Hollywoodnews.com: From boos to cheers … overnight!

So goes Charlie Sheen’s “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option” tour which changed its format after a disastrous starts in Detroit and ended up slaying a sold-out Chicago crowd.

“Best time ever!” Sheen reportedly summed up after the show, according to THR, when he received a standing ovation.

Sheen started the Chicago show off with a Q-and-A, giving the actor plenty of opportunities to drop his famous catchphrases and slam his former bosses at “Two and a Half Men.”

“I made $5 billion for those a–holes and then they fired me. If I made $10 billion, they would have killed me in front of my family,” Sheen said.

Not everyone was amazed, though. Entertainment critic and journalist Richard Roeper Tweeted mid-show, “We are about 45 minutes into this. Whatever you’re doing right now, including sleeping, it’s probably more engaging than this.”
