Charlie Sheen Reverses Detroit Fail With Chicago Revamp

Charlie Sheen went into his first “Violent Torpedo” show as a folk hero. He came out a goat. He was booed, heckled and ultimately dozens of people walked out.  But leave it to Charlie to right a sinking ship. He drew a standing ovation in Chicago.

Sheen, 45, kicked off a month-long, 20-city tour in Detroit, promising to give his fans the real story behind his crack up and ouster from the hit show “Two and a Half Men.”

His First “Violent Torpedo of Truth Defeat is Not an Option”  failed to deliver for his fans, But in Chicago, the show was completely revamped.

The crowd was also definitely in his corner. They chanted “Detroit Sucks” while waiting for Sheen to appear.

When he finally took the stage — 15 minutes late — he added a Q&A, cut down on the number of video clips and pulled a view wild man stunts, like ripping off his shirt.

He also made better use of his “goddesses,” parading them on stage and kissing them, according to various reports.

Girlfriend Natalie Kenly was at his side, but porn star Bree Olsen who was at the Detroit show, was absent.

This time, he talked more about his career and growing up a rich kid in Hollywood. He is the son of actor Martin Sheen.

He told how he he was supposed to be in “The Karate Kid,” but declined after advice from his father, and he recounted smoking marijuana with Chris Penn, according to gossip site TMZ.

Also  he said he would consider returning to “Two And A Half Men.”

It was a sharp contrast from his first “night of winning.”

Fans reportedly wanted to see Sheen rant and rant he did, but his screeds missed with the crowd.

“I expected him to at least entertain a little bit. It was just a bunch of ranting,” said Rodney Gagnon, 34, of Windsor, Ontario.

Clearly the crowd wanted to get to know the actor as well as see him in action. And on that point, Charlie won Chicago.
