Charlie Sheen's much-hyped, sold out "My Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour began with a bust at Detroit's Fox Theater on Saturday.
According to multiple reports, the 45-year-old star provoked boos, audience walk-outs and demands for refunds during his rambling stage show. (The spectacle featured an appearance by his live-in "goddesses," a Q&A session about Sheen's wild life, film clips featuring his dad Martin Sheen and Johnny Depp, and a live rap by Simon Rexx.)
One disappointed audience member bellowed, "You suck!"
Sheen's retort: "Already got your f***ing money, dude."
After less than an hour, Sheen cut the extravaganza short; he left the stage for good, and the house lights were turned on.
"I want my money back!" audience member Linda Fugate told the Associated Press after walking out of the show. Fugate paid $150 for a pair of tickets. "I was hoping for something," she said. "I didn't think it would be this bad."
Added fellow fan Rodney Gagnon: "I expected him to at least entertain a little bit. It was just a bunch of ranting."
Inspired by Sheen's ouster from Two and a Half Men following an epic battle with the show's creators and the studio, the 20-city tour is scheduled for the rest of April.
