Back in September it seemed unlikely that Chris Brown was going to be able to enter Australia any time soon.
The Australian government issued the Virginia singer a notice of intention to consider refusal entry to the country, which would bar him and/or any tour possibilities if it went through. Faced with the reality, the tour’s promoter recently cancelled his Australian and New Zealand dates, according to Billboard, and issued a statement regarding the cancelation.
“Mr Brown and the promoters both remain positive that the tour will take place in the near future,” the One Hell of a Night tour promoter’s message stated. “Mr Brown wishes to express his deepest gratitude to the fans for their support and looks forward to a successful tour in the near future.”
Chris Brown was slated to make stops in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane between December 9 and December 16.
The original cause of blocking Breezy from entry was his alleged domestic abuse scandal with Rihanna. His other controversies over the years also didn’t help. Britain, Canada and New Zealand have also refused to issue Brown visas.
