Charlie Sheen's tour just keeps on rolling.

The self-proclaimed warlock touched down at Radio City Hall Friday night for the first of two sold-out Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option shows.

So was this appearance a repeat of the admitted bomb in Detroit?

Not exactly, but Sheen wasn't much of a hit, either.

The show kicked off with a standing ovation for the actor, who sported a New York Yankees hat and shirt.

Naturally, the former Two and a Half Men star discussed his infamous stay at NYC's Plaza Hotel last year, in which he was hospitalized after allegedly being found intoxicated inside his trashed suite.

"This gorgeous yet overpaid [woman]…followed me up to my room. Maybe I invited her but it's my story," Sheen said during the show. "Next thing I know, I'm naked taking Ambien and attacking the cops. Ambien, the devil's aspirin...Next thing I know, she locked herself in the bathroom with my watch and my wallet. Did I throw a chair at the door? Yes. I just wanted my $375,000 watch back."

Then it was on to Two and a Half Men, where Sheen explained: "I didn't quit. I gave you guys almost a decade of bitching entertainment and they fired me." To which he added, "Of course I want my job back."

While he skipped taking shots at the show's head honcho, Chuck Lorre, Sheen joked about another former boss, Oliver Stone, who directed him in Wall Street and Platoon.

"I'll buy an Academy Award from Oliver Stone 'cause he's now broke," Sheen said. "His movies now suck! Anyone seen Wall Street 2?"

Not even that joke could get the audience to stick around, however, as some attendees reportedly booed and walked out of the venue before the show ended.

On that note, Sheen cut the appearance short, ending about 30 minutes earlier than his shows in Ohio, and closing with these semi-kind words: "I love you, New York. You're the best crowd ever—well, some of you."
