Brown to headline ‘Power Bash’ in August
HONOLULU PULSE STAFF / email@example.com
Embattled R&B singer Chris Brown will headline the first annual “Power Bash” on Aug. 23 at the Waikiki Shell, according to an announcement made by radio station Power 104.3 and promoters ShowOff HI and Takstar on Thursday, July 18.
Brown, 24, was born in Virginia and released his self-titled debut album in 2005 under Jive Records, following it up with “Exclusive” in 2007 and “Graffiti” in 2009. The release of his third album was overshadowed, however, by Brown’s legal troubles in relation to a domestic violence case involving his then-girlfriend, pop star Rihanna. He was sentenced to five years of probation plus community service after pleading guilty to felony assault.
While Brown continues to release music, putting out “F.A.M.E.” in 2011 and “Fortune” in 2012, he also keeps getting into trouble with the law. Last week, his probation was revoked after Brown was involved in an alleged hit-and-run accident. He was not, however, ordered back to jail and remains a free man.
Brown will be joined on stage at the Shell by Honey Cocaine and Glasses Malone; tickets for “Power Bash” go on sale Tuesday, July 23, at all Ticketmaster outlets and Walmart stores and online at Ticketmaster.com. Prices have not been announced.
