Chris Brown was ordered by a Los Angeles judge Thursday to remain on supervised probation and make another court appearance after he completes an overseas tour.

Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg did not address questions raised at a previous hearing about whether the 23-year-old R&B singer had completed the terms of his community labor sentence.

A prosecutor said a report filed for Thursday's hearing did not add additional details about Brown's service as previously requested by the court. Brown is scheduled to return to court Jan. 17.

Brown remains on supervised probation for felony assault for an attack on his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

In September, officials in Brown's home state of Virginia reported that the singer completed six months of community labor, but the judge called those records "somewhat cryptic" at the time.

Brown is scheduled to begin a tour that spans several countries in Europe and South Africa on Nov. 14.

Brown appeared at the hearing along with his mother and attorney Mark Geragos. He did not speak during the proceedings, and when he attempted to at one point during discussions of his schedule, Geragos joked, "I don't dance, you don't talk."
