Chris Brown took to the stage at his first UK festival in 12 years on Friday after previously being refused entry to the country in 2010.
The singer, 33, was announced as one of the headliners at Wireless festival last month and he performed in London this week at Crystal Palace Park.
It comes more than 10 years after he was reportedly banned from Great Britain in 2010 following his alleged assault of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

The pop star's Wireless show comes more than a decade on from when he allegedly assaulted his then-girlfriend, fellow pop star Rihanna, at a Grammys party in 2009.
It was previously reported that the rapper's visa for entry to the UK was denied due to him committing a serious criminal offence and being ordered to carry out community service.
A Home Office spokesperson wrote on social media at the time: 'We reserve the right to refuse entry to the UK to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offence. Public safety is one of our primary concerns.'

Chris was announced in the line-up for Wireless earlier this year, with the star being unable to travel and perform at the festival without a lift of the ban.

It comes after Chris appeared to have congratulated Rihanna on giving birth in May.
Umbrella singer Rihanna - who had a tumultuous relationship with Chris between 2007 and 2009 - welcomed her first child with A$AP Rocky in May and her ex-boyfriend has seemingly sent his well wishes just hours after the news broke.
He wrote on Instagram: 'Congratulations!' and emblazoned the Stories post with emojis of a pregnant woman, a heart, and a pair of hands folded in prayer.

The Diamonds hitmaker met Chris way back in 2005 when they were just entering the music industry before going on to develop a relationship which came to an abrupt halt in 2009 when an argument on the way to the Grammy Awards led to Rihanna reportedly becoming a victim of physical violence at the hands of Chris.
A reunion between the pair lasted between 2012 and 2013 before Rihanna dated rapper Drake until 2016 and had a three-year relationship with businessman Hassan Jameel before getting together with rapper ASAP Rocky in 2021 and announced that she was expecting his baby in January 2022.
A source told TMZ in May: 'Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are officially parents ... welcoming a baby boy to the world.'
While there was no news of the name of the baby, the star is said to have given birth in Los Angeles.

Chris Buescher Continues To Prove Brad Keselowski Right
Getty Chris Buescher continues to turn in strong performances.
RFK Racing’s Brad Keselowski turned heads early in the 2022 Cup Series season with some strong comments about teammate Chris Buescher. The August 14 trip to Richmond Raceway only further proves that this praise was justified.
Buescher struggled during practice and qualifying on August 13, which led to him starting 18th overall in the field. He proceeded to make moves at the short track that put him in a position to potentially cause some chaos. He racked up seven points in Stage 2 and then finished third overall after battling winner Kevin Harvick for the lead late.
Left it all out on the track.

This third-place finish at Richmond Raceway was Buescher’s second top-five of the season. It was also the best finish for RFK Racing at a non-superspeedway or road course since Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finished second overall at Bristol Motor Speedway in 2016, per Jayski’s Dustin Albino.

“Chris is an amazing race car driver,” Keselowski told PRN’s Garage Pass during the May trip to Dover Motor Speedway. “If we get him in the equipment he needs to run up front, he’ll win races. Chris Buescher and Ross Chastain are so similar. Just a matter of getting them in the right equipment.”

GettyChris Buescher has showcased an ability to rebound.
The Texas native has turned in some strong runs during his first season working with Keselowski. He has seven top-10 finishes, putting him one shy of his career-best from the 2021 and 2020 seasons. His two top-fives match his career-best numbers from three different seasons.
Buescher has shown speed and control during the 2022 season while fighting for strong finishes, but he has also showcased the ability to rebound from unexpected issues. This includes the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course when the No. 17 caught on fire. Buescher’s car was full of smoke, and he couldn’t see. He still recovered after falling two laps down and finished 10th overall.
“Honestly, for about three months now, I haven’t been able to wait to get to each and every race track,” Buescher told media members after his third-place finish at Richmond. “That’s where I feel like the company’s got to.
“I think that our results haven’t always shown it because we’ve had some freak deals. We’ve had… we’ve been making the highlight reel for all the wrong reasons. I’ve been upside down, on fire.”Buescher Has Circled the Next Cup Series Race
No flip, no fire… made the highlight reel for the right reason today! ????????

There are only two races remaining in the regular season, and Buescher is in a must-win situation. The only way that he can reach the playoffs is if he wins either at Watkins Glen International or Daytona International Speedway, two tracks with the potential for chaos.
The next race on the schedule, Watkins Glen, is one that Buescher has circled. He has run very well at road courses in the Next Gen era, headlined by a runner-up at Sonoma Raceway. He also scored a sixth-place finish at Road America and a 10th-place finish at IMS. Now he has another road course waiting for him.
Buescher hasn’t scored a top-10 finish at Watkins Glen in his previous six starts. He has been close with an 11th-place finish in 2017 and a 13th-place finish in 2019. His first start at the track for RFK Racing was a 17th-place finish.
