Chris Brown turns bad PR into positive PR by completing community service to a high standard, and Glee has become such a phenomenon that a UK tour has been announced, but will See Tickets and Ticketmaster be able to cope this time?

US singer Chris Brown has earned the praise of a judge in Los Angeles, and of the press in return, by consistently completing his community service work.

The 21 year old was given five years of probation last August and six months of community labour after pleading guilty to assaulting pop star Rihanna.

Brown, recently seen in the film Takers alongside Matt Dillon, Paul Walker and Hayden Christensen has been cleaning roads and removing graffiti in his home state of Virginia.

On Thursday he came in front of the judge who said “Out of thousands of probationers, no one has done a better or more consistent job than you have.”

This comes as much needed PR at a time when Brown has almost completed the domestic violence counselling he was required to undertake and could soon be a free man.

Brown was arrested in February 2009 after attacking Rihanna, his then-girlfriend, on the eve of the Grammy Awards.

The singer, whose hits include Run It! and Kiss Kiss, later said he was ashamed of his actions and seems to have proven that to be the case.

Other massive news today is that the American TV series Glee, created by Ryan Murphy for Fox, has announced a live concert tour of the UK which will take place next summer.

The cast will perform two dates at London’s O2 Arena on 25th and 26th June and at Manchester’s MEN Arena on 22nd June, with performances from stars such as Lea Michele and Cory Monteith.

Glee has become such a phenomenon that all the shows stars, including Matthew Morrison, are now famous throughout the world and they know that this tour will be a guaranteed hit. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday 26th November and will cost between £45 and £55.

The news was revealed on Fearne Cotton’s Radio 1 show.

The show will feature songs from the Emmy award-winning programme including Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ Empire State of Mind, Britney Spears’ Toxic, Kelly Clarkson’s My Life Would Suck Without You and, of course, Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’.

However, in my opinion this is not enough dates, because there are lots of Glee fans and, knowing how popular the Take That concert was, I think MANY MANY fans will be disappointed. I am sure See Tickets and Ticketmaster will crash again.
