Following the postponement of his UK tour due to visa issues, R&B star Chris Brown's Irish shows have now been cancelled.

The singer was due to play the Marquee in Cork on 15 June and Dublin's Vicar Street on 16 and 17 June.

A statement by the promoter reads: "Chris looks forward to performing for his fans abroad in the near future and thanks them for their continued support."

Refunds are now available from point of purchase.
