We might have to expand the timeline of all Chris Brown's legal misadventures in Tampa Bay.

There was the time in 2007 his bodyguards allegedly struck a photojournalist outside a St. Petersburg nightclub. There was the time in 2017 when another photographer alleged that Brown punched him during an after-party in Tampa. There was his show last summer when he took the stage in Tampa less than 24 hours after being arrested on an outstanding felony warrant in West Palm Beach.

And now comes word Brown is returning to Tampa Bay, with a new concert set for Amalie Arena.

The oft-embattled R&B star's new INDIGOAT Tour will arrive in Tampa on Aug. 31. Joining him is a good contingent of hip-hop and R&B stars: Tory Lanez, Ty Dolla $ign, Joyner Lucas and Yella Beezy. Tickets start at $39.75 and up, and go on sale Friday. Click here for details.

For all his critics and naysayers, Breezy still has no problem selling tickets or getting famous friends to have his back. His latest single No Guidance features Drake, and his new album Indigo features Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, G-Eazy, H.E.R. and many more. This new show will probably pack out Amalie.

Whatever happens after the concert, though, is anyone's guess. But it's sure to get a lot of people talking.
