Charlie Sheen's live shows a fast sellout

      NEW YORK (AP) " Charlie Sheen wants you to know the tickets are gone for his pair of live appearances next month.

      The outspoken actor has tweeted: "Fastball; Detroit/Chicago sold out in minutes... Thanks to Sheen's Cadre..!"

      No details about the show have been disclosed, but it's being billed as "Charlie Sheen Live: My Violent Torpedo of Truth."

      Sheen spokesman Larry Solters confirmed Sunday the April 2 and 3 appearances are sold out.

      Sheen announced the show last week to his more than 2 million Twitter followers, calling it "the REAL story."

      Earlier in the week, the 45-year-old actor was fired from the hit CBS show "Two and a Half Men." He then sued the show's producers for $100 million for breach of contract.
