R&B heartthrob Chris Brown takes center stage in Oklahoma City Friday night for the second leg of his four city X Tour Live performances. The “Loyal” singer and Grammy Award winner will be joined by August Alsina and Sevyn Streeter when he rocks the Chesapeake Energy Arena where average ticket prices are clocking in at $202.66, with a get-in price of $101, according to Totally Tickets.
The four-city tour kicked off Wednesday night in Hidalgo, Texas and has later weekend stops scheduled for Southaven and Biloxi in Mississippi. As expected, Chris Brown tickets have been selling rapidly, no matter the venue.
The 26-year-old Brown comes to town with no shortage of material to perform for what figures to be a raucous and overflow crowd, just as it was in Texas. Since emerging on the scene just a decade ago, Brown has already counted 61 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, including a pair of No. 1s and 13 in the top 10.
Brown’s hit-list boasts such classic tracks as “I Can Transform Ya,” “Deuces,” “Shortie Like Mine,” “No Air,” and “Run It.” His latest album, X, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart with first-week sales of nearly 150,000 copies.
Even with all those up-tempo hits, Brown still finds the energy and stamina to work a crowd like few others dare to even imagine. His dance routines have been routinely compared to the magical likes of Michael Jackson and Usher.
All the touring probably comes as a welcome distraction for Brown, who recently split from longtime girlfriend Karrueche Tran with the entire public essentially looking on.
"I'm going to be honest and be a man about it and just take it one day at a time," he recently told radio host Ryan Seacrest of the breakup, rumored to be caused by him fathering a child with another woman. "I can't promise anything and I can't jump over the moon, but it takes time for all wounds . I take full responsibility for my actions and things that I've done in the past. I feel like it's just a time thing."
And in the meantime, Brown appears to be as focused on his music as ever. That should be more than enough to keep the crowds pumped come Friday night, particularly with the smooth crooning Alsina serving as his set-up man and setting the crowd off early with his own hits such as “Make It Home” and “I Luv This S**t.”
It should certainly be a live atmosphere.
