Frank Ocean Drops Out Of Coachella Week 2
Frank Ocean’s highly anticipated headlining performance at Coachella did not live up to the hype or the very high expectations of his fans. Unlike many of the other artists, Frank’s performance was not live-streamed. This upset many fans who had planned to watch from home. In addition, those who attended Coachella in person expressed some disappointment with the logistics and scheduling of the performance. Although people were pleased that he showed up, there were issues that prevented it from being a fully satisfying experience. From Frank showing up an hour late to an injury he sustained before the performance, the entire situation was a mess.
It isn’t all bad in the end, though. Frank did confirm that he has a new album on the way. “It’s been so long. Everybody talks about how long it’s been. ‘It’s been so long, it’s been so long.’ But I have missed you,” he said. “I want to talk about why I’m here, because it’s not because of a new album. It’s because — not that there’s not a new album… but there’s not right now. Chill, chill, chill. No, it’s not right now.” Hopefully that was at least some comfort to the fans who were upset that he was late. Though they may have been angry when he cut the set short, they will probably be counting themselves lucky now. Frank just pulled out of week 2.
Frank Leaves Fans Hanging
In a new statement released by Frank and his team, it has been confirmed that the artist will not be making an appearance at weekend 2. “Frank Ocean will not be performing at weekend 2 of Coachella. After suffering an injury to his leg on festival grounds in the week leading up to weekend 1,” the statement said. “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.” Cue disappointment and anger from Frank’s fans.
In the statement, Frank also had a few things to say. However, they were mostly empty words about how special it was to have been there the first weekend. “It was chaotic. There is some beauty in chaos. It isn’t what I intended to show,” Frank said. “But I did enjoy being out there and I’ll see you soon.” Whether or not this statement is enough to assuage the anger of fans who bought tickets specifically for Frank Ocean remains to be seen.
