So yeah, as I stated in a previous post, I was one of the dumbasses who bought into Charlie Sheen’s tour by coughing up hard earned cash. As with most things in life, I’m keeping my expectations very low and betting the comedy of watching him crash & burn on stage to everyone’s delight will be worth at least half the ticket price. As for the other half, fuck it.
All reports are pretty bad, but following his atrocious performance in D-Town, Charlie & his team tweaked the show for Chicago. While still bad, it apparently didn’t suck as painfully as the first show.
Here’s more juice about the first show from NJ.com:
Death may not have been an option, but bombing was on the menu in the Motor City — the crowd jeered his opening act offstage, and met Sheen’s “radical rants” with boos, calls for refunds and walkouts.
The national press damned the show: “The Malibu messiah’s stab at demagoguery died a quick and not entirely painless death,” wrote Charles McNulty of the Los Angeles Times. “The humiliation, however, wasn’t easy to watch. It’s one thing to read about the missteps of the rich and famous; it’s another to see a celebrity fall flat on his face in front of several thousand people. Rage, Sheen’s default mode, wasn’t an option. The fed-up hordes at the sold-out Fox would have trampled him. The indulgent love of his fans had transformed into deep distrust, if not disgust. The outlaw was revealed to be a spoiled brat.” [Source]
