Brown Leaves New Edition Tour

Bobby Brown has left the reunion tour with New Edition to focus on his health, the group announced shortly after video emerged showing him struggling to keep up with his tourmates’ dance moves.

A spokeswoman for the R&B group said members Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant wish the 45-year-old singer a speedy recovery.

No other details were provided; TMZ reports that Brown’s “people” say he had “an intrusive medical procedure” and is under the care of his doctor.

“At this time, Bobby needs to put his health first, and we wish him a speedy recovery,” said New Edition in a statement. “We are giving each end every show all we’ve got until his return – and will continue giving the fans 100 percent each night.”

Brown was seen struggling to keep up with fellow New Edition members during a dance routine before leaving the stage in a video posted online of the group’s July 2 show in Southaven, Miss.

The other new Edition members will continue for the remaining 16 shows of the All Six reunion tour.
