Original Rudeboys turn down Chris Brown support slot
Irish group The Original Rudeboys have turned town a potentially lucrative opportunity to support US hip hop star Chris Brown at his forthcoming concert in The O2.
Sean Walsh, ukulele player for the band, explained the band's decision by saying: "Even though it’s a huge opportunity to play in the O2 with a major hip hop star and a substantial fee was offered, we are completely against Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna. In addition, with our latest single 'Blue Eyes' being about domestic violence it goes against everything we are about as a band and supporting Chris Brown would send out the wrong message to our fans."
You will have a chance to see the Original Rudeboys when they play two shows (all ages matinee and over 18's evening performance) at The Academy in Dublin on December 22nd.
