Chris Brown axes four Canadian dates, citing ‘personal and health-related issues’

- August 19th, 2013

Controversial R&B star Chris Brown has axed his four-stop Canadian tour due to “recent personal and health-related issues.”

Brown was scheduled to perform in Halifax, Saint John, N.B., Toronto and Winnipeg.

On Friday, a judge had his probation reinstated and was sentenced to 1,000 hours of community labour after he was involved in an alleged hit-and-run accident.

Brown also suffered a seizure earlier this month while at a recording studio in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.

Residents of Halifax were up in arms after it was announced that Brown was playing there — even mayor Mike Savage got involved. He stated that Brown is a horrible role model and was disappointed that he was coming to the city. Petitions were soon started up, with Winnipeg and Toronto folks getting involved as well.

Sounds like at least some people are thrilled about the nixed dates.

    ^ A wee bit of profiling there with the “neck tattoos” comment eh Shawne? For your comment to be taken into consideration, you need to lay off the kool-aid buddy…
