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.

Every equally mentally ill person in Detroit bought tickets. Seriously disturbing and sad. Some get Charlie Sheen some psychiatric help already.

He preyed on the curiosity of people who have never seen a "star" in person. However many people who fit in that theater, took the bait. Note: he is not doing his show in LA. Unfortunately, for the people in tomorrow's town. the tickets state no refunds.

He's had some weeks to prepare but absolutely no surprise that it didn't occur to this addict in denial that in the middle of LA he might want to take some time to find some writers, some talent and some PLANNING-in short, all the things the producers of 2.5 men did to prop him up with and stick him on stage in front of TV cameras while creating the impression he's cogent LOL

Well, that's it. The "Charlie Sheen Crazy Train" has come to a full stop. There is nothing left for him to do but maybe have a breakdown and end up in the hospital.

If he doesn't realize he f-cked up tonight then he really is in a state of full denial and won't know when to stop this madness.
