Chris Brown pulls out Guyana concert after public protests

Saturday, November 24, 2012

American performer Chris Brown has backed out of a performance in Guyana after protests there over his 2009 beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna, according to a concert promoter. Brown had been booked to headline the December 26 Unforgettable II show, but Hits and Jams Entertainment Group says his management pulled the artist amid recent media reports of protests by women’s rights groups and some lawmakers.


Brown’s representative did not respond immediately to’s request for comment, but told E! online on Thursday: “This concert was never confirmed. The promoter is being untruthful.” Hits and Jams posted the announcement that Brown, 23, was cancelling on its Web site on Wednesday: 



“The management team in a correspondence to HJ Entertainment said they do not feel comfortable at this stage allowing the multi-award-winning singer to come to Guyana as they have been following reports in the local and international press about the protests over his Guyana appearance.”
