Frank Ocean Has Dropped Out Of Coachella’s Second Weekend And Blink-182 Will Replace Him As Headliner

April 20, 2023 / Posted by:

Frank Ocean was originally supposed to headline Coachella in 2020. Then COVID came along and proved to be a bigger health hazard to music festivals than Gerard Butler fucking a random in a Porta Potty. Frank headlined this year’s Coachella instead, and it was his first live performance in six years. So his fans (The Oceanographers?) were ready, but many of them ended up with a serious case of musical blue balls. Some who were in the audience during Frank Ocean’s first Coachella set last weekend say that they probably would’ve gotten a more exciting performance from a third-tier tribute act called Frank Puddle in a show sponsored by Ambien. So it’s no surprise that Frank isn’t headlining Coachella’s upcoming second weekend, and he blamed his bunk ankle on what took him out.

Frank’s headlining Coachella set on Sunday night was supposed to start at 10:05, but he didn’t take the stage until an hour later. And like most of Trump’s sex partners, Frank’s fans complained about his performance or lack thereof. Frank apparently lip-synched at times, moved around to pre-recorded tracks instead of performing them, and ended early due to curfew rules. (Coachella was hit with $117,000 in fines for breaking curfew rules throughout weekend one). Frank also reportedly pulled the planned live stream of his performance at the last minute. Here’s a tiny piece from his set:

Right after some of Frank’s fans gave his Coachella performance one star on Yelp, sources began talking about what went wrong. Frank’s younger brother, Ryan Breaux, died at just 18 years old in a car accident in 2020. Frank and Ryan went to Coachella together, and during his set, Frank shared his memories of those times. So many figured that Frank was upset during his show. Sources also said that Frank messed up his ankle during rehearsals. His injury is reportedly what led to him shit-canning what was supposed to be the WOW FACTOR of his set.

I guess Frank was planning to bust out a live reboot of The Cutting Edge at Coachella because he had a hockey rink built for the stage and was going to bring out over 100 hockey players and figure skaters to skate during his performance. They rehearsed for a month but were told at the last minute that Frank got injured, and so the show’s entire skating element was scrapped. And now his second show has been scrapped too. In a statement to Billboard, Frank’s rep said that he’s bowing out of weekend two on doctor’s orders.

“After suffering an injury to his leg on festival grounds in the week leading up to weekend 1, Frank Ocean was unable to perform the intended show but was still intent on performing, and in 72 hours, the show was reworked out of necessity. On doctor’s advice, Frank is not able to perform weekend 2 due to two fractures and a sprain in his left leg.”

Frank also gave his own statement, and it reads like something I’d say to an ex after they dumped me because our relationship was too messy.

“It was chaotic. There is some beauty in chaos. It isn’t what I intended to show but I did enjoy being out there and I’ll see you soon.”

So those Frank Ocean fans who dropped a ton of cash and a kidney to see him at Coachella for weekend two are out of luck. Or are they?! I mean, Blink-182 will take over Frank Ocean’s headlining slot this Sunday night. And whenever you think of Frank Ocean, you immediately think of Blink-182.

The dudes of Blink-182, Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Travis Barker, performed on one of Coachella’s smaller stages last week, but now they’re moving to the main stage. Here’s a piece of their performance:

So let’s see, Frank Ocean’s first Coachella set was a disaster, and then Blink-192 magically sashayed in to save the day. Nomi Malone, is that you, girl?! Now, I’m not saying that Pimp Mama Kris put a curse on Frank Ocean so that Kourtney Kardashian wouldn’t have to once again feel the shame of her husband performing at Coachella as a non-headliner, but I’m not saying Pimp Mama Kris didn’t either.
