Charlie Sheen Tour Defies Critics With Standing Ovation


Charlie Sheen's tour of the U.S. and Canada recovered with a standing ovation from the Chicago crowd last night (3rd March 2011), reports the Associated Press.
Sheen was heavily criticised for his opening performance on Sunday, which saw him rambling incoherently in front of a packed theatre in Detroit. According to some reports, audience members began leaving the show early after the actor attempted to screen a movie that he made with Johnny Depp in the 1980's. However, Sheen decided to change the format of the show for Chicago and simply "talked about his 7,000 marriages, his career and his goddesses". The former 'Two and a Half Men' star also took questions from the audience, including one about why he had used prostitutes in the past, to which he replied, "Because I had millions to blow. I ran out of things to buy". The audience reacted well to the show and gave Sheen a standing ovation.
Charlie Sheen's 'My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is not an Option Tour' continues Tuesday (5th March 2011) in Cleveland. The 45-year-old will then perform in Wallingford before moving on to the historic Radio City Music Hall in New York.
