Charlie Sheen's 'Violent Torpedo of Truth' Tour Kicks Off

Jean Baptiste Lacroix/WireImage(DETROIT) -- Charlie Sheen's "Violent Torpedo of Truth" blasts onto stage Saturday. What comes with it remains unclear.

The former Two and a Half Men star and current online sensation is taking his rants and raves on the road, kicking off his month-long "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option" tour with a live show at Detroit's Fox Theater.

On Friday, Sheen talked about his debut show but offered little insight into what he has planned. He confirmed that his "goddesses" and rapper Snoop Dogg will be with him at the theater. When asked if he'll also rap, he said, "Depends what type of mood I'm in."

Initial reports said Sheen's Detroit show sold out on Ticketmaster in less than 20 minutes, but as of Friday afternoon, Ticketmaster was still showing seats available. There are plenty more to be had for his New York, Chicago, Cleveland, San Francisco, Denver and Dallas stops, among others.

Thousands of tickets people bought are being resold on sites like StubHub.com for a fraction of their original cost. As of Friday afternoon, tickets for the main floor of the Detroit show, originally $52, were going for as little as $14 each on StubHub.

Winning?! Charlie Sheen Reportedly Offered Job Back

Jean Baptiste Lacroix/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- After weeks listening to him rant and rave, after he slapped them with a $100 million lawsuit, could CBS and Warner Bros. actually want Charlie Sheen back?

Maybe. On Monday, multiple media outlets reported that the network and the studio have offered Sheen the Two and a Half Men gig they fired him from earlier this month.

According to HollywoodLife.com, Sheen's talks with CBS rival Fox about a possible late-night show prompted CBS to try and win him back. RadarOnline.com reported that CBS president and CEO Les Moonves has been talking with executives at Warner Bros. and series creator Chuck Lorre about finding a way to work with Sheen again.

Representatives for Sheen, CBS and Warner Bros. declined ABC News' requests for comment.

Two and a Half Men went on hiatus in January following Sheen's hospitalization and return to rehab. Sheen publicly slammed Lorre, Warner Bros., and CBS in a series of TV and radio interviews, claiming they prevented him from returning to work.

Minutes after CBS and Warner Bros. fired him on March 7, Sheen released a statement to TMZ.com, calling his dismissal "very good news."

"They continue to be in breach, like so many whales," Sheen said. "It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at [expletive] again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension." Some of the insults in Sheen's statement were presumably meant for Lorre.

Since being cut loose from the sitcom, CBS and Warner Brothers execs have watched Sheen's popularity explode: the actor launched a madcap web series that attracted tens of thousands of viewers, a merchandise line that is doing brisk business selling shirts emblazoned with his image and catchphrases, and Sheen recently set ticket sales records for a series of live performance dates.

Charlie Sheen Fired from 'Two and a Half Men'

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Looks like Charlie Sheen isn't "winning" anymore.

Warner Brothers Television announced in a statement on Monday that Sheen has been fired.

“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on Two and a Half Men effective immediately," the statement said.

CBS Television said they are declining comment at this time.

"This is very good news," Sheen said in a statement to TMZ.com. "They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshis[name] again" -- likely a reference to Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre -- "and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension."

Sheen has consistently petitioned to return to the set of the show in the endless series of interviews he's done in the past week.  On Thursday, he told a Philadelphia radio station that he was confident that the show would resume production, saying, "It feels like we're getting close to something...it feels like all parties, myself excluded, are finally waking up."

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban also told ESPNDallas.com that he was in talks with Sheen about collaborating on some new programming for HDNet, which Cuban owns.
