MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Organizers say recording artist Chris Brown has canceled a New Year’s Eve concert in the Philippines at the last minute, reportedly because of a lost passport.
Brown tweeted that “Due to unfortunate circumstances I can’t bring in the new year with you…”
The organizers, Maligaya Development Corporation, said they were informed by Brown’s local representatives on Wednesday afternoon that he was still in Los Angeles.
“According to them, Chris Brown lost his passport the day before the scheduled event,” it said in a statement.
Brown was to perform at the 55,000-seat Philippine Arena along with other musical acts in the New Year’s Eve concert, which also featured a fireworks show.
