New York: Charlie Sheen is expected to bank a whopping 7 million dollars from his live tour.

The fired star of ‘Two and a Half Men’ is expected to rake this cool amount from the 21 dates on his newly expanded comedy tour, his paid after-party appearances and merchandising, reports a website.

The adults-only ‘Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option’ show added a dozen new cities, including Atlantic City, N.J., on April 16 and Vancouver, British Columbia, on May 2.

While details are scarce, the act is set to last one hour and 15 minutes, with Sheen getting 85 percent of the profits and his partner Live Nation getting the rest, reports a newspaper.

Sheen will do his act sitting in chair and there`s been no advertising budget beyond the actor`s already dominant Internet presence.
