Charlie Sheen's 'Violent Torpedo of Truth' Earns Mixed NYC Reception

Jeff Vespa/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- There were more ups and downs for Charlie Sheen's Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option tour this past weekend.

Much of his Friday night show at New York City's famed Radio City Music Hall was drowned out by boos and heckling, much like his Detroit debut two weeks ago.  However, his follow up in Connecticut Saturday night, by all accounts, went better.  Same goes for his return to New York City Sunday evening.

While Friday's New York show ended a half-hour early when the heckling hit a fever pitch, reports the Connecticut date ended with an impromptu, and well-received, musical performance.  The gossip site reports an audience member who was booted by security was invited to the stage by the former Two and a Half Men star, and accompanied Sheen on harmonica as he sang. 

Sunday night's return to Radio City began with Sheen taking the stage "to a standing ovation," according to TMZ, with a surprised Sheen himself admitting, "I don't even think I was here Friday night."  Sheen strolled through the enthused crowd, cracked some jokes with Inside the Actors Studio host James Lipton, and brought former baseball great Darryl Strawberry to the stage.

So what was different the second time around?  Sheen told the audience, "Friday night got a little [expletive] hijacked because I let people get into my magic [expletive] brain."
