As I tweeted yesterday, Frank Ocean last-minute-cancelled his NYC show at Bowery Ballroom last night (11/6). He wrote:

NEW YORK IS CANCELLED.

or should i say postponed. i played last night in new orleans, on antibiotics and some other meds. got sick a cpl days before i left los angeles. woke up this morning in new york and could barely speak. called a doctor to my hotel, got a steroid shot. took some more meds. laid in bed allday till soundcheck, got to the venue and could barely sing any of my songs. im really sorry yall. i been workin on this show for months, did everything i could to make it special for yall. i'll be back soon as i'm healthy. thats my word. tickets will be valid for that, or you guys can get refunded. damn. this shit sucks.

The cancellation was so last minute that people were already at the venue. The consolation prize was one of the above-pictured hats which were otherwise for sale as part of his tour merch.

I tweeted that from Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin where his friends in Odd Future did go on as planned just a few hours later. Stay tuned for more on that.

Jay-Z and Kanye West played their second of two Izod Center shows last night, and play their first at Madison Square Garden this evening. Their setlist from the first NJ show is HERE.
