Chris Brown is creating quite a stir in Hong Kong after finally landing there following his three-day detention in the Philippines.
He played a packed gig on Saturday night and was mobbed by fans as he finally made it to the former British territory that is now part of China.
Finally! After a three-day delay caused by Philippines authorities detaining him in Manila, Chris Brown arrived Saturday in Hong Kong and was surrounded by burly bodyguards as he was escorted to his Dragon-i gig
Mobbed: The rapper, 26, was swarmed by fans and the media as he prepared to play his first concert in Hong Kong
The Dragon-i bar and restaurant is one of the top nightspots in Hong Kong and bills itself as an entertainment destination for ‘the global glitterati.’
The R&B artist, sporting a white t-shirt and baseball cap, was seen surrounded by burly bodyguards dressed all in black as he showed up for the gig and posed for photos on the red carpet set up outside the venue.
He was greeted by Gilbert Yeung Kei-lung, the son of Hong Kong entertainment tycoon Albert Yeung Sau-shing, as excited members of the media and fans jostled to catch a glimpse of the 26-year-old rapper.
Glad to be free: Brown maintained on social media that he had no idea why he wasn’t being allowed to leave the Philippines after a playing a concert there on Tuesday
Brown had performed at a packed concert in Manila on Tuesday but was barred from leaving the country after a fraud complaint was brought against him and his promoter over a cancelled concert last New Year’s Eve.
After three days of delay, and a few comical videos of Chris getting cabin fever in his hotel room, the rapper was finally allowed to leave Manila.
He and his posse chartered a private jet on Friday and made for Hong Kong.
Next up for the Loyal singer is a concert Monday night in Tel Aviv, Israel, followed by a gig in Cyprus on Tuesday before he heads back to the U.S..The next American leg of his One Hell Of A Nite tour kicks off in Kansas City, Missouri, on August 12.
