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.

No surprise here, but some people need a ton of bricks to fall on their head before they realize THIS IS NOT WINNING! Oh well, on to the next robbery, er, I mean show. Right Chuckles?

Obviously people went to this show to see this train wreck called Charlie Sheen. Did anyone expect anything beyond ignorant ramblings from a " Major League' ignorant psycho? They paid money to voice their opinion of his insanity!

I laughed so hard reading this. People expected it to be something awesome, but when it comes to Sheen, he's not as cool as he thinks he is.

PRO US    

9:43 — Sheen tells the audience, “You paid your hard-earned money without knowing what this show was about.”

10:12 p.m.: And perhaps the last word of the night goes to the Warlock:

“Sorry dude, already got your money,” Sheen told a booing fan.

Member when all his "people"(even some TMZ)said these shows would be awesome when the rest of us posted that they would be train wrecks? Wonder what they'll say now. Come out, come out wherever you are. Under the "cracks," are you? Maybe Lenny Dykstra can take over the tour and take it to the top!!!

You can read a series of Twitters from people at the show on The Detoit News website (detnews.com). "Awful" doesn't even begin to describe this Epic Bomb put on by Sheen. "Losing"!
