Chris Brown `pops' in to 1st Mariner

December 09, 2007|By Sean Patrick Norris | Sean Patrick Norris,Sun reporter

These days, comparisons to Michael Jackson are not automatically categorized as compliments.

But for hip-hop/R&B performer Chris Brown, those commenting on the resemblance to the Gloved One see an inventiveness, a cleverness of dance style that was last exhibited during the Thriller era. Publications including Newsweek and the Detroit Free Press have made the comparison that Brown himself courted, performing "Billie Jean" and other Jackson classics during September's MTV Video Music Awards.

Chris Brown 7 tonight. 1st Mariner Arena, 201 W. Baltimore St. $34-$98. 410-547-7328 or ticketmaster.com.
