Chris Brown is postponing his North American tour less than two weeks after a judge revoked the singer's probation for traveling to the Bay Area from his home in Southern California without approval.

The 25-year-old announced Monday he is being forced to push back his "Between the Sheets" tour, which was scheduled to kick off Tuesday and includes a March 6 stop at the SAP Center in San Jose. Venue spokesperson Jim Sparaco told NBC Bay Area, "according to the promoter," the San Jose date is still on.

"To the best of my knowledge, only the start of his tour has been postponed and will likely be rescheduled," Sparaco said in an email.

Brown broke the news via Instagram. The announcement comes after five people were shot while Brown was on stage performing at the Fiesta Nightclub in San Jose, early Sunday morning, Jan. 11. All five people who were shot survived.

A few days later, a Los Angeles County judge revoked Brown's probation, but allowed him to remain free, after the Grammy-winning singer performed in Northern California without obtaining permission to travel. He also failed to complete community service on time.

Brown was ordered by probation officials in December not to leave L.A. County without permission.

He was supposed to complete 1,000 hours of community labor by the end of January, but he still had roughly 200 hours to complete as of Jan. 15.

The 26-city tour was scheduled to conclude on March 8 at The Forum in Inglewood.
