There were only 7,500 fans on hand for Chris Brown's concert Friday at Tampa's 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre. But the female fans in the audience were fervent and passionate enough that it seems they've forgiven him for the Rihanna incident.

Sean Daly was there to observe Brown's Michael Jackson-like dance skills, and he writes:

His 90-minute set was a frenzy of dance and harmless R&B hits, all performed on a mondo four-tiered stage that looked a cross between Tron (ooh, spacey) and Solid Gold (ooh, 1982 strip club-y). ... Brown was a human special effect from the start, gliding, floating, singing (or at least mouthing along to) Say It With Me and Wall to Wall all while wearing combat boots. I repeat: COMBAT BOOTS. Let's see Baryshnikov do that!
