Troubled US actor Charlie Sheen was heckled, booed and eventually abandoned by the crowd in a chaotic start to a live show mini-tour - a month after being sacked from his hit TV show.
Sheen kicked off the My Violent Torpedo Of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option tour in Detroit on Saturday.

The former Two And A Half Men star had initially been greeted with rapturous applause from the 5,000 strong-audience, but fans reportedly began to walk out within 15 minutes.

"It was the worst thing I've ever seen in my entire life - the show was horrible." said audience member Jennifer Pyryt.

The show, to a packed house of 5,000 people, had started well with a spoof involving news clips of the actor's recent outbursts, and high-action excerpts from classic movies including Apocalypse Now, starring his father, Martin.

He later told the crowd the show was "an experiment", adding: "You paid your hard-earned money without knowing what this show was about."

After commenting several times on the fact that he was being booed, and getting increasingly tetchy as the stream of people walking out grew, Sheen said he would take a break while a video of a new Snoop Dogg track was played.


When the video finished, the lights came up, and it was clear that Sheen was not coming back on stage.

Fans walked out chanting "Refund!" and were quick to express their disappointment outside.

"I don't think it was put together very well," added Mary, 41, saying things were not helped when the unpredictable Sheen tried to make a joke about Detroit's reputation.

"If he had not mentioned Detroit as a crack town, or the stealing of cars .. he turned a lot of people off," she said.


Sheen was sacked last month from the hit TV series Two And A Half Men after criticising its producers in a series of rambling media outbursts which Warner Brothers called "dangerously self-destructive conduct."

The 45-year-old then became an Internet sensation after launching a Twitter feed which now has 3.4 million followers, and an online webstreamed show, Sheen's Korner.

At the same time he announced his plans for the live tour, which now has more than 20 scheduled dates over the next month, after tickets for the first gigs sold out within 18 minutes.


Sheen's next show is due on Sunday evening in Chicago.

Meanwhile, Charlie's father Martin Sheen has described his troubled son Charlie's struggle with addiction as a disease "as dangerous as cancer".

"Charlie is dealing with the most profound problems and addiction - there's no secret, his behaviour has been an example of that," the 70-year-old actor told BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs.

He added: "It's a rollercoaster ride that's been going on for some time. So we deal with it, every day."

I loved Two & Half men, thought it was really a funny show. Always liked Charlie Sheen so it's sad he seems to be hellbent on destruction. I wonder how he'll go down on Chicago....Marty did you to this?

No I wouldn't pay money for that train wreck either. Well maybe I'd take a peek on youtube. I thought he hit rock bottom a month ago. He sure has a "high" tolerance.... for hitting "rock" bottom....

Why people give any credible to celebrities is beyond me. Who really cares what his opinion is..?

I get the feeling that when he hit's rock bottom for proper, he won't come back.
