LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Bobby Brown is leaving a reunion tour with the group New Edition to focus on his health.

A spokeswoman for the R&B group said group members Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant wish the 45-year-old singer a speedy recovery. No other details were provided.

"At this time, Bobby needs to put his health first, and we wish him a speedy recovery," said the statement. "We are giving each and every show all we've got until his return — and will continue giving the fans 110 per cent each night."

Brown was seen struggling to keep up with fellow New Edition members during a dance routine before leaving the stage in a video posted online of the group's July 2 show in Southaven, Mississippi.

The other New Edition members will continue for the remaining 16 shows of the All Six reunion tour.
