Frank Ocean Cancels OVO Fest Performance Due to Vocal Injury
Frank Ocean has been forced to pull out of his appearance at the 4th Annual OVO Fest due to a vocal cord injury.
The channel ORANGE singer was set to perform on the first day of Drake’s two-day festival at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto on August 4.
Due to his injury, the entire day has been canceled, Live Nation announced on Tuesday (via Billboard). Tickets for opening night will be refunded.
James Blake, who was to perform at Sunday’s show, will now join the lineup for the August 5 concert alongside Drake and Wale.
Ocean previously canceled the remaining dates on his sold-out Australian tour. During the first night in Melbourne, he informed the crowd that he was not feeling well.
After a trip to the doctor, Live Nation released a statement. “It has subsequently been confirmed that Frank has suffered a small tear to one of his vocal cords and has received medical advice that he must rest his voice.”
