Charlie Sheen: Changes to Happen on Live Shows
“There's a couple things here I've got to f--king work out," he says, including integrating more Q&A with the crowd.
Charlie Sheen knows he has a lot of improvements to make on his My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option live-show tour.
The actor — who was booed in Detroit Saturday and given a standing ovation in Chicago Sunday — says changes may happen to the show, which heads to Cleveland, Ohio, Tuesday and Columbus Wednesday, before stopping at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall Friday for two weekend dates.
"There's a couple things here I've got to f--king work out," he tells E! News. "I don't know if I start the show alone and it turns into this [a Q&A format] or I just stay with this 'cause it's f--king working and we'll f--king return to it if I don't."
Specifically, Sheen said that he was thinking about integrating more Q&A with the crowd, though he added he wasn’t sure how much "truth" he'll divulge.
"We've already got [questions] submitted and we say, you know, so-and-so from f--king Bakersfield or Loserville, F--king Michigan, wants to know," he says. "Then it's like, 'Yeah, I don't feel like talking about that' [or] 'You know, that's a really good f--king question, wow." '
As for his Detroit disaster, Sheen said, "Yeah, we talked about it on the bus coming back, tons of input, then when I got back to the hotel and I wrote, we started writing, just to get some thoughts out, some feelings out, just some stuff that would be interesting, just stories, you know, themes, whatever, just bullet points.”
"I was up till about 5, 6:30 [in the morning], kept working on it, came here at 8:30, sat on the stage, looked out, came up with just the chair idea and we started talking about it...the interview thing. And then I went back and took a two-hour nap and came here and did it,” he added.”
His preparation worked, as he appeared to be a hit with Chicagoans.
He said after Detroit, “there was a moment on the bus when it was like, we can just keep going, we can drive home." But in the end, Sheen said he realized, “I just, you know, needed a bigger challenge."
