Charlie Sheen's Radio City Music Hall stage shows sell out in minutes
UPI News Service, 03/18/2011
Charlie Sheen's stage show at Radio City Music Hall in New York sold out of tickets in minutes, officials of the 6,000-seat venue said.
After weeks of giving outrageous radio, television and online interviews, the former "Two and a Half Men" star announced he is going to take his rants on the road and star in a stage show called "Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth."
People.com reported Friday the first Radio City Music Hall show sold out in less than 30 minutes. A second show at the theater was added and also sold out in minutes.
Tickets to the show range in price from $79.50 to $519. For $750, fans can actually meet the actor, People.com said.
Shows scheduled for Chicago, Boston and Detroit also sold out quickly.
Sheen has been battling an addiction to drugs for some time and has made headlines in recent weeks for a series of high-profile interviews, during which he blasted his employers at "Two and a Half Men," his family and various ex-girlfriends, joked about his substance abuse and bragged about his own importance.
His erratic behavior prompted the producers of his show to cancel it the rest of this season, then fire him. It is unclear whether the show will continue without Sheen. The actor filed a $100 million lawsuit against his former bosses for breach of contract.
Sheen's longtime publicist quit recently. The actor's estranged wife, Brooke Mueller, requested a restraining order against him and his children were removed by police from his home.
