Chris Brown might soon get barred from Australia — but he should have plenty of chances to play in Las Vegas.
The "Forever" crooner signed on to perform at least six shows at Vegas hot spot Drai as part of a trial run for a potential long-term residency, reports TMZ.
The singer, 26, will reportedly earn $50,000 per show. He is set to rotate performances with R&B artist Trey Songz — and possibly several other artists — as part of the deal, according to the celebrity gossip site.
Brown becomes the latest high-profile performer to sign up for an extended Las Vegas tour, joining Britney Spears, Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez. The "Run It" singer will earn far less than those ladies starting out, however, as each is believed to be raking in more than $300,000 per show.
The Vegas contract comes just days after news broke that leading Australian officials were looking to bar Brown from performing there in December due to his assault of singer Rihanna in 2009.
"People need to understand if you are going to commit domestic violence and then you want to travel around the world, there are going to be countries that say to you, 'You cannot come in because you are not of the character we expect in Australia,'" said Australian Minister for Women Michaela Cash, via ABC News.
On Sunday, Brown, who pleaded guilty to beating up Rihanna in 2009, received a formal warning from Australian authorities that they are considering refusing his application for a visa.
The singer now has 28 days to make his case as to why he should get a visa.
This isn't the first time Brown's criminal background has gotten in the way of his travel. In 2010, the United Kingdom banned him from performing there, and in February, he was blocked from going to Canada, both times due to his history of incidents.
