Chris Brown Announces Fan Appreciation Tour

October 20th, 2009 by Daniel Kreps Leave a reply »


Chris Brown listed fresh live dates in a post on his official Website on October 16th, and today his label confirmed the singer’s Fan Appreciation Tour — a 19-date trek that takes the “Forever” singer to intimate venues and clubs “conceptualized for and with ‘fans only’ in mind,” according to a press release. The tour will kick off November 14th in Houston and wrap a month later on December 15th with a show at New York’s Nokia Theater.

Proceeds from the tour will benefit a handful of charities, including Best Buddies International, an organization that works with children with intellectual disabilities, and Los Angeles’ Jenesse Center, a domestic violence intervention organization. Brown will also visit the Best Buddies International programs while on the road.

Brown was sentenced to probation, counseling and community labor for assaulting Rihanna earlier this year, and a judge must grant him permission to travel outside of Virginia. Perhaps not coincidentally, Brown’s announcement comes the same day Rihanna made headlines for releasing her first musical statement since the assault, the new single “Russian Roulette,” on her Website this morning.

As Rolling Stone previously reported, Brown will make his official advertised return to the stage for the first time since the February 8th incident next Tuesday, October 27th at the Powerhouse concert at New Jersey’s Giants Stadium.
