Chris Brown will not perform at the forthcoming Michael Jackson tribute show in Vienna, his representative has said.
The singer’s name was included in the list of artists who would pay tribute to the King of Pop at the former imperial Schoenbrunn Palace on September 26. However, a representative for Brown, who is presently on probation for assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna in February, denied the story.
"Chris is not confirmed to perform or participate in any capacity for this show," Contactmusic quoted the representative as saying. Jackson’s brother Jermaine revealed Brown, Mary J Blige, Natalie Cole and Sister Sledge would be among dozens of musicians who will perform the late star’s greatest hits on a crown-shaped stage.
As many as 65,000 fans are expected to attend the gig that will be broadcast live to one billion fans around the globe.
