Chris Brown, Kelly Rowland Kick Off ‘F.A.M.E.’ Tour in Toronto

Chris Brown

“Toronto! Welcome to the motherfu**in’ F.A.M.E. tour,” announced Chris Brown on the first date of his “F.A.M.E.” tour at Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, his first Canadian show in six years. Following opening sets from Tyga, T-Pain, and Kelly Rowland (who thrilled with her Destiny’s Child hits and solo material), the 22-year-old entertainer kicked things off with “Say It With Me” to a sold-out audience of screaming fans.

The 90-minute gig included an elaborate, multi-level stage, light spectacular, numerous wardrobe changes, and killer moves courtesy of Breezy.

A glowing Chris danced in the dark to the Benny Benassi-produced “Beautiful People,” got freaky with a female fan during the racy “Wet the Bed,” and showed off his fancy footwork with his debut single “Run It!”

The electrifying concert received praise from critics, including the Toronto Sun, who called Chris the “whole package in terms of dancing, performing, and general showmanship.”

The comeback king was thrilled to be back on the road after three years. “This shit cray!!! Omg!! Torontooooooo!!!!!” he exclaimed following a triumphant opening night.

    All the reports on chris browns vocals were very positive so kill that noise. We all have been watching chris sing since he was 16 years old so why are people acting brand new.

    isabella! Reply:

    @100% true, no more like dance like he used to and actually sing the dam song. if i wanted to watch somebody just dance to music i would turn on ABDC, if i am watching chris i want to hear him sing, the lip singing is alright if he does it for part of the song but for the whole thing i think is disappointing.

    [Reply]

    ZANIA Reply:

    @isabella!, Here is some of the report from the Toronto Suns.
    However, the 22-year-old musician made a rebound of sorts with his latest album F.A.M.E. which sees him tapping into dance music with better than expected results.

    (And with the whole package in terms of dancing, performing and general showmanship,) he has plenty of time to turn the page as was the case on the North American opening date Monday night at Toronto’s
    The concert I heard was amazing, no negative comments from the concerts, he blew everyone away.

    Haters Stay Pressed!! Reply:

    @Mario Valentine, What the hell are you talking about?!?! People who were at the show were tweeting and they said he WAS singing live! He sung live to ‘All Back’ and they said he sounded great! His reviews for the shows are great as well.

    How the hell are you gonna say he was lip synching when there is NO video of his performance just pictures!

  31. Why oh why

    If you didn’t attend his concert or plan on attending, why are you commenting about his concert? If you don’t care for him as an artist, why are you commenting any topic discussing his music? Your opinion is moot to the topic at hand.

    [Reply]

    rnb Reply:

    @Why oh why, because chris brown is admirated by everybody
    he dances like nobody
    and his shows are the more impressive
    plus, he does real RNB

    so even if you’re an hater, you watch the king to take lessons and understand the meaning of the word “entairtainment” in our era

    [Reply]

    isabella! Reply:

    @rnb, stop, stop, stop………..this bitch honestly thinks that chris brown is the king!!! the title of king is michael jackson, and chris has not come anywhere near michael jackson status, i mean he has only been out for like 6 years, maybe in another 5 years he can be considered the next king but definitely not now, and especially when his album has only sold around 1.5 million world wide in over half a year. over 700,000 in the US. once he gets those sales to atleast 3 million an album then talk.

    100% true Reply:

    @isabella!, Ok Isabella, we understand that he isn’t the King yet, but at least right now,he is very well on track. MJ had over 40 year of development and experience in singing, dancing and entertainment but Chris only has 6 years minus the current 2-3 years of Rihanna drama. We know that there is no one currently in the music scene thats as talented as Chris Brown or as versatile as he is so he is the next King in the making.

    @isabella!, Why are you so a damn hater, she is a big fan of him, she can say what ever she wants, just like you damn haters say what ever the hell yall want! Chris has accomplished alot in his life, and considering all that has been going on in his life, the brother has done well for himself! You don’t like what his fans are posting about him, stop looking him up, cause the only reason you are doing is just to hate!

    To all u retards saying he is overrated, GO SUCK IT!! U haters keep throwing shade but yet number one ya’ll choose to click on a chris brown story and comment on it!! By the end of the day Chris is still getting his money and doing it big while ur broke asses still wanna hate thinking that it is gonna have any affect on him!! But i will say Chris u not gonna be able to do those moves at 40, 50 years old so why don’t u do some more singing honey?

  40. 100% true

    If you always find time to check for Chris Brown on line, then you are either a fan or you are looking for the best entertainment available.

    Instead of acting like school kids and bickering! Appreciate a young black kid doing his thing while over 1,000,000 kids are struggling with unemployment all over the world.

    While kids his age are involved in gun crimes, armed robbery etc, A lot of Kids his age are at home living off their mamas while others have kids all over the place.

    The Tax Chris Brown pays, pays for alot of American infrastructure & basic amenities. The tax he pay, could pay a lot of his age mate salaries or wages in Burger King or retail stores.

    Thanks to people like him, young kids can be challenged to do something with their lives and just not end up in Jail. Young people can understand that failing once don’t make you a failure.

    That hate is only an indication that you are doing something right. That you can rise above hate & touch the sky even when the entire world don’t think so. That nothing can hold you back except yourself

    No one asked you to listen to his music or like him, all we are saying is just GO AWAY! Since you have no brains to reason. I will forever support any kid that has a job and does great at it.
