Chris Brown LITERALLY Shuts Down Rockefeller Center For "Today Show" Summer Concert Series!

A record breaking 18,000 Chris Brown fans shut down Rockefeller Center this morning as Breezy stormed the stage for the "Today Show" Summer Concert Series.

 

In case you missed it, we've got videos of his hot performances inside...

 

With fans camping out since Wednesday night, and over 18,000 busting at the seams this morning, The New York City Police Department closed off 48th and 49th street to vehicular traffic for the first tie in years.  Breezy brings 'em out indeed.

He tweeted last night: "So excited to give my fans a free show tomorrow morning. Gonna be fun!!!!!...Thx to all my fans who are outside the hotel right now! Love y'all and I appreciate the plaque." 

And what he said about his fans just minutes ago: "love teambreezy so much.. Wish the concert was longer today! Thx you Today Show for your everything Love ya!...18 to 20 thousand people showed up at 7 this morning! That's crazy!! Biggest crowd the today show ever had!...I love my fans!!!! It is really truly an honor and a blessing to create music and evoke emotion for positivity. Can't live without my fans."

 

Chris hit the stage in a black suit, pink bowtie, gold tufted metal gloves, and a sparkling gold vest.  He opened up with "Forever," then "She Ain't You," "Yeah 3x," then closed it out with a medley and the Dougie. And he looked like he had the time of his life.  Here's videos (we will update with more as they become available):

 

"Yeah 3x":

"Forever":

"She Aint You":

There was no interview done with the "Today Show" co-hosts.  And that may have been for the best. But here's video of the mob of fans:


Great performance Chris!  More pics:

I love Chris Brown even more

I love Chris Brown even more now than I did before. We need to stop scape-goating our people. If Charlie Sheen can behave the way he has and he gets nothing but sympathy then, I can show Chris some love after the way the media treated him.

Rihanna and Alicia Keys have

Rihanna and Alicia Keys have done the concert for The Today Show, Rihanna did her's in May. Remember the fan grabbing her, Alicia Keys sat on stage a couple of weeks ago playing the piano. so to the person that named the white guy and said no heavy hitters has been on there was lying, get your facts straight. Only three previous acts had people lined up and sleeping overnight according to the Today Show, Bruce Springsteen "07, Coldplay "08" Lady GaGa "10" and now Chris Brown! Say what you want about him but, Look At Him Now... He's getting paper!!

Sidenote: Anyone saw the

Sidenote: Anyone saw the Baseball All-star game this past weekend? Did y'all see Matt Kemp? Dude almost got MVP! There's a cautionary tale to be told, and a moral to THAT story: there's something about Rihanna..(TOXICITY)..!! First Chris Brown, then Matt Kemp. Rihanna is racking-up quite a record of drama/bad-luck-funk, isn't she? Let Matt Kemp/Chris Brown(as examples) go out "as warnings" to A-L-L those in the industry/game: DON'T do it! "..Play at YOUR own risk!" Hmm... I wonder, if we sat CBreezy, Matt Kemp, Dave LaChapelle (Rihanna STOLE his Intellectual property), Cindy Percival (Rihanna's one-time friend/personal trainer. Rihanna stole $30,000 worth-of-services from her), and Philip Paulus (Rihanna ALSO STOLE his intellectual property) around a table, what would they say? What would be the topic of discussion? (Meh.. If only if I had a 'magic wand') X,Y,"and Z"

So "Lost In Paradise" becomes..."Paradise Lost"(..?!) ..And Rihanna saw right through you: showed you her labia, she did, and bit of THAT fruit, did you! And what was YOUR nightmare? CBreezy thrilling that 18-20K audience? It could have been far-worse, you could have died in your sleep - amidst that dream. You're such a tragic figure, aren't you...'lost'? You're weak, shallow and easily led. You're always the unwitting "useful idiot: busy, noisy and unkempt".. X,Y,"and Z"

And this would explain why

And this would explain why Chris is only GOLD not Plat. This also explain why Chris is still not accepted for his POOR behavior. Only delusional GHETTO people accept Chris Brown. Chris is not talented. He was not even SINGING. All Chris Brown is....is a VIOLENT Backup dancer. He can't sing and his personality is INSANE. And the only reason people showed up is because NBC is located in TOURIST Central. And it's SUMMER TIME. And it was FREE. People who have brains don't care about Chris! He is a violent Woman Beater!

You can call him whatever it still wont change the fact that BLACK, WHITE, ASIAN, LATINO, etc all gathered together to see Chris Brown give a free 4 song concert at the RF. PLAZA on the Today Show! LOL so the 7,000 ppl who LITERALLY SLEPT OUT FOR 2 DAYS were they because the NBC studio is on the "tourist list"....LOL! Well damn why didn't they do the same for RIHANNA who performed on the Today Show a few weeks ago? Why didn't 18,000 to 20,000 <--- THE LARGEST IN TODAY SHOW WELL ACTUALLY MORNING SHOW HISTORY -- > come out for her? LMAO YOU POOR DELUSIONAL RIHTARD STAN! I KNOW IT HURTS....LOL!

FURIOUS.. F-U-R-I-O-U-S...!!! I've been waiting for you, Furious. But Furious, 'F.A.M.E' is WELL-past 600K in sales - with a FRACTION of the promotion/marketing that Def Jam has put into 'LOUD'! (Sigh..) "Only delusional GHETTO people accept Chris Brown" ..doesn't really explain the 3.0 Neilsen he got for his Feb 12th SNL appearance. In case you didn't know, SNL isn't exactly.."GHETTO". ..ALSO doesn't explain the 18-Million (Another record) who watched him on DWTS (Not exactly "Pork And Beans" over in those neck of the woods). Furious, 'F.A.M.E' went #1 on Billboard's Top-100 chart - A MAINSTREAM CHART. He also topped BB's R&B/Hip Hop; which, BTW, is the ONLY chart that Rihanna's had a #1 CD! When Rihanna isn't smashing bottles upside her little-brother's head, thieving (and getting sued for it), she's a violent, instigating troublemaker: tmz(dotcom)/2009/03/09/brown-wants-misdemeanor-plea-no-jail-time/ X,Y,"and Z"

@Furious Styles, You have

@Furious Styles, You have been riding Chris Brown dick for a while. I just don't understand it. The young man has been putting his life together and you have been since bashing him. Lets go, Rihanna has been abusing people for a long time. Complex Mag 2007 I didn't have argument with my brother I bashed the older one in the head with a glass bottle. Even the interviewer she said remind me never to piss you off. Diane Swayer interview in 2009. I use to throw glass bottle at my parent to stop them from arguing and I hit my father when him and my mom were fighting. In 2008 Wittnesses at the Richmond VA Aiport wittness Rihanna stricking Chris Brown in the face. Many people called it in to the radio stations and it was on the video camera at the airport. Rihanna in 2010 was thrown out of her native Barbados for smoking weed and thrashing a upscale hotel. Where she was banned from being a guest. Her song S&M where Perez was a dog that was disguesting, whip and chains excited me. Please you are a damn hypocrite. You glorified Rihanna and she has more abuse towards people then Chris and Rihanna has been known to be a alcoholic. Complex mag 2007. I have been drinking since 12 I never get drunk I know how to not get drunk. Please a High School dropout and a whore. Shut f up and get a real life instead of stalking Chris Brown. Can't stand your stuip ass. Investigate that and write about.

You know what I don't

You know what I don't understand? It's people like YOU. You sat down to BASH Rihanna who was the VICTIM of an Abusive and crazy male. Chris has learned nothing. It's so interesting how some blacks are so quick to praise Brown for his dancing and want to forget his issues which there are PLENTY. Chris has the FELONY not Rihanna. Chris beats on WOMEN. Chris threw the Chair. Chris has twitter fights because he can't fight with men the way he fights with women. Chris is the person who is uneducated and violent but you want me to believe that Rihanna is the issue. If anything Rihanna is too nice. She is the one that forgave Chris and she is the one who think she can save him. You confuse characters or roles people play with reality. Rihahnna's s&m song which by the way she did not write is not about SEX dummy. But I don't have the time to teach you about the meaning of the song because you don't get more important issues like Domestic VIOLENCE. Rihanna has nothing to do with how Chris Brown was raised. Or the fact he has issue with anger and violence. Sorry but I'm talking about an issue and a person with problems named Chris Brown. When you can understand Domestic Violence get back to me becauase Rihanna did nothing to deserve the level of violence Chris used against her....NOTHING!

when you see her ask her about that victim thing, and honestly this is not about her and I should not have stoop to ur level, but you trying to do damage controll on CHRIS all the time , wont give him credit where credit is due, if you dont like him u dont have to say bad things about him, Barbados tourist board are using her to bring tourist to Barbados and the show is well sold even if the tourist dont come...leave Chris alone..No one deserves to be hit woman or man..let me apologize for saying mean things about her, but you have to stop trying to bring down Chris evertime he is picking his self up.

@furious styles, You need more help than you claim Chris does. You been on Chris post for 3 yrs talking about the incident, if I was Chris I would get a retraining order against you, because you have so much hate for this man, its scary. You are probably the type of person who has everything Rihanna in your room and dreams about her, like a psychopath, very scary person. Someone needs to seek you out and institutionalized you.

STFD! People like you trip me

STFD! People like you trip me out throwing stones. WE (as in me and YOU) don't know what happened for her to get busted upside her head but at least credit the fact that he didn't out whatever it was which there have been many rumors of. Go take that anger to the gym or to the war and Iraq where it might actually be useful, but leave it off of websites that try to perpetuate some level of positivity.

It's apparent that his record

It's apparent that his record sales prove he is still valid in the industry. Believe me if he didn't have any talent. He would have been gone several years ago. The business can make you and take you out. I'm all for him reviving his career. Do it boy....

Chris did amazing. He looked

Chris did amazing. He looked amazing. And it was obvious he had a great time. The sad thing is, as much as you wish to take his joy from him and focus on shit that's relatively aging...you can't. Because he's been dominating charts, he's been selling out arenas, and most of all he's happy. lol You can't take that from him. That's a man with a shield of God and a peace of mind. Continue to try and make yourself look even more foolish. He messed up, he paid for it, he's moved on...let him have it. The arguments are becoming redundant and the negative people are running out of shit to say. Hang it up and give it rest. You're mad, because no matter the circumstances it's proven that Chris Brown is one of the--if not the best--male entertainers at the moment. Snakes come out the grass, rain or shine, so I suppose you're only doing your job by being anonymous, bitter, sad, pitiful, fearful, and obviously misguided. I'm so proud of him. <3

Why do you have to bash

Why do you have to bash Rihanna to show love to Chris? Yes he beat her, yes he blacked both of her eyes, yes he's a woman beater and has anger issues. These are facts that Chris has accepted and dealt with. Rihanna's talent or lack of has nothing to do with what he did. He has moved on and accepted it and his "fans" should move on and accept the incident as well. To pull someone up you dont need drag someone down. Facts are the facts Congrats to Chris on a great show God bless!!
