The idea for this serial woman beater is to give a bunch of tickets away to schools and shelters to try and make it look like someone is interested in spending hundreds of dollars on tickets to his concert tour.
The shelters want no part of him.
Commentary: Chris Brown headlining Summer Jam is a stain on Denver
With so much progress made toward sexual and gender equity — both legal and cultural — since the dawn of the #MeToo movement in late 2017, I was disappointed this week to see promoter Live Nation touting convicted domestic-violence felon Chris Brown as the headliner for KS 107.5’s annual Summer Jam concert.
Perhaps disappointed isn’t the right word. Enraged? Smacking my forehead like a loose shutter in a hurricane? Sad for all the women I know or have ever met? Those might be better.
The Aug. 25 concert at the Pepsi Center is yet another date on Brown’s Indigoat Tour, which was rolled out nationally this week to promote his new album. The parties involved needed to coordinate before revealing the late-summer event, and most of them seemingly decided the bad publicity would be worth the profit. They include Denver radio station KS 107.5, which is owned by Entercom Communications, the Denver office of national promoter Live Nation, the Pepsi Center (owned by Kroenke Sports & Entertainment) and Brown’s record label, RCA.- Source
