Frank Ocean cancels forthcoming dates, covered by Rita Ora

Frank Ocean has cancelled a number forthcoming dates, including a support slot for Coldplay.

In a note from Oean, he writes that although he “feels like an asshole”, “a tough decision had to be made in regard to my schedule over the next months, and the causalities of that decision include my appearances at upcoming festivals in Europe and my opening slot on the European leg of the Coldplay world tour. Sorry as fuck. I’ll be back if you’ll have me.”

The news follows recent voice problems for Ocean, who was forced to cut short a recent set at Norway’s Oya festival just days after cancelling a Detroit show. Amongst the cancelled dates (all European festival performances and Coldplay support dates, basically) are spots at Bestival and V Festival.

Meanwhile, the covers continue. Following recent Nite Jewel and Afghan Whigs takes on Ocean staples (‘Thinkin Bout You’, ‘Lovecrimes’), Rita Ora has covered Nostalgia, Ultra highlight ‘Swim Good’. You can watch that below.
