Maybe it really was Detroit.
Charlie Sheen's 20-city tour rolled through Cleveland, Ohio, Tuesday night where many fans embraced the actor's stage show, according to CNN Cleveland affiliate WJW.
"It was interesting," attendee Steve Novak told the television station. "It took my mind off my everyday troubles. Made me think that even someone like him with tons of money and famous friends can have problems."
Sheen received a standing ovation from the crowd after he took to the Playhouse Square stage wearing a Cleveland Indians baseball jersey, People reported.
The actor portrayed a Cleveland Indians player in the film Major League and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Sheen drew applause and cheers when he told the audience he wants to film "Major League 3" in their city.
CNN iReporter Reginald Bradshaw happened upon Sheen while he met with fans at the Ritz Carlton before the show.
"He was walking back into the hotel, I was walking towards the ATM and happened to see a bunch of fans coming up to him so I shot a video," Bradshaw said. "They were pretty excited to see him, they were surprised."
Sheen's My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option tour was not as warmly received on its opening night in Detroit.
He fared better at his next stop in Chicago, where he received a standing ovation. Like at the show in Chicago, the audience in Cleveland reportedly chanted "Detroit sucks."
