Chris Brown Denied Entry To Britain
R&B singer Chris Brown has canceled his summer European tour after a work visa was denied in the United Kingdom. Brown, 21, was denied entry to Britain on the basis of his past conviction for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, early 2009.
In a statement, the British Home Office explained, "We reserve the right to refuse entry to the U.K. to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offense. Public safety is one of our primary concerns.... Each application to enter the U.K. is considered on its individual merits." The tour was due to have started in Glasgow, Scotland on Wednesday, followed by shows in Birmingham, Manchester and London before stopping in Cork and Dublin, Ireland.
The tour's promoter, SJM, advised fans to hold on to their tickets for "possible re-arranged dates."
Brown initially responded on his Twitter, but the post has since been removed. "SORRY to all the fans in europe!!! my tour is cancelled," he originally tweeted on Monday. "Im pretty sure yall know. my entry was denied in your country. i love you. SORRY!!" – NATTHAKAN GARUNRANGSEEWONG
