Chris Brown, 50 Cent, more coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa
Prepare to party down while wrestling with your moral and ethical self.
Perpetually embattled R&B superstar Chris Brown is coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa on April 16, the venue announced Tuesday. He's billing it "The Party Tour," and as a result he's bringing a boatload of hitmakers along for the ride: 50 Cent, Fabolous, O.T. Genasis and Kap G. Tickets to the show start at $26.20 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. Click here for details.
Of course, that's assuming you actually want to buy them. Plenty of folks don't, considering Brown's history of aggressive, violent and all-around jerklike behavior. Pick any example you like; the most recent is a recent beef with Soulja Boy that was supposed to end in a boxing match. None of that really matters to the Chris Brown truthers out there; to them, he's simply a stellar singer, dancer and hitmaker who's been victimized by the media.
If you're still on the fence, or at least have no problem separating the art from the artist, click here for details on the show.
