Is Charlie Sheen's "winning" streak coming to a quick end? Weeks ago, the wacky actor boasted that tickets to his first appearance on his comedy tour, "Violent Torpedo of Truth," had sold out rapidly. But now Ticketmaster is singing a different tune.
According to EW.com, there are plenty of seats still available for Sheen's Detroit shows through the box office, as well as online ticket exchange sites like Stubhub. Seats for Sheen's appearance are even going for less than face value in some cases, and there are reportedly more than 1,250 seats still available in the 5,000-seat venue.
"(The high resell percentage) is certainly more than we typically see," says Joellen Ferrer, public relations manager for Stubhub. "It seems like there were some buyers who were overly optimistic about the market for Sheen tickets; the supply has definitely outpaced demand."
Though some of of Sheen's future shows are indeed sold out for real (like his Radio City Hall appearance), insiders say that bad reviews may prevent any seats that remain for other shows from being sold.
"When you get down to a week or less before an event, you generally see a price drop, and that’s what you’re seeing here,” says Vaccaro. "If the first reviews are poor and bad word of mouth spreads, you could see demand dwindle down to nothing, with tickets going for a fraction of their face value."
On Monday Sheen accused ex-wife Denise Richards of dognapping their pug, which she took back from her ex after he neglected to take care of the pet.
"We must bombard with Warlock Napalm, that traitor and loser whore #DUH-neese POOR-ARD," he twittered. "A VILE KIDNAPPER AND NOW DOG THIEF. HATE."
Perhaps the public is finally getting tired of Charlie's craziness?
