LOS ANGELES -- Charlie Sheen is taking his show on the road.

A spokesman for the outspoken actor says tickets go on sale Saturday for shows in Detroit and Chicago next month called "Charlie Sheen Live: My Violent Torpedo of Truth."

Publicist Larry Solters says Sheen is promoting the show himself and has already begun rehearsals. Solters says he does not know the nature of the show or whether additional performances will be scheduled.

Sheen announced the show Thursday and Friday to his more than 2 million Twitter followers, calling it "the REAL story."

The 45-year-old actor was fired from the hit show "Two and a Half Men" on Monday. He sued Warner Bros. for $100 million Thursday. Hours later, he reached a custody agreement with his estranged wife over their twin sons.
