Drake's upcoming, fourth annual OVO Fest in Toronto just caught a big change of plans. The first day of the festival, Saturday, August 4, has been cancelled because of scheduled headliner Frank Ocean's injured vocal cord. Billboard reports that James Blake, who was the first show's headliner with Ocean, will be added to the second day (Aug. 5), which is headlined by Drake and Wale. Ocean first learned of his condition after a show in Melbourne on July 26. A visit to the doctor revealed that he had a partially torn vocal cord and he was ordered to rest his voice. In turn, the rest of his Australian tour was cancelled.
Tickets for the now cancelled first day of the OVO Fest at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto will be refunded. No word on when Frank Ocean will be able to resume his performance schedule.
