article imageCharlie Sheen angers fans at debut stand-up show

Detroit - Overwhelmingly negative responses are emerging from the first-ever live show from former Two and a Half Men star, Charlie Sheen, which happened on Saturday at Detroit's Fox Theater.
The twenty-date "Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour - with the sub-heading of "Defeat is Not An Option" - had sold out many of its dates well in advance, without any specific information of what the show would actually entail.
As it turned out, it was a pastiche of the kind of eccentric behaviour well-documented within the media this year, as well as a series of seemingly unrelated video clips - amongst them violent imagery from Apocalypse Now, Die Hard and Platoon, which Sheen himself starred in.
Sheen burned a shirt similar to the ones worn by his character in Two and a Half Men, stood on a podium with the words "Warlock States of Sheen" and mumbled his way through several rants in relation to his current situation.
It was around an hour into proceedings that mass walkouts ensued, with the crowd booing Sheen's disjointed and confusing show.
Sheen, 45, responded to the heckling and abuse with taunting such as "I've already got your money, dude!" and insulting the Detroit area.
It is unclear as to whether the remainder of the "Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour will go ahead.
