New Edition will be one man short for their forthcoming reunion tour.
The R&B group’s resident bad boy Bobby Brown has pulled out of the 28-city gig (which began on June 26) due to health reasons. Brown reportedly couldn’t keep up with his bandmates at their show in Mississippi on July 2, which reportedly left him out of breath and caused him to exit the stage.
Brown’s team told TMZ the singer had an “intrusive medical procedure” which made performing unbearable.
He added, “I really wanted to be with my brothers, but presently I am unable to give the fans what they typically expect from New Edition.”
The remaining members wish him a “speedy recovery” and will continue to work on the tour.
