Charlie Sheen's tour debuted on a low note in Detroit, Michigan on Saturday night (02Apr11) - the actor was booed offstage at the Fox Theatre.
The opening night of the fired sitcom star's My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Death is Not an Option Tour was an unmitigated disaster, according to critics and audience members alike.
The Los Angeles Times' theatre critic Charles MCNulty called the debut an "epic failure".
Reports suggest crowd members left the show in their droves while those who stayed booed the star as he tried his hand at comedy, poetry and rap.
Sheen's U.S. tour continues with another sold out show in Chicago, Illinois on Sunday (03Apr11).
