Charlie Sheen brings live show to Detroit, Chicago

LOS ANGELES -- Charlie Sheen is taking his show on the road.
A spokesman for the outspoken actor said 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 said Sheen is promoting the show himself and has already begun rehearsals. Solters said 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 CBS show "Two and a Half Men" on Monday. He sued the show's producers Thursday for $100 million for breach of contract. Hours later, he reached a custody agreement with his estranged wife over their twin sons.
Sheen has been making headlines with his colorful, rambling interviews, in which he has claimed to be a "Vatican assassin warlock" with "tiger blood" and "Adonis DNA."
Solters is apparently replacing the actor's longtime publicist, Stan Rosenfield, who abruptly resigned two weeks ago when Sheen began giving interviews to various news outlets and radio programs. Solters described himself Friday as "a warlock in training."
