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.

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?

Milk it Charlie. Soar high, burn bright, crash hard. Someone else will take care of your kids when your "middle aged crisis' has played itself out. Good Luck! Say Hi! to Jimmy, Janice, Jim, John (Belushi) John (Candy) etc. Have a great time! Make it quick! Burn baby burn!

Dear #9 Poster,

Sell Charlie Sheen t-shirts in the parking lot to pay your rent! duh.

Perhaps we're seeing WHY Sheen makes millions per month while millions of people struggle: Lack of fear.

He is suffering from a disease and I hope he accepts that before it's too late. At the same time, some of our character defects have a practical application in the business world.

I don't resent wealthy people simply for being wealthy. An attitude like that would only show fearfulness and inability to take responsibility for my own position in life. Kudos for making lemonade out of the lemons you cultivated, Charlie; but there is a better way to live, in case you're ever interested.

This man is sick! Instead of the media giving him ammunition to keep feeding into this sick frenzy, they should just ignore him and let him come to back down to Earth and get some help! Does no one have any compassion for him, his kids, his family? It's very obvious that drugs have done major damage to Charlie's mental health right now. He is ruining his life, people! I only hope he makes it long enough to get the help he desperately needs. Why do people build someone up and contribute and love when they fall? The media is the biggest culprit. People need to say a prayer for Charlie, because I'm afraid his time is running out. It's so sad.

Only in America can this happen. It's NOT funny, but we are watching a once great actor and commedian self-destruct in front of a lot of people. When will he come to his senses and realize what he is doing? It's still not too late for him to get off of drugs and alcohol, repent of his ways, and apologize to the American people and the world? He could become a great actor again.

Awesome, just enough for him to buy another weekend full of cocaine and hookers, just in case the goddesses decide to bail out on him after the $ run out. Duh, winning!

Of course he can make 7 mill. per show. The tickets aren't all one flat rate, they range wildly in price just like any other stadium event. He'll make out pretty good. Only one hour of 'work' per event whereas he could spend an entire day or more shooting and reshooting scenes for 2 1/2 men. Yeah, he made out OK from the money end of things. He'll have to travel but he'll be treated like a rock star.

Seriously, who are the stupid ones? Now as wild as I am, I would NEVER but a ticket to see a disgruntled actor rant and rave about his overbearing life. Who ever thinks that going to this "concert" or "comedy" event, is entertainment, has to have the most dull and boring life. Ticket holders, you are a sad bunch handing that idiot your money. Why don't you just put it in an envelope and send him the cash, you will at least save on gas money, and all that dough you will spend on dumb concessions.

Charlie-ville,what a wasteland. Let him have his little world all too himself and his two bimbos. You guys who are going are fools.
