After Chris Brown pulled out of a Canadian concert festival organizers say they are now forced to cancel the entire four-day event. Brown was scheduled to headline the Energy/Summer Rush Canadian concert series but canceled, citing personal and health reasons. The news comes after some sponsors pulled out of the concert in Nova Scotia, after Brown was named as a performer. Brown is currently on probation in California for assaulting former girlfriend and fellow singer Rihanna in 2009. Neither the promoter nor Brown's publicist elaborated on the issues behind the cancellation. But Brown's rep did confirm the Grammy winner suffered a non-epileptic seizure on August 9 in Los Angeles. Promoters say the concert series will be rescheduled for 2014.
