Frank Ocean Announces First Live Shows In Three Years

Dates were just revealed for gigs in the U.S. and Europe.

Most people seem to agree that 2016 is going down as one one of the worst years in modern history, but it can’t be all bad. Frank Ocean did, after all, finally grace us with new music earlier this year after a plethora of teases and false alarms.

The openly gay artist is continuing to deliver now with the announcement of his first live performance dates behind his Blonde album.

Ocean will headline Alabama’s Hangout Music Festival May 19-21 and then Washington’s Sasquatch Music Festival at the end of May.

The singer also delighted fans overseas with the news of a June 9 show at Denmark’s NorthSide Festival and an appearance at London’s Lovebox Festival on July 14.

Although the news marks Ocean’s first shows since 2014, there’s still no word on whether or not fans will be getting a full-blown tour from the mysterious performer.
