Singer Chris Brown has been denied a Visa allowing him into the UK, days before his UK tour was due to start.

The Singer, who was sentenced to six months of community labour for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rhianna, was due to kick off his UK tour in Glasgow tomorrow, yet this will no longer be the case due to his tour visa being declined.

The Home Office explained that he was refused due to the grounds of being guilty of a serious criminal offence.

This has now meant that the whole UK leg of the tour has been ‘postponed’ and are due to be rescheduled.

Chris Brown submitted his application on June 1st so has only learnt a day before the tour was due to commence that this is the case, leaving fans devastated.

The Home Office said in a statement:

”We reserve the right to refuse entry to the UK to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offence. Public safety is one of our primary concerns…Each application to enter the UK is considered on its individual merits.”

Tour promoters SJM also have stated:

”Due to unforeseen circumstances the Chris Brown UK tour … has unfortunately been postponed…’Ticket buyers should hold on to their tickets as there will be more news in the forthcoming days of possible rearranged dates.”
