Charlie Sheen and his upcoming show “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option” will be coming to both Toronto and Vancouver stages.
His tour will also see stops in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Boston, Atlantic City, Washington D.C., Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, Denver, and San Francisco, with 21 dates set in all. In New York City, Sheen’s one-man show sold out not once but twice at Radio City Music Hall, and it will be the largest venue on his tour.
The New York Daily News has said that the "Two and Half Men" actor will rake in a whooping $7 million for his tour.
Charlie Sheen first hit Hollywood radars when he appeared in the big-screen war drama "Platoon" in 1986, followed by "Wall Street" and roles in slapstick comedies like the two parts of "Hot Shots!" as well as two "Scary Movie" flicks. His latest gig was starring as Charlie Harper on the popular TV sitcom "Two and a Half Men," which he was fired from on March 7th for alleged drug and alcohol abuse (and excessive partying, and other strange and random acts). He also comes from celeb blood – his father is acclaimed actor Martin Sheen and his brother is Emilio Estevez.
Charlie Sheen’s “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option” tour kicks off in Detroit on April 2nd and, according to TMZ, sold out in 18 minutes, a record for Ticketmaster. He will be performing north of the border at Massey Hall in Toronto and Rogers Arena in Vancouver. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.
