Chris Brown pulls out of New Year countdown at PH Arena
MANILA, Philippines–American singer Chris Brown canceled from performing at the Philippine Arena for a New Year’s Eve concert on Wednesday night.
Media reports said Brown–who was supposed to be the show’s biggest draw–informed the organizers that he lost his passport and could not fly to the Philippines.
On Twitter, he said, “#TeamBreezyManila! Due to unfortunate circumstances I can’t bring in the new year with you…”
He said he was also disappointed, especially since the Philippine Arena, recently opened in Bocaue, Bulacan, “is one of the best arenas in the world.”
Nevertheless, he said he will be in Manila in Spring, which begins in March in the United States.
While Brown is already out of the lineup, the countdown will still feature performances from Bamboo, Sam Concepcion and Enrique Gil, among others.
Tickets cost P725 to P3605.
