Charlie Sheen coming to the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa
We hope you trolls aren't totally sick of Charlie Sheen at this point. Because you're about to get a whole lot more of him here in Tampa Bay.
Yes, this is for real.
Sheen's "Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option Tour" is hitting cities nationwide. Ticketmaster is filing it under "comedy," which sounds about right, but we expect more of a Conan O'Brien-style roadshow, but less professional, and more crazy. TMZ says Mr. Tiger Blood will earn $7 million for this tour, and according to his website, $1 from each ticket sold will go to Red Cross earthquake and tsunami relief in Japan.
Tickets to the show at the Forum -- which looks like it will be set up in the Forum's theatre-style arrangement -- go onsale at 10 a.m. Saturday (3/19), and will cost $46.75-$86.75. Get them quickly, because tickets to Sheen's shows in Chicago and Detroit sold out in under 20 minutes. It appears there will also be a meet-and-greet, but those details are not yet available.
