Charlie Sheen sets live dates in Detroit and Chi

No kidding, Charlie Sheen really is taking a page from Conan O’Brien’s playbook.

Fastball The embattled actor has set live dates (no, not court dates) in Detroit and Chicago next month for shows billed as “Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth.” April 2 at Detroit’s Fox Theater and April 3 at the Chicago Theater.

This explains his visit to the Live Nation offices earlier this week. I suppose with all of those billable legal hours ahead and no weekly salary coming in, Charlie probably needs the  $$$. But will people really pay $$$ to see his brand of crazy on stage after getting an overdose on TV and the web for the past two weeks?

Here’s how “Torpedo of Truth” is being pitched on Ticketmaster.com:

My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option Show is coming for you.

I’m going on the road. LIVE.

Will there be surprises? Will there be guests? Will there be mayhem? Will you ask questions? Will you laugh? Will you scream? Will you know the truth?  

This IS where you will hear the REAL story from the Warlock.  

Bring it. I dare you to keep up with me.
