Charlie Sheen bombs in Boston; Atlantic City next


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: I don’t want to be the one to tell you I told you so, but after Charlie Sheen received a standing ovation at the end of his second New York City show, I predicted his next event – in Boston – would bomb. The actor’s live tour has been a predictable roller coaster of extreme highs and desperate lows. After a win, Sheen usually loses.

Guess what happened?

Sheen bombed in Beantown, delivering one of the lackluster shows that have earned him boos and chased half of the audience away at the intermission.

The Boston Globe, under the headline “On Stage, Charlie Sheen Has Nothing to Say,” reported that people “left in droves” after determining that the show was “boring.”

“It was more of the same,” the Boston Globe writes, “trolls, warlocks, and Charlie begging for his job back on ‘Two and A Half Men.’”

How bad has it gotten for Sheen? Sports radio host Rich Shertenlieb Tweeted prior to the show that he bought a pair of regular priced tickets in the second row a half hour before the show, and also mentioned to his listeners that an employee at the venue told him he could bring friends to sit with him up front, meaning there were plenty of seats still available.

Next up? Sheen pulls his “Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour into Atlantic City’s Trump Taj Mahal on Saturday, April 16. The good news for ticket holders to that show is that Sheen’s due for a solid show, which is usually how he follows up a bomb.
