Charlie Sheen

Bombed in Detroit

4/3/2011 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen got heavily booed and people walked out of his show in Detroit tonight.

According to multiple people inside the Fox Theatre ... the majority of the audience heckled not only Charlie, but his buddy Simon Rex, who came out and started rapping.

We're told Charlie started the show with a Q&A session -- answering audience questions about everything from fave porn stars to crack cocaine (see the crack joke here). Then Charlie played clips from a network interview he did and ripped it apart.

At one point, Sheen tried to deflect the angry crowd by pointing out that he had his own app ... and they didn't (see video above).

That went on for about 30 minutes ... and the crowd was initially cheering for Charlie. He even sent out a twitpic of the enthusiastic audience.

But then the crowd got ugly.

We're told Charlie called on Simon Rex for backup ... sending him on stage to rap -- and when that backfired they played the new track, "Winning" ... which Snoop Dogg recorded for Charlie. 

We're told that got the crowd fired up ... but when neither Snoop nor Charlie came out on stage they started booing again.

At that point most of the crowd started walking out -- and the house lights were turned on.

We're told Charlie did come back on stage briefly and invited the people who stayed to move up closer to the stage ... but then he started complaining about his audio and walked off the stage.

Uncle Fred here.

The show was completely sold out. Not one seat available.

The goddesses looked a little confused but they did look good.

The opening act was horrid - and a very sober Charlie walked out and actually rescued the guy.

But the bottom line???

IT
WAS
THE
MOST
HORRIBLE
SHOW
I
HAVE
EVER
SEEN.

Before it got ugly - I asked my date if she was ready to leave.

Nope. She wanted to stick it out.

15 minutes later, I was alarmed enough at the crowd's behavior to grab her and run for the exit.

That is all.

Don't ever call Uncle Fred a fake again.

I was there - and my buddy Charlie let us down. :-(

I think Charlie over estimated his popularity and under estimated the moral character of his audience and everyone else who has been paying attention to him. A lot of these people went out of curiosity and to grab a little bit of pop culture. But that doesn't mean they really like Sheen or his lifestyle. A lot of them probably went there to boo him and voice their disapproval of him, even if they didn't consciously realize that was their reason for going.

The audience just didn't know #WINNING when they saw it!

THey should have been licking Charlie's feet just to be exposed to his radiance!

Where will Charlie go from here? Maybe He will realize, like the rest of us humans, that all we really have is family and a few friends, if were lucky!

What Charlie needs to do at the next show, is firstly walk out on stage dressed like the Pope, and burn a Quran! THAT should get the attention of the audience...no booing here!
