Charlie Sheen bringing his “Torpedo” tour overseas?

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Will Charlie Sheen’s “winning” ways translate for a foreign audience? Is “winning” a global concept?

Team Sheen is about to find out. During an interview with an Australian radio station this weekend, Sheen revealed plans to revamp his “Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour and take it overseas.

“Why don’t I take this thing on the road to Australia, parts of Europe, parts of Asia. If I pick out six cities over two weeks and if it wasn’t about violent torpedoes and truth seeking but more about an evening with Charlie Sheen, if I told people what to expect maybe they wouldn’t heckle me like the drunk clowns that they are, ” Sheen reportedly said.

Insulting the audience? Now that’s now you sell tickets!

Actually, Sheen was only insulting U.S. audiences, and was quick to point out that international crowds will understand him better.

“It would seem like the European mentalities would give me a little more time and a little more patience to actually listen and embrace a format like that, where they come in knowing what to expect,” Sheen said.

    Sheen has no idea that Europe and Australia have not the same patience that the USA does with his poor “performance art”. Considering he got “Booed off stage” here and met with less than flattering reviews; he is seriously mistaken about running his little show into the ground. He may not realize that may people overseas don’t find a blathering of 4-letter words and jabs at an ex-wife to be humor.
    The interesting thing is that none of his handlers have the guts or knowledge to make clear that his “style” is looked upon as typical to the “Hollywood” ugliness that may make for discussion but not for enjoyable entertainment.
