Chris Brown cancels Australia, New Zealand tour.

American R&B singer Chris Brown has cancelled a planned tour to Australia and New Zealand, his promoter said Wednesday, after officials indicated he would be denied a visa over his conviction for assaulting pop star Rihanna. Australia suggested in September it would block Brown’s entry due to his criminal record, disrupting plans to bring his “One Hell of a Nite” tour Down Under. It is not known whether Australia’s immigration department ultimately denied Brown a visa, and a spokesman saying it could not comment on the case “for reasons of privacy”. The Grammy award-winning performer was sentenced to five years’ probation — now lifted — a year-long anti-domestic violence programme and 180 days of community labour. Brown has visited Australia twice since 2009 but newly appointed Minister for Women Michaelia Cash had suggested he may be banned this time amid heightened awareness about family violence.

While his case for a New Zealand concert found unlikely support from some Maori women’s advocates, support for the singer was not unanimous, with family and victims groups opposing his visit.
