Charlie Sheen: Five Figures to Party with the Warlock

4/3/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Seeing Charlie Sheen at his sold out concert in Chicago tonight will cost you a pretty penny -- but that's NOTHING compared to the moolah you have to fork over to get next to Charlie at the after party. 

0401_charlie_sheen_flyer

Charlie will be setting up shop at Enclave on Sunday night after his show at The Chicago Theatre. We're told the club has tons of VIPs flying in from across the country, just for the chance to party with the HWIC (Head Warlock in Charge).

According to our sources, reserving a table at the club will run you about $10,000 -- but it's $20,000 if you want a table near Charlie. The big ticket menu item of the night -- a $25,000 bottle of Dom Pérignon 1995 Vintage White Gold Jeroboam ... and there are only 100 made in the world.

Considering how opening night went in Detroit, we don't expect a huge demand.

There's a certain trainwreck fascination in watching a meltdown in progress, but this anthropological study of the homo loco species wore very thin very fast. And Sheen appears to have known it. As the booing, and the shouts of "Loser" and "You suck" grew more insistent, and the walkouts increased, he said he would take a music break and return when the crowd woke up. Rather than the rumored guest appearance of Snoop Dogg, rapper Simon Rex appeared and barked a little, followed by Snoop performing on video. The possibility of Snoop appearing in person was nil, as he was performing with kids TV band Big Time Rush at Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Awards in Los Angeles at the time.

Half the audience sat there looking stunned for a time, watching the road crew clear the stage. On the way out, I overheard someone say, "Dude, that was seriously the worst thing I've ever witnessed."

Troubled U.S. actor Charlie Sheen was booed off stage Saturday in a chaotic start to a live show mini-tour, a month after being sacked from his megahit TV show.

Fans started walking out within 20 minutes of the start of the "Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is not an Option" debut show in Detroit, which ended after barely an hour when Sheen failed to return following a musical break.

"It was the worst thing I've ever seen in my entire life," said Jennifer Pyryt, 26, as as fans streamed out of the Fox theater, many of them booing and doing thumbs-down signs. "The show was horrible."

"I don't think it was put together very well," added Mary, 41, saying things started going wrong when the unpredictable Sheen tried to make a joke about Detroit's reputation.

"If he had not mentioned Detroit as a crack town, or the stealing of cars .. he turned a lot of people off," she said.

Sheen was sacked last month from the hit TV series "Two and a Half Men" after criticizing its producers in a series of rambling media outbursts which Warner Brothers called the actor "dangerously self-destructive conduct."

The 45-year-old, son of actor Martin Sheen, then became an Internet sensation after launching a Twitter feed which now has 3.4 million followers, and an online webstreamed show, "Sheen's Korner."

At the same time he announced his plans for the live tour, which now has more than 20 scheduled dates over the next month, after tickets for the first gigs sold out within 18 minutes.

Before Saturday's Detroit show fans had sung Sheen's praises, wearing "Warlock" T shirts and shouting his "Winning" mantra for television cameras gathered outside the theater.

But the mood afterwards was a mixture of disappointment and anger, with some fans talking about asking for their money back.

"Charlie's a big fraud. It was unbelievable, it was the worst show I've seen in my life," said another man, declining to give his name, as he and other headed off into the night.

DETROIT (Hollywood Reporter) - Call it tiger blood or Adonis DNA if you will. Just don't call it entertainment.

Kicking off his 20-city tour April 2 in Detroit, Charlie Sheen pulled a stunt that even by his standards was a little extreme. He alternately pandered to and antagonized an estimated audience of 5,000 people at the Fox Theater in a blatantly cynical attempt to cash in on his craziness. Roughly paraphrased, his excuse for having barely worked out the blueprint for an act was, "Hey, you guys paid for a show when you didn't know what you were getting!"

What the audience got was egomania gone wild. Grandiosely titled "My Violent Torpedo of Truth: Defeat is Not an Option," Sheen's haphazard act was neither standup nor confessional memoir, despite repeated promises that he was going to dig deep and dish secrets. It was closer to a motivational seminar, but one in which the speaker was also the key beneficiary. Early in the evening, before the crowd turned sour, there was a creepy atmosphere that suggested group indoctrination into a cult.

The audience was packed with beer-guzzling fans who cheered Sheen on at first as he benignly nodded approval of the girl-on-girl lip-lock from his "goddesses," two Christina Aguilera clones who promptly disappeared.

The crowd remained somewhat supportive as Sheen launched into a rant that began with, "They took my awesome children. They took my sometimes groovy job. They tried to take my brain and my heart and my titanium spine." There were promises of "A night of pure magic, a night of winning." But despite Sheen's assurance several times, that things were about to get radical, they just got boring. When you pledge to unlock the Vatican assassin inside each and every audience member, you better deliver something.

What Sheen delivered was the overwritten, faux-Biblical preaching of a self-anointed Messiah, who views himself as the most truthful person in the universe. Maybe, but not this universe. He opened up to audience questions and then deflected most of them as too lame to merit his attention, the chief exception being from a young woman who requested to come up onstage for a hug.

Whether Sheen was thrown off by the steadily increasing hostility in the audience is unclear. But the impression is that beyond the video content that made up more than 50% of his 70 minutes of stage time, there didn't appear to be much of a plan. The Two and a Half Men debacle was referenced only in one or two indirect swipes.

Sure, some of the video mashups and rap tributes were funny, but there was little that can't be enjoyed while surfing Youtube. And the scratch remix with comic inserts of Sheen's GMA interview with Andrea Canning was a succession of self-serving cheap shots. Irrespective of the vague information supplied about the show in advance, it seems dishonest to promise a night of soul-baring and deliver a lot of rehashed Web fodder.

There's a certain trainwreck fascination in watching a meltdown in progress, but this anthropological study of the homo loco species wore very thin very fast. And Sheen appears to have known it. As the booing, and the shouts of "Loser" and "You suck" grew more insistent, and the walkouts increased, he said he would take a music break and return when the crowd woke up. Rather than the rumored guest appearance of Snoop Dogg, rapper Simon Rex appeared and barked a little, followed by Snoop performing on video. The possibility of Snoop appearing in person was nil, as he was performing with kids TV band Big Time Rush at Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Awards in Los Angeles at the time.

Afterward, Sheen did not return (reports that he reappeared on stage after the end are false). House lights came up. No bow. Show's over. Half the audience sat there looking stunned for a time, watching the road crew clear the stage. On the way out, I overheard someone say, "Dude, that was seriously the worst thing I've ever witnessed."

The opening montage that introduced the star threaded together clips of his father Martin Sheen in Apocalypse Now with images from Jaws, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Dirty Harry, Die Hard, Carlito's Way, National Lampoon's Animal House and Fast Times at Ridgemont High, giving a pretty clear indication of how Charlie Sheen sees himself these days. That would be warrior, law enforcer, killer, psychopath and party animal. But this thrown-together, insanely self-indulgent showcase merely reveals someone far more sad and delusional.

Charlie Sheen first night tour disaster

Booed, heckled and having people walk out after 15 minutes...not the best way to start a sell out tour.

Oh, Charlie, Charlie, Charlie.

On the first night of his sell-out tour – let’s just pause a moment to think of all the people that means have bought tickets – Charlie Sheen did everything possible to create a live theatre experience that could be an even bigger disaster than the much talked about Spiderman musical.

The Warlock arrived on stage to rapturous applause from fans who snapped up the available tickets within minutes of them going on sale. All going well, then. But after 15 minutes it is believed that some people were already on their feet…to walk out.

Yes, as many predicted but very few would believe it seems that Sheen magic soon wore thin as his promise to tell the “real story” became just a series of nonsense rants. Did anyone really expect anything else? Honestly?

To make it worse the show ended after just an hour when Sheen went off stage for a musical break and did not return.

During his time on stage Sheen came out with such lines as “napalm dripping brain”, said he was a “giant leaky bag of mayhem”, and in his opening monologue he said that he was “finally here to identify and train the Vatican assassin locked inside everyone.”

As fans walked out chanting “refund”, the Hollywood Reporter was already compiling their article on the show which ended up saying, “Call it “tiger blood” or “Adonis DNA” but just don’t call it entertainment.”

So, doesn’t bode well for the rest of the tour, does it? Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who spent their hard earned cash on Sheen’s show. Perhaps you will look before you leap next time.

Sheen's 'Torpedo' tour bombs in Motor City

By TIM PERONE

NY Post

Sorry, Charlie, you're not winning anymore.

Wacky warlock Charlie Sheen's "Violent Torpedo of Truth" was more like a bomb -- with the maniacal Messiah of Malibu delivering a performance last night so disoriented and cringe-worthy that he was heckled off the Detroit stage.

Things got so dreadful that Sheen had to end the "performance" 20 minutes early as the crowd began streaming out, with many demanding their money back.

The show -- the first in a 20-city tour -- got off to a rocky start, with Sheen's opening act, an unknown stand-up comedian, getting booed off the stage.

But the former "Two and a Half Men" star rebounded with a pair of "Goddesses" singing the national anthem before they made out.

When Sheen strutted out, he ripped off his shirt and revealed a Detroit Tigers jersey and earned a standing ovation.

That would be the last of the cheers.

The "Wall Street" actor then underwent a major league meltdown, ranting about Thomas Jefferson and Sarah Palin and making bizarre promises to the crowd like "freedom from monkey eyed . . . sweat-eating whores."

"Is anybody else as confused by this s - - t as I am? " he asked them.

The Tinseltown train wreck said he'd "tell some stories about crack. I figured Detroit was a good place to tell some crack stories."

"I don't do crack anymore, but this is a good f- - - - -g night to do some crack," he said as the disappointed crowd of 5,000, which paid up to $80 to see the show, let loose a chorus of jeers.

"I've already got your money, dude," Sheen said.

After showing a series of bizarre video montages, and just 70 minutes into a promised hour and a half show, Sheen slinked off stage and the house lights came on.

One audience member, Chris Acchione, from Toronto, told Entertainment Weekly, that "[Sheen's] making a fool of himself. Is there a bigger loser in the world?

"He'll be [begging] Chuck Lorre ["Two and a Half Men" creator] for his job back by the end of the week," Acchione predicted.

There will always be some idiot who will spend that kind of money to hang out with Charlie "Crackhead" Sheen. Why? I could not tell you.

Charlie has conned people all over the United States into buying tickets for his asinine shows and is laughing all the way to the bank, because no one is getting a refund.

It's not about giving the people something for their money, it's about how much he can make off of his gullible followers who want to listen to him rant about warlocks, and spout phrases that makes no sense to anyone not even to him.

The same thing we saw for free on TV is what he's doing at these shows. I would not have attended his show if it was free.

Just like Charlie said, "it's not his fault if people want to spend money on a show they know nothing about". Reminds me of that old saying "it's one born every minute" and Charlie took full advantage of it.

I can't believe people actually are spending money to 'fly' anywhere to see this creep. Hope the Booing never ends. He deserves that much. Dog killer. Human abuser. Vile mouthed, ex-wife threatener. Fooey on him.

"a $25,000 bottle of Dom Pérignon 1995 Vintage White Gold Jeroboam ... and there are only 100 made in the world. "

Don't you mean "there were only 100 made"? The "in the world" bit is unnecessary. All champagnes are made in Champagne.

Oh, and spending 10000$ to be in the same room as Charlie Sheen? That's pathetic.

How much does it cost to watch the destruction of Charlie Sheen firsthand? You'll hafta bust thru the circle of parasites first, the ones who are contributing to his demise. The ones who won't even bother going to the funeral, the feeders and bloodsuckers, riding high on his claims of warlock blood.

When you surround yourself with losers Charlie, they drag you down, then they stomp the last little bit of humanity out of you. But hey. It's a party. Through the blur of alcohol and drugs you look almost alive.

This Torontonian isn't rooting for Charlie. I will however be laughing at the dumb Torontonian's who paid $300+ for tickets that are now going for under a $1 on Ebay. Haha!
I wouldn't even pay $1 for the tickets though it would be fun to go and jeer at him for 2 hours because there's a good chance he won't even show and my $1 would be wasted.
