UPDATED 6 p.m.: Tickets prices high; Charlie Sheen coming to Tampa: The most watched train wreck in history headed this way

UPDATED 6 p.m.: Tickets for the Tampa show go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday (3/19); range from $46.75 to $104.45, according to

Charlie Sheen's "My Violent Torpedo of Truth" will hit the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa on April 22.

Here's the deal:
Charlie Sheen will make $7 million dollars on his "Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour ... TMZ has learned. Sources connected with the concert tour tell us ... the deal is for Charlie to perform on 21 dates. He'll get 85% of the profits, with Live Nation getting the remaining 15%.  Charlie's cut is projected to average between $250,000 - $275,000 for each show ...

The show will last 1 hour and 15 minutes.  It's essentially Charlie doing comedy in a chair, so the overhead is minimal.

And since the shows are selling out off of Charlie's Twitter, there are no advertising costs.

Tickets for Sheen's Tampa appearance not available yet.

The media should cease and desist everything Charlie Sheen for the good of young people and others 'caught out' in the throw's of addiction. We are watching an addict taking an 'added value' route to self destruction.Those who have found a way 'out of hell' know all to well and good Charlie Sheen is not a rock star to idolize , he's a "Major League " A-hole. Our soldiers are ROCKSTAR'S to be IDOLIZIED
