After the tumult surrounding Frank Ocean’s closing set on the last day of Coachella last weekend, there was speculation as to how the reclusive R&B artist would return the second weekend.
It was reported that a leg injury caused Ocean’s team to have to change the setup for the show only around 72 hours before. There was supposed to be a full ice skating rink on the stage, but Ocean decided he did not want the piece anymore, reportedly due to his leg injury.
And a statement from Coachella confirmed that the injury still affects the world-renowned singer and he will have to drop out, “due to two fractures and a sprain in his left leg.”
This is the second time in a row Coachella has had to replace a headliner last minute after Kanye West pulled out of his slot last year. Kanye West was replaced by a shared set from Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd in 2022.
