Pop singer Chris Brown was recently denied entry into the United Kingdom and has been forced to postpone his upcoming UK Fan Appreciation Tour.

Brown had been scheduled to perform concerts in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow but the British government refused the singer a visa due to his past criminal record. SJM concerts officially announced Tuesday that the tour had been postponed “due to unforeseen circumstances.”

Due to unforeseen circumstances the Chris Brown UK tour starting tomorrow in Glasgow O2 Academy (9 June) and then subsequently at Birmingham O2 Academy (10 June), Manchester Apollo (11 June) and London HMV Hammersmith Apollo (13 June) has unfortunately been postponed. Ticket buyers should hold onto their tickets as there will be more news in the forthcoming days of possible rearranged dates.

Last year, Chris faced a judge on charges of assault and was sentenced to 5 years of probation and 6 months of community service for the beating of his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna.

The British government’s Home Office said Chris applied for his visa last week and was notified of its refusal Monday.
