Last night Charlie Sheen made it to Everett, smoked on stage, swore a lot and even gave a woman the shirt off his back. Here’s a link to the You Tube video of that. I was out-of-town and didn’t see the show but here’s a less than stellar review from The Herald’s Jackson Holtz. Thanks again to all who donated to Charity not Charlie.

The Charity not Charlie campaign has wrapped up and another $100.00 donation will go to Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County. Thanks to all who participated.
Here are a few notes for those who decide to spend their money on Charlie.
Because Washington State law prohibits smoking inside Comcast Arena Everett, Charlie may be forced to smoke an electronic cigarette on stage instead of lighting up real cigarettes as he has in most of the other shows.
There are a LOT of tickets still available at prices way under face value. Here’s a listing of more than 100 sellers on Craigslist over the last two days.
Where will the scalpers be? According to Everett City ordinance you can’t sell tickets in front of Comcast Arena Everett or within a one block radius of the center.
Last night’s show in Vancouver BC was poorly attended and not very well received according to this review in the Vancouver Sun.
The Everett Police are treating this show like any other that comes to Comcast Arena Everett with no special plans to beef up security. Any incidents inside the arena will be up to Comcast to handle as they do usually.
Since its an all adult show with no one under 18 allowed to buy tickets, it will be interesting to see if there are people checking ID at the door to make sure no minors are exposed to warlock ramblings or tiger blood.
What jersey will Sheen wear onstage? Everett Silvertips? Washington Stealth? Everett Aquasox? Since the stop is billed as Seattle in most places, will it be Mariners or Seahawks?
Anyway, thanks for supporting Charity not Charlie and though I believe this show was a mistake, hats off to Comcast Arena Everett for the recent announcements of American Idol, Alan Jackson and KISS coming to town. Let’s hope for more soon.

Sheen gets booed big time , Here’s a review of his opening night performance from the Detroit Free Press According to reports, his two goddesses were kissing, two adult entertainers sang the national anthem, he ran a bunch of video clips and tried to defend himself as the crowd was booing and asking for refunds. Here’s an excerpt from a review shortly after the show from the Hollywood Reporter,
“Sheen then asked the audience what they wanted to hear. He shot down someone’s suggestion of AA stories, calling it boring, and promised to talk about crack instead.
“I figured Detroit was a good place to tell crack stories,” he quipped.
Loud boos and shouts of “You suck!” throughout the disastrous affair eventually caused Sheen to retort, “Already got your f—ing money, dude.”
It will be interesting to find out what kind of guarantee Comcast Arena put up to get the show. Tickets in Everett are not selling well and after the reviews of his opening night show, whoever does the booking for Everett’s Premier Entertainment Facility may want to avoid going after any more “Adult Entertainment.” By the way, I thought you couldn’t have 18 and over adult entertainment in downtown Everett, that there were limited zoning areas that were way out on the edge of town for that kind of thing…

It’s been interesting to see the uproar being caused by the announcement that Charlie Sheen is coming to Everett on May 3rd. Today, Julie Muhlstein in this morning’s Daily Herald had a column about the appearance sending the wrong message on drug abuse and reminding people that the show was for those 18 and over. Yesterday, Kristi O’Harran wrote, “Phooey on Charlie Sheen”. Also Yesterday Vancouver B. C. radio station News 1130 did an on-air interview with me and donations started coming in from Canada to Everett Charities. On Monday, after doing an on-air interview with them, KMPS Radio host Potter, of Candy and Potter purchased the domain name “CharityNotCharlie” and linked that to the RelyLocal Everett-Mukilteo page explaining the campaign and how to donate. Also on Monday, MyNorthwest.com reported tickets sales were slow. The media coverage started Sunday night when KOMO TV aired this story about the “Charity Not Charlie” campaign.Now I’m not against Comcast Arena in any way and have in fact followed and supported the arena since it was first proposed. I don’t think however that having Charlie Sheen in an “Adults Only – Must Be 18 to Purchase Tickets” performance is the best way to represent Everett. There are however people who think the show is great as shown here with an interview of the first person to buy tickets on Saturday. To each their own…
