Frank Ocean has canceled the rest of his Australian tour after tearing a vocal cord, according to reports.


Frank Ocean had to cancel his sold-out Australian mini-tour after yesterday’s opening night. The singer learned that he’s torn a vocal cord.

According to Billboard, Ocean realized he wasn’t entirely well, and shared the information with fans mid-performance of his song “Forrest Gump.” “I’m sick … I don’t know if you care,” he said. He closed the show without an encore, saying instead, “I don’t wanna speak much tonight but I do wanna thank you guys,”

He recieved a diagnosis afterwards, during a visit to the doctor. “After last night’s concert … it was necessary to seek medical advice due to vocal issues Frank Ocean experienced during the show,” the show’s promoter said via a statement.

The singer was scheduled for four dates in the Down Under, and he’s on the bill for Drake’s OVO Fest next month.
