Chris Brown to headline tour in Halifax to Mayors disapproval
Chris Brown, who is set to headline the Energy Rush summer music festival in Halifax next month is having some trouble keeping sponsors on board.
There was public outcry in response to the announcement of Chris Brown being on the bill and the other three performers walked as well.
Halifax Mayor Mike Savage weighed in. “I’m not a big fan of his behavior in the past, obviously,” he said. “This is an arrangement that’s been made contractually between the venue, the radio station, the promoter and Chris Brown. I wish I’d had some input in it beforehand. I think I would have given a fairly strong opinion, but the fact is he’s been booked and there are now legal obligations. I don’t like it and I hope people vote with their wallet.”
