Last month, New York radio station Power 105.1 (WWPR) announced Chris Brown would be headlining its Powerhouse concert this year, marking his first major promotional event since his February 8th altercation with ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Now, Jive Records -- the label Brown is signed to -- has revealed that he will also be going on a 19-city, small venue tour.
Dubbed the "Fan Appreciation" tour and aimed at acknowledging and thanking Brown's fans for their support, the trek begins at the House of Blues in Houston, Texas, on Nov. 14 and makes stops in Los Angeles, Atlanta and Brown's hometown of Virginia, before ending on Dec. 13 in Philadelphia.
A portion of the proceeds from the tour will be donated to Best Buddies International, a non-profit organization devoted to providing jobs and leadership opportunities for people with developmental disabilities. The Jenesse Center, a non-profit that provides culturally sensitive services to strengthen families and is based in Los Angeles, will also receive a portion of the proceeds.
