It’s two out of three for Charlie Sheen on his “Violent Torpedo of Truth–Defeat Is Not an Option” tour, according to TMZ.com. Tuesday night’s show got an enthusiastic response from the Cleveland audience, culminating in a standing ovation.
Sheen also got raves for his second show, in Chicago, after bombing on opening night in Detroit.
The actor made the most of his Cleveland connections during Tuesday’s show, wearing a Cleveland Indians jersey in a tribute to his role in “Major League.” The crowd showed its support for Sheen by chanting “F–k Detroit,” among other things.
Fans generally had positive things to say after the show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Said one fan, Ben Heckerman: “He surpassed my expectations. He seemed more down-to-earth and cool. He was funny and witty and engaged the crowd.”
Added another audience member, Julia Love, quoted in the THR story: "I loved Charlie Sheen in ‘Two and a Half Men,’ but to be honest, lately since he’s left the show he’s become even more entertaining, and I love that he’s refusing to stop what he’s doing even though he got fired. He’s doing what he loves, and that impressed me.”
