Sheen Critiques His Performances, Explains How He Turned Things Around After Detroit Debacle

Apr 4, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Charlie Sheen took time out after his triumphant concert Sunday night in Chicago to critique the first two shows of his "My Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour–including the much publicized disaster the night before in Detroit, E! Online reported.

"There’s a couple things here I’ve got to f–king work out," he told the publication.

Sheen indicated he’s leaning more toward the raw, spontaneous format featured in Chicago, including expanding the Q&A segment, and getting away from the highly produced elements emphasized in the Detroit show.

He admitted to having second thoughts after the Detroit show. “Yeah, so there was a moment on the bus when it was like, we can just keep going, we can drive home," he told the publication.

But instead of heading home, the actor and his crew got to work on the next show. Said Sheen: "Yeah, we talked about it on the bus coming back, tons of input, then when I got back to the hotel and I wrote, we started writing, just to get some thoughts out, some feelings out, just some stuff that would be interesting, just stories, you know, themes, whatever, just bullet points.

"I was up till about 5, 6:30 [in the morning], kept working on it, came here [to the venue] at 8:30, sat on the stage, looked out, came up with just the chair idea and we started talking about it … the interview thing. And then I went back and took a two-hour nap and came here and did it.”

The result, the story reports, was “the much more raw and real presentation he gave in the Windy City, which saw him fielding questions from an interviewer and the occasional fan and telling stories about his surreal celebrity life.”

Sheen’s next tour stop is Tuesday night in Cleveland.

  1. It is nice to see the negative response, but before we heap too much praise on the people who heckled and walked out on the show… they’re still people who decided in the first place to give him their money and show up at all. I’d say it falls more into the category of ‘better late than never’.
