Charlie Sheen misses his big comeback in the spotlight

Charlie Sheen was booed and heckled before his audience waked off at the premiere of his show Saturday night in Detroit.

The first show of this tour began to thunderous applause but ended 70 minutes later.

Things started well. Sheen arrived onstage to the cheers, just after the screening of a montage showing him in Wall Street and Platoon, on a guitar solo from his friend Rob Patterson. The audience was overwhelmed with excitement when Sheen was brought on stage by those he calls his “goddesses”, a former p#1n star and an actress.

“I don’t see a single empty seat,” he told the crowd. But it didn’t last that way.

The situation escalated after a member of the audience started booing. Sheen replied: “I’ve already got your money, dude.”

Others started whistling after the actor showed multiple video clips, including a short film called RPG that he produced and directed and which starred a young Johnny Depp.

At one point, Sheen tried to calm the crowd.

“Come on, guys. You paid to see me,” he said. “… You gave me your hard-earned money without knowing what this (expletive) show was about. I’m here now … and I’m willing to open up.”

Sheen tried to appease the expectations of some 5100 spectators by cursing, calling a rapper on stage or a Q&A session. In the end, the actor concluded that his first show, entitled My Violent Tornado of Truth / Defeat is Not an Option, had been “an experience”.

Disappointed spectators chanted for refund before heading to the exits and the show took an abrupt end.

It is difficult to establish when the public lost interest, but there were several embarrassing moments. Known for his life of partying and rampant use of drugs, Sheen said on stage that he thought Detroit was the perfect place to tell stories about crack. An affirmation which immediately drew boos from the public.

But the debacle of the first stage performance already raises the question of the future shows. Some fans seem to have lost interest, while Sheen is set to be back on stage this Sunday night in Chicago.

“He’s not suited for this,” said Orlowski, 46, a lawyer from Plymouth (Michigan) who watched with six clients from a VIP suite. “It wasn’t funny.”

“I was hoping for something. I didn’t think it would be this bad,” said Linda Fugate, a 47-year-old from Lincoln Park (Michigan).

Charlie Sheen’s agent, Larry Solters, declined to comment after the show. The actor reappeared on stage when the lights were turned back to thank the hundreds of spectators that remained in the room.
