Frank Ocean Can’t Make It

Australian fans aren’t the only ones missing out on seeing Frank Ocean. In addition to nixing several gigs Down Under last week because of a torn vocal cord, the singer has canceled appearances at Canada’s and .

Doctors discovered Ocean had a small tear on one of his vocal cords after he experienced vocal problems during the first night of his Australian outing, a July 25 show in Melbourne. Live Nation and Niche Productions broke the bad news that the remainder of the Aussie tour was canceled so Ocean could rest his voice.

Now it looks like Ocean needs more time for R&R. With Ocean originally scheduled to headline the first night of Drake’s OVO Fest at Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre Aug. 4, the two-day festival has now shrunk to a single-day affair. Pollstar confirmed with the venue that James Blake’s set has been moved to Aug. 5, which features Drake and special guests.

Ocean won’t be performing at Osheaga Festival either, which is scheduled Aug. 2-4 at Montreal’s Parc Jean Drapeau. The festival tweeted today, “We regret to announce that Frank Ocean will not be able to perform due to illness. Since we heard about his condition, we’ve been working extremely hard to find a replacement. We will keep you posted.”
