Charlie Sheen show a success in Cleveland

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."

    Amazing. Does this gentleman get a thrill whenever he sees a child in a wheelchair or an amputee? How nice to be reminded that someone has it worse. I suspect this is an example of the general mentality of Charlie Sheen's audience.

    Does anyone remember the movie "Network"? This is what this train wreck reminds me off. Charlie is Howard Beale, the mad prophet, and Live Nation is the avaricious network, making money off the mentally ill, and the sick public eats it up. Like that movie, I don't see a happy ending here either. Keep enabling people. As Skynard says, "Oooh, that smell".

    Charle Sheen talking/voice , reminds me of the 1957 movie "A face in the crowd" with Andy Griffith and Patricia Neal. I didn't care for that movie and I now don't care for Charle Sheen.

    I will say, whoever his manager is, he/she is doing a fabulous job. They sure knew how to take a career ending stunt and spin it.

    Looks like ol' Charlie has become a media wizard, a Hollywood powerhouse, a gift from God. Let's see If this cracksmoker can keep it up. I noticed that he hasn't tried to copywrite the phrase "Dude, I already have your money". Wonder how that could have skipped his wizard like mind.
