Bobby Brown wasn’t 100% expected return to his current New Edition tour until Saturday evening after Whitney Houston‘s funeral. But he made a surprise appearance Thursday night for Upper Marlboro, Maryland concert goers. Deets inside…
The show must go on….and Bobby’s back at it already. Last night (Thursday), Bobby surprised Maryland fans by returning to the stage for the New Edition tour stop.
He showed up at the Show Place Arena 20 minutes into the set and thanked the crowd for their prayers. And also had them throw up their hands for “his love Whitney.”
We’ve learned that two of his sons and 1 daughter (not Bobbi Kris) were looking on from the side of the stage.
Bobby told the crowd, “Life is life and you have to move on. I love [Whitney] like I love God.”
As for his demeanor? He was his usual self much to the delight of the crowd. He introduced himself as “Bad ass Bobby Brown” and came out hype as ever. But was still emotional at times.
Bobby left the New Edition tour last Sunday night to travel to L.A. to mourn the loss of his ex-wife and to be with his 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina. He has reportedly received an official invite to Saturday’s private funeral in New Jersey, despite reports that Whitney’s family did not want him there.
He will reportedly attend the services, then travel directly afterwards to Connecticut to rejoin his groupmates for another concert.
