Chris Brown postpones tour after UK Visa rejection
Chris Brown has postponed indefinitely the European leg of his current tour that was due to start tomorrow after being refused entry into the UK.
The musician was scheduled to start his Fan Appreciation Tour tommorrow in Glasgow but has been forced to postpone the events after he was refused a UK Visa by UK Immigration officials.
Brown's UK Visa application may have been rejected due to his conviction for assaulting his ex-girlfriend Rihanna last February. The singer was sentenced to six months community labour, five years probation, and ordered to stay away from the singer after pleading guilty to felony assault.
Brown used Twitter to announce the news: "“SORRY to all the fans in Europe! My tour is cancelled. I'm pretty sure y'all know. My entry was denied in your country. I love you. SORRY!!".
A statement from his spokesperson reads, "Due to issues surrounding his work visa, (the) Ireland and United Kingdom leg of Chris Brown's Fan Appreciation Tour has been postponed. Chris looks forward to performing for his fans abroad in the near future and thanks them for their continued support".
The tour was to begin in Glasgow tomorrow before gigs in London, Birmingham and Manchester, as well as Cork and Dublin in Ireland.
It is not known if the tour will be rescheduled.
