No plans 'at this time' for Chris Brown and Usher tour
After R&B stars Chris Brown and Usher made headlines a few weeks ago by appearing together on stage during Usher's performance in Jamaica, many have questioned whether or not the duo are planning to take their act on tour.
Although producer Bryan-Michael Cox tempted fans by dropping "some exclusive [expletive]" that Brown and Usher were going to tour, he later tweeted that he didn’t know that information for sure. ("It would be dope, tho[ugh]," Cox added.)
Brown also fueled the speculation by tweeting, "What would you guys say if me and Usher went on tour?"
But according to Usher’s camp, this is all just talk - for now, at least. "There are no plans at this time for Usher and Chris Brown to tour together,” reps for the 31-year-old singer said. Brown's reps said ditto with the statement: "There is no confirmed Chris Brown and Usher tour at this time."
Perhaps they're just waiting to see how badly fans want it. Brown tweeted Wednesday, "Would you pay to see an Usher and Chris Brown concert/tour," followed by, "RT #CBUSHERTOUR if u want it to happen." Lo and behold, at the time of this posting, #cbushertour was a trending topic.
What do you think - yay or nay to the thought of a C. Breezy/Usher tour?

Hi there, You've performed an excellent job. I will certainly digg it and in my view recommend to my friends. I'm confident they'll be benefited from this web site.
The people that say they would never pay to see chris because they won't support an offender are the same people who will be tuning into 2 and a half men this fall...
Its time people leave chris alone and let him start over. The tour would be amazing. His talent is what matters, not his personal life.
Concert would be awesome. Would def go, front row center stage. Have had the opportunity to see both performers on seperate occassions. To see them perform on the same platform. Incredible!!!!!. A concert not to be missed. Throw in a female opening act and that would complete the deal.
i dont understand haters....first its he was in the illuminati and no one shouldlisten to him....now its because he hit rihannas tempermental self.....she caused on herself....she provocked him.....guys leave him alone .....
Can't stand Chris Brown...the only reason he is hangin' with Usher is he thinks it will help his image. He just sucks...simple as that!!
I wouldn't walk across the street to see chris brown. I do like Usher, but my opinion of him would drop if he were to tour with cb.
First and foremost, CB has paid his dues already, 10 times over. Most importantly, he has taken responsibility and accountability for his mistakes. Being in therapy has and will help him a lot. The crucial fact underlying CB's upbringing is that he witnessed the abuse of his mother, and somehow, became a product of that enviroment. I am so glad he has gotten the help he needed, for WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES. EVERYBODY. NO ONE IS PERFECT. In my opinion, he took the high road because he could have told the media exactly what happened, yet he didnot tarnish Rihanna image or say anything negative about her whatsoever. That is a man. In addition, the scrunity that he underwent would have broken the average person, and he went through HELL, BUT YET, HE IS STILL STANDING. I would love to see them tour together, as they are 2 of the most talented entertainers in the industry. CB made a mistake almost 2 years ago. 2 years ago!!. You can't punish this multi-talented man forever. Let him learn from his mistake, and move on with his life, just as you would want someone to do had you made a major mistake in your life. People, we live and we learn. That is what life is all about. Growth. I can almost guarantee you that Chris Brown has learned from his mistake, and will never put his hands on a woman again. That equates to (1) making a mistake, (2) taking responsibility for your mistake, and (3) learning from your mistake. What more can you ask for?.
It is so nice to see 2 handsome,talented men without a massive amount of tattoos covering their faces.This will be a successful pairing –true fans will be there, Not against tattoos but 50cent is having his laser removed..be yourself without so much ink.
I don,t know what Jay Z did I just Usher fan alot ladies grow up with Usher singer love song to them not people talked about cb will out do Usher
I grew up with Usher as well. I remember his debut song of "Call Me a Mack" so I go way back with Usher. Usher has been in the industry long enough to know many of the artists we like are not saints. I think tons of people will be there for the concert.
For info on Jay-Z's admission to stabbing >> http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/1606719.stm
I would love this I hope it happens
I think Chris Brown has more than paid his dues for the mistakes he's made in the past. I'm glad that he took responsibility as an adult and did not shake off blame or let the public scrutiny he experienced break him irreparably. Which is more than one can say for the majority of celebrities and athletes making the same mistakes repeatedly and continuously being excused. As far as Usher and Chris Brown on tour, I would LOVE to see both performers (and so would all three of my kids), seeing as though since Michael Jackson's death, they seem to be the only performers left who are capable of filling that void. I say definite YES to a Chris Brown/Usher tour. I can't wait to see these young men in action!
Please, Rihanna beat him with her stiletto shoes, punched and scratched him. Why do you think we never saw his mug shot pictures or any pictures following the arrest? He maned up and took full blame for the situation, while she out played the victim card, and set women back years in our case to not look like damsels in distress. Chris Brown posses pure talent and creativity, if you can't appreciate or acknowledge that, You really need to just keep his name out of your mouth. I would LOVE to see this tour. It would be along the lines of epic. Usher has been Chris' mentor since before Chris was even signed.
You cannot be serious. We didn't see any pics of him because he was not the victim and because he was in hiding embarrassed for what he did. And calling a tour with Usher and cb epic.....that's going just a bit too far.
That is where you are wrong 'me'. Is it hard for you to understand because he is not a female? The fact is they beat up each other. If you saw his mug shot, you would've seen the bruises, scratches, and blood on him too. He wasn't hiding, think of any and every other celebrity who get's arrested, within minutes their mugshot is out. The media chose to take a side, of course, they took the scorned womans. You seem to have chosen a side as well. They were both wrong, and Chris Brown has already payed a great amount for what he did. Point blank, the kid is talented. If we're able to give Eminem the number one spot on the billboard charts, after being a repeated abuser, I'm pretty sure you can forgive Chris. If you can't ignore him, and stop posting negative comments about a positive situation.
i would love it,please let it happen.
Yes! I would love to see them perform. Chris has went through alot with his mother's abuse & has lashed out He has paidthe price & learned from his own experience. Get off! I got ur Back. Frm DC
I am so glad to hear that Chris and Usher will tour together. We have been waiting for this to happen. This will not hurt Usher career, it will help his career. Way to go Chris and Usher can't wait!
Usher hooked up w/ Jay-Z, a former drug dealer and who stabbed a man while being famous, to do this Hot Toddy song. If Usher can collaborate w/ a "reformed" criminal like Jay-Z, why can't he do the same with Chris Brown.
Chris and Usher performed in Jamaica together and you can tell those two would light up a stage. I would pay for front seats to that show.
I agree with the person who mentioned all the actors and artists who have been self- or criminally-identified as DV abusers but there is very little fall out about their careers. SMH
I believe it hurt Usher image to tour with him the bet gave him chance ; the other award show will see it bad thing they wont him on show..
No it will not hurt Usher's career, so stop hating and get with the plan and that is USHER AND CHRIS WILL TOUR TOGETHER!
i would go
that would be an awespme concert and i would be front row
haters keep hating cause thats your job.. chris is always gonna love his fans make good music and be the best entertainer in the game because thats his job.....
AMEN to that... I enjoy Chris Brown and all he has to offer us fans. 🙂 I can't stand unforgiving ignorance along with the bitterness it brings out in true haters. Its a bad cancer eating them up alive.
I saw that trending topic on twitter and did not know what it was about. But hells yeah I'd go to their concert!! I love me some Usher and I love me some Chris Breezy too. I think Chris is a better dancer than Usher too.
Not sure where his tongue has been, so I'll pass on the kisses - but I could spend all day listening to him sing!
It's funny that when charlie sheen, emenin, sean pean, mel gibson names come up. No one says anything in these posts. Interesting!
I would love to see them in concert.
usher is the best n to see him wit chris brown d other best is lyke seeing two magical dancers i wish it happens.
People need to get over of what Chris did... He has apologize countless time, did his probation, when to his anger managment classes. Rihanna is living her life just fine, she's even singing on "how much she loves the way it hurts"... So, obviously she wasn't too scarred by the experience...
Chris Brown is a really talented singer and dancer, I think is time for society to give him another chance!
You've got to be kidding me. God forbid you were beaten and threatened to be killed.....Are you saying you really wouldn't be scarred by that experience? I'll give Chris Brown another chance in my next lifetime; that's the only time he would be a changed man. Batterers don't change.
@Kevin: I have to disagree. How can you say that he is incapable of change? As someone who has worked with therapists I'm asking nicely that you have some faith in the therapists and counselors out there whose very purpose is to help people in these types of situations make a change for the better! He was young when he committed this crime and is receiving counseling after his first offense, the likelihood of him repeating that act is next to nil if you add the fact that if he EVER is to get caught doing what he did again, his life will be over! If he was an older man, say 30-50 yrs, who has a history of abuse, the chances of change are much smaller. I have seen so many people with my own eyes, young and old, change their lives for the best after receiving counseling. It is a very rewarding experience for me.
@Kevin: So please, do not be so quick to give up on people, especially the young ones. They need support and encouragement on top of being help accountable for their actions. Rehabilitation is very possible! That is why I support Chris Brown, NOT HIS ACTIONS, but his growth, his maturing, his counseling and therapy. I know he can be a better person afterwards, and from what they Judge has been saying, he is heading in the right direction.
Thanks and Take Care.
Ignorant fools like you never change, either.
That would be a concert I'd definitely pay to see. I hope that both of their teams can see the desire for this tour and can make it happen. Could you imagine? OMG!!
Chris b and usher are the best dance and vocal artist in the world today after we lost the king of pop MJ so, chris b and ursha on a tour? that will be awson. Chris edache from Nigeria
that would be a hot concert
rich serously your so perfect i like when people get mad evertime chris does something good because haters cant stan it
This abuser does not deserve to be famous.
he is already famous you sound like the biggewst clown town move on clown and start calling charlie sheen emenim seann peann mel gibson tommie lee on them reapeted offender let star on them you are jealous of chris brown clown
I completely agree with you Rich. I feel sorry for Ms Linda who thinks repeated offenders have the right to be stars. Domestic violence should really be a felony charge; Chris Brown beat the **** out of Rihanna and threatened to kill her. So we should pay to see him perform? No thanks.
@Anonymous ... Linda did not say that repeat offenders have a right to be stars. She was just pointing out the hypocrisy of some people. First, Chris Brown is not a "repeat" offender. Secondly, I'm sure she was just saying if you are going to say Chris Brown does not deserve fame, then NEITHER do the people she listed who ARE in fact "repeat" offenders. That is all. If you don't want to see Chris Brown in concert, that is your God given right. Fact is, Chris Brown despite losing so much since last year still has his fame, his money and a very strong/large fan-base who are willing to see him in concert. Everyone has their opinions, does not make anyone better nor lesser than anyone else.
too good he already famous.... lol jump of cliff u cant take to see chris brown shine ...lmao i love it when haters get furious
This mouth-breather makes me sick as well. Anyone putting hands on woman should do time.
this guy is a joke.
Rich and the rest of you ignorant haters...Go blo.... Stop going to Chris Brown articles if you hate him so much you losers! LIVE AND LET LEARN JERKS.
I would love to see Chris Brown and Usher together, it would be refreshing to see true talent on vocal and dancing level. They both are handsome and very intertaining and it would be great and I know the world would love to see it also. Put R. Kelly on the program and I guarantee that it would be a sold out concert 3 times around. Trust me, Dare me, Get Rich.
