59523242.jpgWhat, you say you haven't had enough of Charlie Sheen? Well, you're in luck: He's coming to Boston.

The former star of the CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men," who now streams his rants on an Internet talk show called "Sheen's Korner," is taking his act on the road. The tour bus (or maybe it's a flying saucer) will stop at Boston University's Agganis Arena on April 12. Tickets -- priced at $59.10 and $99.95, including fees -- go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m.

If you plan on buying tickets -- and who doesn't? -- you probably shouldn't wait very long. Sheen's April 2 and 3 shows in Detroit and Chicago sold out fast. Tickets for Sheen's "My Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour also go on sale tomorrow for shows April 5 in Cleveland, April 6 in Columbus, Ohio, April 8 at Radio City Music Hall in New York, and April 9 in Wallingford, Conn.

What his show consists of is anyone's guess. No doubt he'll be railing against his bosses at CBS, who fired him once they'd had enough of his verbal abuse and unsettling off-screen behavior, which included -- by Sheen's own admission -- plenty of drug abuse.

Fun for the whole family!
