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.

what do you all expect?

unlike chicago... detroit is one of the biggest s.h.i.t holes of america... even the canadians living across the river can't stand it.

if it's not eminem, or some other 8-mile type artist, the people of trailer-park detroit couldn't give a rats ass!

i really do love all the band-wagon jumpers...

all these people who should consider themselves absolute SAINTS because they never done a single thing wrong in their lives and have never made any mistakes... you know the "perfect people"

it's all those people who are on tmz's threads spewing hate about every effed up celebrity because they've done something wrong, not because of a pre-disposition of disslike towards someone. They all watched his show and liked it, but then when he paid for sex and got caught doing drugs and acted like a total d-bag, ALL OF A SUDDEN, they now hate him.

well *I* for one, do not care what charlie, tiger, gibson, or any other public figure does in their PRIVATE life (aside from COURT PROVEN rape or murder). it doesn't change how i feel about their acting, sporting talent, etc...

if you never liked him fine... but if you hate him because of his spare time, get over yourselves

In Sheen's defense,

I think the people at the show were overreacting.I watched more of the show on another website. It featured jokes about the 20/20 interview etc. Of course Tmz cut that out. I don't see how anything was offensive or more offensive than what was expected. These people are stupid in my opinion. You purchased tickets to a show and as soon as Sheen was being himself, the guy you paid to see, you walked out? Actually, from what I saw in the other video, he was pretty funny. He was downplaying his own interview to lighten up the situation. So people lighten up!! I don't have any problems with people disliking him for whatever reasons. There's a lot he's done that could have crossed a lot of peoples comfort zones but if you purchased tickets to that show and walked out because of what I just saw in the videos, you're an idiot. "ooo look at me. I'm going to stand up and walk out to make a statement." I'm sure you'd watch a porno and turn it off in 5 minutes because there's too much nudity!

LOL!!! Great post!
People bought the tickets to see Charlie talking exactly the same way he has been talking for WEEKS. Anyone who expected something else is an idiot, because Charlie was not going to suddenly transform into a singer or comedian.
He is just an intelligent, funny guy, who has been through major breakthrough in his life lately and wants to share it LIVE with his fans.
Those people who were walking out and booing made asses of themselves and Chicago show proved it.

BOYCOTTCHARLIESHEEN HE BETTER NOT GET BACK ON 2.5 MEN

I am a big fan of Charlie Sheen and all of his antics, shena****ns, free verse, tour dates, creativity, talent and Hollywood smarts. Let's face it: He's going to get his job back from Warner Television Studios and CBS, or else they are going to pay him $100 Million for doing nothing. The only people we need to sanction here, are those who chose to attempt to kill the proverbial goose that lays the golden eggs. Any and every roadshow tour goes through a shakedown, and anybody in theater will tell you, every night, and every crowd, is different. Charlie could hire local bands to play sets in-between his onstage LIVE RIFFS on tour for LIVE NATION. It's a Winner. Tomorrow night, Charlie will be telling jokes about tonight in Detroit. As for TMZ, well, TMZ equals PEREZ HILTON. TMZ Producer puts out those horrible daytime fake-oh, ersatz Court Shows for YEARS. The Guy surrounds himself with know-nothing sycophantic papparazzi adult juveniles on his cable television show. He lives like a leech off of real Hollywood Careers. He is not significant enough, to comment on Charlie Sheen, or tie his shoes before he goes on stage.

BOYCOTTCHARLIESHEEN HE BETTER NOT GET BACK ON 2.5 MEN    

He is so disgusting. He is not remotely goodlooking and never has been!! -which is why he spends millions on prostitutes, oh wait sorry that is crack whores. Two and a half men did not blow up because we love Charlie Sheen, it was inspite of him that we gave the insipid plot a chance. We thought he was reformed from his nasty ways when he married Denise Richards (unfortunately for her she got played); we forgave him when he ot married because we liked her. We love Jon Cryer, and "Jake", "Rose", "Berta", etc. If he had any sense in his teeny-tiny crack riddled pee brain he would start bowing down and apologizing to all his children and their mothers for the disgusting public displays and humiliation he is causing. If he is too stupid to see what life-long scars he is leaving for his children everyday (and obviously he is tooooo stuuuupid to see that) he deseerves to lose custody forever. His poor children don't know any better and how can anyone call him a good father contracting crack whores as nannies / sex slaves for $250,000 a pop. You can get a real nanny with excellent references for $500/week; but the only thing he cares about is crack & whores and a real nanny would report his sorry disgusting ass to Chilrens protective services seeing all those prostitues and crack whores floating around the children. Obviously Charlie is an insecure infantile creton if he can keep doing the same thing making the same mistakes over and over and then going going online, on stage, on tv or any platform public or private and continue to brag about it. The only reason everyone is following him is because we hate him now, waiting for him to crash and burn, and don't want to miss it when it happens. Like I said he should be kicking those disgusting crackhead b*tches to the curb, trying to get his sh** straight, and begging on his knees for everyone of his "friends", family, and EX-coworkers' forgiveness. The only problem with that plan is that the whole world already forgave him way too many times, after all that he has put his wives through -trying to please him and going along with all his bullsh** just so their kids could know their father giving him chances after chances... I WOULDN'T BELIEVE A THING OUT OF HIS MOUTH; SO I DON'T KNOW WHY THEY SHOULD. FOR REAL BOYCOTT CHARLIE SHEEN, IN EVERYWAY, I REFUSE TO WATCH 2.5 MEN IN ANY WAY EVEN IN SYNDICATION RERUNS NO CS MOVIES, NOTHING. I WISH NO ONE WOULD HAVE BOUGHT TIX TO THE SHOW. SO GROSS... HE IS SO OVER. I JUST FEEL SORRY FOR HIS KIDS, AND IT WOULDN'T SURPRISE ME IF HIS DAUGHTERS WERE IN DANGER OF BEING MOLESTED. THEY NEED TO KEEP ALL THOSE KIDS AWAY FROM HIM. IT IS TOO IMPORTANT. HE HAS A CULT LEADER MENTALITY AND YOU KNOW WHAT THEY DO TO LITTLE GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He is now officially hated more than Osama bin Laden and deservedly so, so we all forgive him already too many times. I just can't stand what he's doing to his kids and that he is moronic enough not to know any better. He is not a man he is a maggot

I can't believe that people actually paid money to watch Charlie Sheen pee and poop onstage.

Attended the show in Detroit. Huge fan of Charlie's. However, I think he owes us an apology. Hard times in Detroit and we paid for him to show us he could (or could not) throw a baseball across the stage. Could have stayed home and played this with my son or better yet spent my money on a Tigers game for a cheaper price. Nice that we got the "experience" show and not Chicago and the bad name that now comes from it. Just remember Detorit when you are a true performer, we are loved by all especially Eminem and Seger. We don't deserve to have a hate chant from Chicago. If you saw what all of us witnessed, you would have left too. Sorry Charlie I don't make millions but we deserve better and a man would refund the money to Detroit. Not all of booed, but you didn't have to say - hey, "I already got your money." Poor taste. This is coming from a mother of three whose husband lost his job a couple of years ago. Next time what little money we make will be spent on a real performer.
