Frank Ocean cancels Coachella Weekend 2 performance due to leg injury: ‘I’ll see you soon’
Frank Ocean will no longer perform at the second weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival after sustaining an injury to his leg, his representative said.
In a statement provided to USA TODAY Wednesday, Ocean’s representative shared that the singer, 35, sustained a leg injury on the festival grounds last week that impacted his performance at the festival’s first weekend. He was set to also perform at the second weekend this Sunday.
“Frank Ocean was unable to perform the intended show but was still intent on performing, and in 72 hours, the show was reworked out of necessity,” the statement read. “On doctor’s advice, Frank Ocean is not able to perform weekend 2 due to two fractures and a sprain in his left leg.”
The representative also provided the following statement from Ocean: “It was chaotic. There is some beauty in chaos. It isn’t what I intended to show but I did enjoy being out there and I’ll see you soon.”
TMZ was the first to report the news. USA TODAY has reached out to representatives for Coachella for comment and further details.
Ocean’s weekend one set drew criticism from fans on social media who were disappointed and confused with what they described as an underwhelming performance.
