Celebrating nearly 12 years in the music business and almost as many accounts of assaulting women, multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning R&B performer Chris Brown is coming to DTE Energy Theatre on Wednesday, July 25.

Best known for ... shit ... we can't even name a single Chris Brown song off the top of our heads. What we can do, however, is provide a list of artists slated to visit metro Detroit that same week and remind y'all that Brown received five years of community service and probation for the vicious physical assault against Rihanna in 2009.

In February, protestors marched in opposition of R. Kelly's performance at Little Caesars Arena. Kelly, who stood trail for child pornography charges and is alleged to have perpetrated sexual assault, continues to tour around the country, with stops in Detroit generally included in his tour schedule.

Brown's "Heartbreak On A Full Moon Tour" will infect 27 cities. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 30 at 10 a.m. here. Or check out this list of organizations working to fight against domestic violence and donate through their respective sites.

Clearly, there's work to do so listen to this completely Chris Brown-free Rihanna jam instead.
