there's a couple posters saying that there's a ton of those tickets available for sale on ebay. Would it shock anyone to find that a bunch of brokers bought them thinking it was going to be HUGE? And being that there's so many STILL AVAILABLE and NOT SOLD OUT maybe there will be very few people in the audience??

It wouldn't shock me to find out that CS himself bought them out, to get people interested (cuz he believes he is the smartest man in the world) and start a frenzy. Not to mention, if he is able to sell the second hand tickets at a higher price = mo money. You know, he's just delusional and egotistical enough to believe he could pull it off.

But, personally, I don't know a single soul that has any desire to watch him rant in a chair on a stage. Not ONE. And when we have already witnessed the sickness for free, what's the point anyway? Charlie, man, you screwed the pooch.

The show "sold out" to brokers. There is no real "demand" for Sheen tickets. It doesn't really count.

I have been saying people that Charlie is NOT CRAZY! If you look up Charlie on Youtube, you find a vid from like the 80s, being manic and super poetically eloquent with dark poetry. He may have a problem with drugs, but he is one brilliant guy. What I love about this current campaign(and it is a campaign) is that he knows from the inside how his industry operates and how the public is gullible. They media build you into a hero (even if you are facing felony charges and being found drugged up in hotels) and the public adores you. Then, you upset Chuck Lorre types and they turn on you and suddenly they don't just pull the rug from underneath your feet, but they make sure every report has the word, "crazy, bizarre, unstable, violent," and try to make the public hate you just as quick and as hard as they loved you. Because the public is used to seeing Charlie as the lovable, harmless, drunk millionaire uncle, they get freaked out when the flawed, artistic, vulnerable and poetic artist shows up with a new character. Charlie figured out that in order to keep his standing in the public's eye and have the attention of the public to take on his "enemies" he had to do something seemingly "crazy". Everyone fell for it. I like the present Sheen and if he is as strong as he appears to be, will wise, he will win out. He won't be a Michael Jackson at all. MJ couldn't cope, he had handlers do everything for him. Charlie is there talking himself to the public and in control of his money, decisions and if he dies, he will do so fighting. God bless him and help him. I for one, find that Lorre and his CBS partners, ghoulish and disgusting. I mean, they take exploit a drug addict for as long as they can, the minute their valuable hardworking comedic mule wakes up and protests, they want him destroyed. Now, that is just terrible. The reason it is just cruel is that assuming Lorre and CBS company are correct and that Charlie is an addict who deserves firing, that is no reason to destroy him publicly. In my mind, besides a contract dispute, Charlie has a tort claim against those people. I think that an employer who knows or has reason to know their employee is disabled (and they claim he is disabled due to his addictions or due to mental disease), they are required to provide accommodations. At no time an employer should be allowed to (1) fire the person and (2) trash him/her in public to destroy that person's ability to get employment elsewhere. If they wanted to let him go because he had become too much trouble, why didn't they let him keep his dignity and done in an peaceful way? They certainly saw to it that Charlie's image was protected and given a sheen of goodness many other times he was in trouble before a judge for domestic violence or drugs. Go Charlie and keep strong! I hope you win your case against Lorre and the networks. I am sure many actors will be grateful to you if you win.

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!"

Get real Charlie. Is Cassandra talking to you? Bob and Max only know the void and can't understand, yet. But Sam and Lola, they're hurting. Get off the coke and get back to cannabis. How are you "winning" when you can't even see your kids? Kids don't care about $$, they want time. Are you "winning" now? Peace, GG

they coined the term odyssey when they were in awe at what they could not understand. a grand and eternal epic struggle that would make ordinary men perish. charlie sheen is who they were talking about wearing togas and eating olives and what are they wearing now. a bible. bible grippers. preaching the weak and timid that their sacrifices are not in vain.

Ur not charlie sheen and you never will be if ur LUCKY enough to have privilage of witnessing a god then ur ready to pass on this plain of existence. ull never understand it so stop trying. theres no way ud understand whats beyond you.
