No April Fool’s Day joke here: Hide the goddesses, Detroit. Charlie Sheen’s bringing his winning ways to the Fox Theatre on April 2
No April Fool’s Day joke here: Hide the goddesses, Detroit. Charlie Sheen’s bringing his winning ways to the Fox Theatre on April 2.
In an event listing posted to Ticketmaster.com tonight, the controversial star’s "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option Show" is scheduled to hit the Motor City on April 2. Tickets, according to the event posting, start at $35 and are scheduled to go on sale 10 a.m. Saturday.
In the event listing, Sheen briefs his fans with a short note:
“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? WILL THERE BE MORE?!?! This IS where you will hear the REAL story from the Warlock. Bring it. I dare you to keep up with me.”
While no official announcement from promoters was made Thursday night, Olympia Entertainment’s Twitter feed confirmed the Sheen machine is headed to the D.
There’s also a Sheen show planned for Chicago on April 3.
Just as quickly as Sheen’s Detroit date was announced, getting the star to the D could be tricky as TMZ.com reported late Thursday night that the Los Angeles Police Department and other law enforcement agencies were converging on his house in a pre-planned raid.
Sources told TMZ that the LAPD had been conducting an investigation into alleged criminal activity.
TMZ reports the enforcement officials hit Sheen's home because of a possible violation of the temporary restraining order obtained by his soon-to-be ex-wife Brooke Mueller, and the allegations include weapons.
WKQI-FM's (95.5) “Mojo in the Morning” cohost Spike said the ever-evolving Charlie Sheen story is an unprecedented pop culture story. Spike added that deep down, however, Sheen is just a guy going through some problems.
“We’re constantly trying to gauge our morning show audience and if, perhaps, they’re a little Sheen-ed out. But every time we do talk about him people’s curiosity is piqued. And he’s pretty fascinating to listen to.”
Spike added that his show’s producers have been in talks with Sheen’s camp about the troubled star coming to Detroit and sitting in one morning. While nothing has been finalized, Spike said they were looking at dates around the just announced April 2 Fox Theatre show. But, Spike added, a sticking point is money. He said that Mojo and co. want the money they would pay him for his visit to go to one of the “Mojo in the Morning” show’s official Detroit charities, in Sheen’s name of course. According to Spike, Sheen’s camp said they were hopeful a deal could be worked out, but that Sheen might want the payment himself.
Stay tuned tiger blood lovers.
