Brown Postpones Tour Over Britain Ban

CHRIS BROWN has postponed the European leg of his current tour after he was denied entry into the U.K.
The Kiss Kiss hitmaker was due to bring his Fan Appreciation Tour to Europe but he's been forced to call off the dates after British immigration officials refused to grant him a work visa.
It is believed Brown's application was rejected due to a conviction stemming from his fight with Rihanna last year (09). The singer was sentenced to six months community labour, five years probation, and ordered to stay away from the Umbrella hitmaker after pleading guilty to felony assault.
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 trek was due to begin in Glasgow, Scotland on Wednesday (09Jun10), before stopping in London, Birmingham and Manchester, England as well as Cork and Dublin in Ireland.

I am so sick and tire that Chris life is being alter because of one mishap. Enough for God sake leave the boy alone. He has paid enough for this one mistake. We his fan have the right to enjoy the gift that have brought him to this place in his life. We want more and more of what he has to offer us as his fan. He is an excellent entertainer. The UK nor the United States will NOT stop him.

Enough is enough leave Chris alone. We as his fans have had enough of this nonsense. He has paid his time and dues for one mishap. Like so many that believe like me all I say ALL have sin and fallen short of the glory of God. The people who are trying to bring shame to his name and career have not gotten caught. But what you do to others will come back to haunt you. Stop trying to destroy him. We as his fans need to stand together and rally on his behalf and say we wan't take this anymore!
