Frank Ocean has been forced to scrap the rest of his Australian tour after tearing one of his vocal chords.
The Swim Good hitmaker took to the stage for just one gig at Melbourne's Festival hall last night (July 25) before cancelling the rest of the dates.
He was due to perform a second night in Melbourne, before moving on to Splendour In The Grass festival in Byron Bay on July 28 and Sydney's Hordern Pavilion on July 29 and 30.
A statement from promoters Live Nation read: "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."
It concluded: "This makes the completion of his remaining Australian dates impossible."
Frank's dates will not be rearranged due to his hectic schedule, with fans able to get refunds for both gigs in Melbourne and Sydney.
Ocean also hit the news this week for seeming to attack rival Chris Brown on a remix of the Migos track, Versace.
