Charlie Sheen

Miguel Aguilar/Sam Sharma,

What do you do when your loyal, winning followers suddenly turn on you and smack you with boos and insults during your critically slammed live show? Most would quietly dip back under the radar with their tails between their legs.

But since Charlie Sheen doesn't even know where under the radar is located, he's doing the opposite. Sources tell E! News that Sheen has been working on a complete overhaul of his show since last night's Detroit disaster…

"He's been re-tooling and refining to make it better," a tour insider tells E! And Sheen reportedly spent his tour bus ride to Michigan not toasting to his opening night, but creating a different show. Sources reveal that he's been working at the Chicago Theatre all day trying to save his sinking tour. "It's a total reboot," says one source.

So what are the changes? Sheens' warm-up comic, Kirk Fox, has been axed after getting booed off the stage in Detroit. Also gone is the short '80s film Rocket Propelled Grenade starring Johnny Depp, which Sheen showed to the crowd because it was "about redemption." Turns out, the fans didn't care to sit there and watch it, and the boos started after ten minutes of film time.

Tonight's Chicago show (playing for 3,600 ticket-buyers) will blast off at 8 p.m. local time.
