After cancelling a slew of festival appearances recently, Frank Ocean finally played his first show in support of last year’s ‘Blonde’ and ‘Endless’ albums - and his first at all in three years - last night (9th June).
The singer headlined the NorthSide event in Aarhus, Denmark, playing cuts from both records, alongside recent singles and a pair of contributions from 2012’s ‘channel ORANGE’.
Performances at Hangout and Sasquatch! festivals in the US were cancelled, alongside a slot at Primavera Sound in Barcelona, all due to “production issues beyond his control,” but the tour finally kicked off last night, and is set to continue this weekend at Parklife in Manchester.
