. . . Although his pelvic thrusts were geriatric and his tongue aerobics creepy, Brown got through his portion of the New Jack Swing show without major incident. The "King of R&B" (who appeared with one-half of Jodeci, two-thirds of Tony! Toni! Ton¿! and one-third of Guy) ably revisited his post-New Edition, pre-Whitney Houston peak, including "Don't Be Cruel," "Roni" and, of course, "My Prerogative."
"Baltimore!" Brown shouted at one point. When the crowd failed to react, he asked, "Where am I right now?" After figuring out he was playing to a Washington crowd, Brown said, "They told me I was in Baltimore -- I guess so I could come out here and embarrass myself." The singer also played coy about his reported October heart attack: "You all think I had a heart attack, but I'm all right. I made it."
Aaron Hall of Guy inexplicably closed the show, a sequence that seemed to confuse everyone -- including Brown. "They told me I had an hour and 15 minutes, now they're telling me I only got 40," Brown said. Still, despite the truncated set, Bobby told fans not to worry about him. "I only got 40 minutes, but I still got broke off," he said of getting paid in full. "I can pay child support for another year -- y'all won't be seein' my [behind] in jail no more!"
