Frank Ocean fans in Australian received some bad news this week. According to reports, the “Novacane” singer was forced to cancel his tour after discovering a small tear on his vocal cord.

Sources say Ocean received medical attention after experiencing throat problems and performing “off-key” on the first stop of his Down Under tour at Melbourne’s Festival Hall.

“After last night’s concert… it was necessary to seek medical advice due to vocal issues Frank Ocean experienced during the show,” the tour’s promoter said in a statement. “It has subsequently been confirmed that Frank has suffered a small tear to one of his vocal cords and has received medical advice that he must rest his voice.”

Another spokesperson for the event described this as “devastating news.”

“I’m sick… I don’t know if you care,” the 25-year-old R&B crooner told audience members during a performance of “Forrest Gump.” “I don’t wanna speak much tonight but I do wanna thank you guys.”
