Sheen's headed for the Taj Mahal

As expected, Charlie Sheen's "Violent Torpedo of Truth, Defeat Is Not an Option tour is headed to Atlantic City.

Hollywoodreporter.com is reporting the world's most popular reprobate has been booked for an April 16 gig at Trump Taj Mahal.

Details are sparse, but the website indicates the Taj gig is one of a slew of dates - including two sold-out programs at New York's Radio City Music Hall - that have been added to the tour planned by the former "Two And A Half Men" star.

While details of the AyCee engagement are sparse, the London Daily Mail is reporting tickets for the Radio City appearances carry a face value between $79.50 and $519. The Reporter has put Sheen's fee for the first two shows at $150,000 per night.

While it wouldn't be surprising if this ultimately changes, it is interesting that Atlantic City is on Sheen's itinerary but Las Vegas - which seems tailor-made for a man of Sheen's appetites and predilections - is not.

"We're beyond thrilled to have the reigning top celeb in the world presented at Trump Taj Mahal," said Steve Gietka, vice president of entertainment at Trump Entertainment Resorts. "His legion of loyal fans will definitely be out to show their support and have the time of their lives"

And what exactly is Sheen going to do?

Said Gietka: "I wish I knew. Charlie Sheen... Winning, don't miss it!"
