“Mr. Brown and the promoters both remain positive that a tour will take place in the near future,” said the statement issued by Brown’s promoters.

Australian Immigration Minister Peter Dutton warned in late September he would deny entry to Brown for his history of gender-based violence.

The American singer was sentenced in 2009 by a U.S. court to six months of community work and 5 years of surveillance for assaulting and making death threats to singer Rihanna, his partner then, who published a picture of herself on social networks that showed bruises on her face.

It is unknown if the artist had made a formal request to the Australian authorities for an entry permit.

Brown said on his Twitter account he would like to be able to perform in Australia and carry out a campaign against gender violence in the country.

The artist is also technically prohibited from entering New Zealand for his criminal background and therefore would need a “special permission” to travel to the country, reported New Zealand news website Stuff.
