The Carpe Diem Tour is a headlining concert tour by American recording artist Chris Brown, in support of his fifth studio album Fortune. The tour includes shows in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Trinidad. It began on November 14, 2012 in Denmark and ended on December 27, 2012 in Trinidad.

Background[edit]

In May 2012, boy band The Wanted revealed to Capital FM that Brown was planning to launch a tour in the United States in July of the same year to support his fifth studio album, Fortune, and that there was a possibility they could be one of the supporting acts for the tour. Tom Parker, a member of the band, stated: "There's talk about us, he's got his American tour coming up in July, maybe we'll go on that for a few shows which will be cool".[1] However, details for a tour were not announced until September 25, 2012, when twelve dates for European venues were revealed.[2] An extra date for the European leg was announced on September 26, 2012.[3] The African tour dates were announced on September 28, 2012.[4]
