    (AP) DETROIT - Charlie Sheen and his "goddesses" took the stage to thunderous applause Saturday night for the first leg of his "Torpedo of Truth" tour. The 70-minute show hadn't even ended when the first reviews were in, and they were brutal.

    The former "Two and a Half Men" star showed that comedic success on the screen doesn't necessarily translate to the stage, and the capacity crowd at the 5,100-seat Fox Theatre rebelled before he left the stage, chanting "refund!" and walking out in droves.

    Linda Fugate, 47, of the Detroit suburb of Lincoln Park, walked outside and up the block yelling, "I want my money back!"

    She said she paid $150 for two seats.

    "I was hoping for something. I didn't think it would be this bad."

    Fans who gathered outside the theater before the doors opened Saturday- some who had to fly in for the show- said they were hoping to see the increasingly eccentric actor deliver some of the colorful rants that have made him an Internet star since his ugly falling out with CBS and the producers of "Two and a Half Men."

    They got the ranting. It just wasn't funny.

    "I expected him to at least entertainment a little bit. It was just a bunch of ranting," said Rodney Gagnon, 34, of Windsor, Ontario.

    Promising to give fans "the real story," the 45-year-old Sheen kicked off a month-long, 20-city tour Saturday night, with the second show scheduled for Sunday in Chicago.

    The show started well for Sheen, as the crowd stood and cheered as he and the women he calls his "goddesses" took the stage. The women, one a former porn star and the other an actress, carried signs with the words "War" and "Lock," references to one of the catchphrases Sheen recently coined.

    "I don't see a single empty seat," he said. … 91698.html

      i'm suprised anyone would pay 150.00 for 2 seats to see him with a;ll he's done.  Getting booed is just another sign that he really messed up. The question is, will he see it?

    I am not one bit surprised at how his "show" turned out.  As soon as I heard about him doing this, exactly what I predicted would happen, did. He and his ridiculous bimbo "goddesses" wouldn't last on stage. He's finished unless he gets real with himself and seeks some help. I truly hope he does. He has 4 young children who need him, sober, and sane.
