Frank Ocean has been forced to cancel his upcoming Australian tour after experiencing a torn vocal cord.
By now a Grammy award winning, internationally recognised star, Frank Ocean has been thrust into the world of heavy touring. Recently completing a short visit to the UK, the Odd Future associate left fans hugely impressed with his backing band, stage show and - above all - his delivery.
Flying out to Australia, the singer had planned on completing a full tour. Sadly, though, Frank Ocean's health has intervened and the American artist has been forced to pull all shows.
Suffering a torn vocal cord, Frank Ocean has perhaps wisely decided to let his throat rest before heading back out on the road. Promoters Live Nation and Niche Productions released the following statement: (via FACT)
"After last night’s concert in Melbourne at Festival Hall, it was necessary to seek medical advice due to vocal issues Frank Ocean experienced during the show. It has subsequently been confirmed that Frank has suffered a small tear to one of his vocal chords and has received medical advice that he must rest his voice."
Frank Ocean has cancelled the following dates:
26 Melbourne Festival Hall
29 Sydney Hordern Pavilion
30 Sydney Hordern Pavilion
