We take a look at the reasons why the 'Slide' singer keeps cancelling his shows...
Catching Frank Ocean performing live has become almost impossible in recent years and it seems that 2017 is no different. He's already cancelled two festival dates this year and has now gone and dropped another date from his schedule.
The 'blond' singer claimed that production delays were the reason he'd had two cancel the two previous shows - one at Hangout Festival, Alabama and another at Sasquatch! Music Festival - and it seems that production delays are once again focing him to cancel a third festival.
Primavera shared a statement about the cancellation on their Facebook page...
But fans who are attending two festivals in the UK where Frank Ocean is scheduled to perform, Parklife and Lovebox, are pretty nervous that he may cancel those too...

So we decided to break down what might happen in the near future...
At the moment, there's absolutely no reason why Frank Ocean would cancel his scheduled appearance at Lovebox. The date has been booked for a long time and considering that the festival isn't until 14th July, there's plenty of time to iron out those 'production controls'.
As with Lovebox, there is no indication that Frank Ocean won't be taking to the stage at Parklife. This one is a little nearer, beginning on 10th June, so fans would be entitled to be a bit worried considering all the recent cancellations.
As we said, production delays have been revealed as the reason why the shows are being cancelled, but many people think there could be more to it. Performance anxiety and many other things have been suggested, but as the official statements all say it's to do with production that's what we'll have to accept.
