Chatting with Billy V: March 14, 2011

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Remember mallet-swinging comedian Gallagher? He collapsed on stage during a performance in Minnesota Thursday night. Gallagher, 65, slammed something with his sledgehammer, then hunched over and fell backwards onto the stage. He was transported to Saint Mary's Hospital shortly after the incident, and on Friday was awake, making jokes, and laughing. His next few shows were canceled.

Charlie Sheen continued his takeover of the Internet Saturday when tickets to his upcoming two-stop tour, "Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option," sold out in just 18 minutes; a Ticketmaster record.  April 2 at the Fox Theatre Detroit and April 3 at the Chicago Theatre; reportedly Charlie wants to add more dates.

Charlie Sheen will donate a portion of the profits from his live stage shows to victims of the natural disasters in Japan. Charlie says $1 from every ticket to his sold-out "My Violent Torpedo Of Truth" tour will go to the Red Cross Japanese earthquake relief fund.
