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?

Can you say Gary Busey. It may be funny now but Gary Busey thought he was "bi-winning" also

a 21 date road tour, with after parties he's required to show up at to make money, being the very thing a drug addict and alcoholic needs to stay clean. vaya con dios, charles.

The unenlightened among you just don't get it. $7.5 million in one month is WINNING™. Single-handedly increasing Twitter's market value by AT LEAST $1.5 BILLION (per the NY Times) is WINNING™. Getting paid $50k PER Tweet (again per the NY Times) is WINNING™. Telling all the Hollywood d-o-u-c-h-e bags to s-u-c-k his left n-u-t is WINNING™.

Charlie Sheen™ is an great actor; his current shtick is merely ACTING on a whole new stage. He's charting his own course with a new art form I call "Social Theatre™" or maybe better named "Social Media Theatre™" -- experimenting in unbound ways with his societal interactions to observe what the results will be. Mr. Sheen is right now creating, from nothing, a NEW form of theatre and entertainment based on the new world canvas.

He's thrown out the existing rulebook of life in general, and entertainment in particular; he's sharp and creative enough to understand the current rules don't often apply anymore in our new world -- he's a pioneer testing HIS ideas to create a brand new model as to how things really word. I applaud him for doing so.

Ignoring his publicist's advice then letting him run for the hills (Beverly Hills that is) was seminal event for Charlie -- by disintermediating traditional Hollywood, unbound Charlie was now totally and completely calling his OWN shots. He became a media Supernova -- bigger overnight, it seems than god herself. Any sane publicist would NEVER have allowed Charlie to experiment like he did but it turns out Charlie was right and they were all wrong.

I suspect he'll succeed much more often than he fails if he stays away from drugs and booze. No doubt, Charlie has had a few missteps along the way -- but the bottom line is this: For as long as he lives, he will have a HUGE audience now for whatever he does . . .

He is our perfect modern-day mix of Buddha, Vincent Van Gogh, Nostradamus, Galileo, Moses, George Washington, Jesus, Shakespeare, Martin Luther, Marting Luther King, Gandhi, The Dali Lama, Lenny Bruce, Mother Teresa, Sigmund Freud, General MacArthur, Socrates, Alexander the Great, Picasso, and of course, Scott T. Kay™ . . .

Instead of joining the show I'll wait for the internet rip. That's more than enough to see Charlie making a fool of himself.

I agree with this notion of 'new theatre". I also believe that it is a very wise choice for farther develeping 'V-effect" of which Sheen is obviously very aware of. Using publicity, twitter, e-marketing and show-business (as a business), with developed acting career he had, he may very well come up with something quite innovative.

And then,...perhaps he'll write a book, or, better yet, a playwrite of his own!

Charlie prophesied 'WINNING', and he is!
Sure, he may be drugged out but he’s keeping it real!!
People like when others keep it ‘real’!
Sort of like Billy Ray, keeping it real!!!
Gone are the days of keeping it ‘FAKE’!
Right on, Charlie, keep on ‘winning’!!!
