Frank Ocean Australian Tour Cancellation

REMAINING AUSTRALIAN SHOWS CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS

FRIDAY JULY 26, 2013 – Live Nation and Niche Productions regret to announce that Frank Ocean’s remaining Australian dates will not go ahead due to illness. After last night’s concert in Melbourne at Festival Hall, it was necessary to seek medical advice due to vocal issues Frank Ocean experienced during the show. It has subsequently been confirmed that Frank has suffered a small tear to one of his vocal chords and has received medical advice that he must rest his voice.

This makes the completion of his remaining Australian dates impossible. Unfortunately due to Frank Ocean’s tight tour schedule it is not possible to schedule replacement dates, however we will be working to confirm a return to Australia as soon as is practical.

All ticket holders for the headline dates (listed below) may obtain a full refund from the point of purchase.

Friday July 26 – Melbourne, Festival Hall
Monday July 29 – Sydney, Hordern Pavilion
Tuesday July 30 – Sydney, Hordern Pavilion

Splendour in the Grass commented that:

“With Splendour already in full swing this is devastating news for the event and will be for many of our patrons. We do want to remind everyone that over 70 of the best acts in the world right now are still here and ready to go including our previously billed mystery band, Alt-J.”

Further enquiries with regard to Splendour in the Grass should be directed to the Festival. For all tickets booked online or by phone, the credit card used in the booking will automatically be refunded. Please allow up to five days to receive your refund. If the original credit card you used for the purchase has been cancelled or no longer valid please contact place of purchase.

If you made your booking at an outlet please return to the original outlet where the booking was made with your ticket(s) and credit card used to purchase in hand to obtain your refund. Refunds will only be provided to the original purchaser on presentation of photo ID.
