Reports: Opening night of Charlie Sheen tour bombs

DetroitSheen

News reports indicate that the opening night of Charlie Sheen’s live tour tonight, on a scale of 1 to 10 men, wouldn’t even get 2 1/2.

“The 70-minute show hadn’t even ended when the first reviews were in,” wrote The Associated Press, “and they were brutal.”

EW.com’s James Hibberd live-blogged the event, chronciling how the heady anticipation (illustrated by the image above that Sheen tweeted) dissolved into a cascade of wide-eyed disappointment and boos.

“The show is now an unmitigated disaster,” Hibberd writes. “People are leaving early. Attendee Chris Acchione, who came all the way from Toronto for the show, says, ‘He’s making a fool of himself. Is there a bigger loser in the world? He’ll be [begging] Chuck Lorre for his job back by the end of the week.’ ”

That’s probably not the case, but it’s not looking too promising for Chicago, the next stop on the tour Sunday.
