Ticket sales slow for Charlie Sheen’s tour

Despite early reports that tickets for Charlie Sheen‘s upcoming “My Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour had sold out within hours, ticket sales are in fact slow. The initial reports were due to scalpers buying out the shows, hoping to make a profit. Unfortunately, they’re now finding it difficult to get rid of the tickets, even at face value. More than 2,800 tickets are still available for Sheen’s shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York City next month, and seats that originally sold for $126 are now being offered for $98. CNBC correspondent Jane Wells reported that good seats are still available for most of his shows, writing: “I went on Ticketmaster last night and found I could easily get tickets to opening night at the Fox Theater in Detroit. I found two side-by-side seats on the main floor. When I clicked on the special ‘Meet and Greet Package,’ four seats in the front row were available.” We verified her statement, noting that the seats she mentioned were still available, then searched and found numerous floor seats for both the Toronto and Vancouver shows, including two seats together in the first row for the Vancouver “Meet and Greet Package.” The Hollywood Reporter estimated Sheen could make US $300,000 per show. Unfortunately, since the shows haven’t actually sold out, he’ll likely make substantially less than estimated.

    Doesn’t sound like he’s “winning.” What’s his show supposed to be, anyway? He’s not a comedian. He’s not a musician. Did the few losers who bought tickets pay just to hear him tell them how great he is and how pathetic they are?

  2. Chris • March 31, 2011 @ 1:30 AM

    Who the hell would want to see his show?

  3. Charlene • March 31, 2011 @ 9:35 AM

    I’m so glad the SCALPERS are getting stuck with these tickets……

    I would love to go, just to call Charlie names like he is doing to his x-wife. Let’s give him a taste of his own medicine.

    Go back to work Charlie , you had a good thing going, I would guess the best thing you will ever have, Take some good advise for a change , eat some humble pie if you have to but go back to Two and a Half men , you were really good at that, nothing else will bring you that kind of respect , you can still “win”

  5. L1feless • March 31, 2011 @ 9:40 AM

    well put Bree. Admiting you were wrong is not losing. Especially if you end up back in a successful TV show making millions. At the end of the day I’d say apologizing is his direct path back to ‘Winning’.

  6. Age A • March 31, 2011 @ 9:42 AM

    I would rather watch paint dry than sheen…he is about as interesting as the color grey. If I had a choice between watching his show and having my teeth pulled I would buy pudding and straws…what a loser…but…only in america could a goof with children choose to lose it all and get payed for it!

  7. Charile Sheen • March 31, 2011 @ 9:51 AM

    I WIN!!

  8. Charile Sheen • March 31, 2011 @ 9:57 AM

    All you haters dont understand how this system works any fame is better than no fame at all everybody knows that. I obviously am a comedian which is why i am making a mockery of hollywood because that is what i do that is the kind of person i am. If you dont like me then dont comment on things about me. Even if my shows doesnt sell out. I will still make what you make in five years in one night. Sheen= WIn

  9. 3Xmen • March 31, 2011 @ 10:06 AM

    Can’t even spell your own name CHARILE! Think you are the Joke, not the Comedian!!!

  10. Age A • March 31, 2011 @ 10:12 AM

    If that was charlie sheen replying to comments made… then I am piloting the Titanic up the Nile with the cast from Goodtimes on Christmas day using popcorn as fuel…whoever it was needs spellcheck also.

    I for one think the show should be a riot. Going to the opening one in Detroit this Saturday. As far as I’m concerned it’s all a big gimmick and good for him. True enough, any publicity is always a good thing in Hollywood.

  16. Kags • March 31, 2011 @ 12:28 PM

    hahahahaha, just goes to show no one likes him anymore!!!!

  17. Kags • March 31, 2011 @ 12:32 PM

    I seriously doubt that is it actually Charlie Sheen commenting on this. It’s probably a die hard fan. Get a life!!!!

  18. chris • March 31, 2011 @ 12:42 PM

    Hey, Charile or Charlie. Whatever your name is. What’s the point of making all that money when you’re going to die very soon because you keep trying to act like the fictional character you USED to play on tv? Sheen is not a comedian. He’s the punchline. He may have a lot of money and live in a mansion but his children will grow up to hate him. No matter what he tries to fill his empty void with, he’ll always be alone. What makes it worse is his brain is too messed up from all the drugs and alcohol for him to realize any of this. Keep telling yourself that having all that money actually means anything.

  19. Lila • March 31, 2011 @ 12:49 PM

    I don’t think Sheen is writing these messages because he doesn’t need to be that allow. Come on people think about it, how would you like everything you do be scrutinized by microscope and dirty pen.

  20. Lila • March 31, 2011 @ 12:50 PM

    shallow – not allow

  21. Walt • March 31, 2011 @ 3:13 PM

    Mr. Sheen looks like he is physically ill besides having some personal issues. He may be winning when it comes to making money and fame. The Mr. Sheen I remember from years ago, family and the respect of his peers was the most important things to him. In these areas he appears to be losing.
    He is a human being and humans mess up, I know I have. Mr. Sheen is walking on the edge right now, I just hope he does not fall off and in the end something positive come out of this situation.

  22. Elayne B. • March 31, 2011 @ 3:39 PM

    This is the first comment I’ve ever done. I think that Charlie Sheen is a sad, shallow person. He is starting to believe his own press. Feel sorry for his father Martin and his family, etc. He doesn’t seem to be able to differentiate between playing a fictional character on TV and reality. YES, he is funny, but very talented writers are putting words in his mouth for the TV show.
    He has proven time and time again that he is an awful husband, ex-husband, father, ex-father, etc, etc.
    Any woman who is attracted to him, has rocks in her head. Seriously, even if he has to PAY for his women, it’s sad and pathetic. He is being rewarded for his unacceptable behavior. Charlie Sheen is so incredibly childish and immature, its pathetic. I hate to wish bad things for someone, but personally I was hoping that his “comedy tour” would NOT SELL plenty of tickets. The scary thing is that so many people seem to admire him still and we all have to admit that Charlie (not his fun TV character) is a sorry, messed up person. He should be able to afford some good advice. I’m sure his REAL friends have asked him to seek help and maybe even had an intervention for him. He is violent, unpredictable, and it must be very scary to be one of his ex’s.
    Just my 2 cents from Toronto…. Elayne B.

  23. Tayderhead • March 31, 2011 @ 3:48 PM

    I predict that Sheen will be dead within the next five years from liver disease.

  24. Wendy • March 31, 2011 @ 4:29 PM

    Get help Charlie….cry out to the Lord you once knew….HE didn’t leave you….you left him.

  25. Joey • March 31, 2011 @ 4:45 PM

    He did not really make sense when he was being interviewed on TV. His answers were not funny, thought-provoking or even compelling. It was blah. So, what is there to watch in his tour anyway that people will actually buy?

  26. The diabolical Dr.K • March 31, 2011 @ 5:51 PM

    If I wanted to watch a junkie spout drivel I`d go down to main and hastings for free.

  27. Duncan • March 31, 2011 @ 6:19 PM

    Wow, if that really is Charlie Sheen commenting he needs get more of a life. Or maybe 2 and 1/2 lives seeing as he is so special! Let’s face facts, as one commentator put it, without a script, he’s not much of an act. BTW Charlie, you need professional psychiatric help – a normal brain can easily process the fact you’re having manic delusions. They’ve come a long way in treating bi-polar disorder.

  28. LynneK • March 31, 2011 @ 6:58 PM

    If Charlie Sheen really wants to be a “winner”, he needs to dump the bimbos, booze,& the brain killers.
    It would also help to stop beating up and threatening women, act like a decent human being, take care of his family and grow the F up!

  29. Chuckie • March 31, 2011 @ 9:16 PM

    He’ll probably turn up late and just stand there insulting the audience when he finally decides to show up. He should watch it, he could get sued for slander if he keeps shooting his mouth off about studio execs. I don’t think he’ll ever work in showbusiness again, he’s made too many enemies.

  30. Kathleen • March 31, 2011 @ 11:31 PM

    This is for Charlie Sheen if you are following this.How did you feel when your Dad was drinking and behaving badly and ruining your family? You keep insisting that your love your kids and are a responsible father. Are you really being a good father by setting this kind of example for your kids. Whether their mother’s tell them now or not sooner or later they will know the way you are acting and the irresponsible and dangerous things you are doing to yourself. This is bound to hurt them because you do not appreciate your life and your being their father enough to live it so you can really be there for them the way they need you to be. If you live so long as to see them grow up how will you feel when they follow in your Dad’s and your footsteps and start drinking and taking drugs and sounding like they have lost their mind and looking like they are in stage four cancer and about to die at any moment? Charlie you have proved that you have talent, use it well so your children can be proud to have you for their Dad.

  31. gbh999 • April 1, 2011 @ 11:58 AM

    This fool is on tilt. Why would anyone pay to see more of this clown? The entertainment media, seems to have a shot of him doing, or saying something foolish everyday. He reminds me of the monkey, with the organ grinder. Winning… yeah sure. Just a little delusional, that’s all.

  32. Stephiebear • April 1, 2011 @ 12:00 PM

    hahaha, Charlie Sheen is awesome. And I say that with tongue in cheek, because we can’t stop watching or talking about him. It’s like watching a train wreck in action. He’s one of those people that I can look at and appreciate how incredibly normal I am. My husband loves it too. He says that Sheen is living every man’s dream life. Money, a couple of women at the same time, booze, say what you want when you want. A bachelor’s utopia. Seriously, take it for what it is and enjoy the hilarity. He’s the one going down, and we don’t have to feel bad because it’s totally his choice. We just get to sit back and enjoy the fireworks and be morbidly enthralled.

  33. Diane Moore • April 1, 2011 @ 12:22 PM

    Andy Kaufman made a profit while he was dying of cancer. He charged people $1.00 to touch the cancerous tumour on the back of his neck. Charlie: learn from this: you’ll be dead for a long time.

  34. Liz • April 3, 2011 @ 4:16 PM

    I think poor Charlie is having midlife crisis. Can someine tell him about that plz.,

  35. Thibz • April 4, 2011 @ 6:25 AM

    Please for anyone who actually believed that commenter was Charlie its not. Its rediculous to think he would even waste his time on these forums. And he spelt his name wrong twice lol and its not even accurate to how he pulls off his rediculous one liners.
    He should just give up and get back to his tv show, before he loses from people boredom of him.

    The return of the Lotus brand after 16 years, backed by the Malaysian government and businessmen, adds to the excitement of the new season, Mokhzani said. In addition, national oil company Petronas has also become the title sponsor of Schumacher’s Mercedes GP team.
