Charlie Sheen's tour of the U.S. and Canada recovered in Chicago last night (3rd March 2011) after a faltering open night in Detroit, reports CNN.
The 45-year-old came in for heavy criticism after Saturday's show, where he attempted to screen a number of random video clips before being booed by the audience. However, the troubled actor has been praised for his recovery in Chicago, with Cnn writer RACHEL WELLS noting, "Was Saturday night some crazy bad dream? Because the Charlie Sheen show I saw at the Chicago Theatre on Sunday night bore absolutely no resemblance to whatever it was the Detroit crowd and I think we witnessed on Saturday". Sheen had made a number of changes to the format since the nightmare opening and the actor was described as "relaxed and smoking" as he told a series of hilarious anecdotes. He entertained the sold-out crowd with a story of how he turned down the role of the original 'Karate Kid' movie to instead work on 'Predator 2' and joked about his father Martin Sheen's bad career advice.
The 'Violent Torpedo of Truth' tour moves on to Cleveland on Tuesday (5th April 2011) before passing through Columbus, New York and Wallingford. Fans attending the shows have been eager to get their hands on the exclusive Charlie Sheen tour merchandise, which include hats that bare the slogan, "I'm not bipolar".
