Frank Ocean announces O2 Academy Brixton show Tuesday 9th July
Frank Ocean makes his long awaited live return to the UK this July, when he headlines his biggest European show so far at the O2 Academy Brixton on Tuesday 9th July.
Since his last live show back in November 2011 at XOYO, Frank Ocean’s career has gone into overdrive. He followed up the release of his mixtape “Nostalgia, Ultra” with his incredible debut album proper “Channel Orange” released in July 2012 on Mercury/Def Jam, it’s an awe-inspiring piece of work. Lyrically daring and musically adventurous, it’s the work of a man with a singular vision, and has rightly received the kind of praise an instant classic record deserves.
As well as being a member of Odd Future, Frank has appeared on tracks by Beyoncé (I Miss You) and on the Kanye West and Jay-z album “Watch The Throne” (No Church In The Wild) “Channel Orange” was nominated for six Grammy’s, winning for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
He also picked up and award for Best Rap/Sung Performance with Kanye, Jay Z and The-Dream for “No Church In The Wild”.
