The 'Blonde' artist made his long-awaited comeback to the live stage last night (June 9) with his performance at Denmark's NorthSide Festival
Frank Ocean played his first live show in three years last night (June 9) at NorthSide Festival in Denmark – watch fan-shot footage of the long-awaited performance below.
The ‘Blonde’ artist announced his return to the live arena earlier this year by confirming a slew of summer festival dates in Europe and the US. However, the tour was recently thrown into some doubt after Ocean cancelled a small number of shows – including a headline slot at Primavera – owing to “production delays”.
But despite the uncertainty, Ocean has now made his return to the live stage with a headline slot at Denmark’s Northside Festival. Taking to the stage at 11:15pm wearing a white hoody and black headphones, he kicked off with the ‘Blonde’ tracks ‘Pretty Sweet’ and ‘Solo’, before also live-debuting the stand-alone singles ‘Chanel’ and ‘Lens’.
Other tracks from ‘Blonde’ – including ‘Ivy’, ‘Nights’ and ‘Nikes’ – featured in the setlist along with the ‘Endless’ songs ‘Comme Des Garcons’ and ‘Good Guy’, while ‘Channel Orange’ was represented with renditions of ‘Pyramids’ and ‘Thinkin’ Bout You’.
