According to Jive Records, Chris Brown is gearing up to do a small, 19-city “Fan Appreciation” tour to acknowledge and thank his fans for their on-going support.
The tour begins at the House of Blues in Houston, Texas on November 14th and ends December 15th in New York City.
The label reports that the tour is conceptualized for and with “fans only” in mind, so intimate venues were selected for these concerts. Or maybe more realistically, C. Breezy isn’t selling out stadiums at this stage in his career.
A portion of the proceeds from this tour will be donated to Best Buddies International, the world’s largest non-profit organization devoted solely to providing friendships, jobs and leadership opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
While on tour, Chris plans to visit with Best Buddies participants, as well as encourage his fans to consider volunteering their time to work with those in their own communities who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Jenesse Center, based in Los Angeles, will also receive a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales. The Center, founded in 1980, is a non-profit organization that provides culturally sensitive comprehensive, centralized base of support and services. Their goal is to empower and equip women and men, address the needs of the children and strengthen families for the next generation.
