    A portion of the proceeds from the tour will be donated to Best Buddies International, according to Jive's press release.

    "While on tour, Chris plans to visit with Best Buddies participants, as well as encourage his fans to consider volunteering their time to work with those in their own communities who have intellectual and developmental disabilities," the release stated.

    The tour comes after Brown's return to the stage on October 27, where he will headline Power 105.1's Powerhouse '09 concert at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
