Frank Ocean has canceled the second weekend of his headlining Coachella set. According to a rep for the Novacane singer, Ocean sustained an injury to his leg last weekend and has been advised by his doctors not to perform this Sunday.
“After suffering an injury to his leg on festival grounds in the week leading up to weekend 1. 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,” his rep said per Variety. “On doctor’s advice, [Ocean] is not able to perform weekend 2 due to two fractures and a sprain in his left leg.”
The 35-year-old will be replaced by Blink-182, consisting of Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker.
TMZ reported Monday (April 17) that Ocean, real name Christopher Francis Ocean was involved in a bike accident during on-site rehearsals just days before he was scheduled to perform. He suffered a serious ankle injury, which forced him to change his production.
Ocean’s performance was plagued with problems, which included him arriving 57 minutes late and having to cut his performance short due to the event’s 12 a.m. curfew.
“It was chaotic,” Ocean said about his first headlining set in nearly six years. “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.”
