In a heartfelt note on his Instagram page, Chris Brown has announced that he’s delaying the start of his upcoming tour.
I would first like to apologize to all the fans and people who have been supporters of me and all the music over the years. The beginning of the BTS tour has been moved to later dates now. The judge would not sign off on my travel to do the tour until I finish these last 100 hours of community service. I promise that I am busting my ass doing it everyday until it’s complete. This is the most disappointing news I’ve gotten in a while. Everything happens for a reason so I wanted to personally inform my fans. The show must go on. Out of 1000 hours I only have 100 left. I will work my ass off to complete it and I will be on that stage. Once again I’m sorry for the delay. I love yall! We will let yall know the dates that are changed. It’s not cancelled. Just moved around a couple weeks.
The singer, who has been whittling away at his court-ordered 1,000 hours of community service, hasn’t quite finished them all up.
He says he has 100 hours left and he must get that done before he can do his regular job — performing.
Brown, Trey Songz and Tyga were supposed to kick off the Between The Sheets tour in Hampton, Va., on Tuesday and Brown is working feverishly to complete the 100 hours.
The February 22 concert date at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC is not likely to be affected.
