Frank Ocean canceled a concert due to a vocal cord injury.

Ocean canceled a Toronto date because a tear was found on one of his vocal cords, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show was originally going to take place on Aug. 4 at the OVO Fest.

The singer also had to cancel his Australian tour and his set at the Grass and Osheaga music festival.

“After last night’s [July 15] concert . . . it was necessary to seek medical advice due to vocal issues Frank Ocean experienced during the show. 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,” his promoter Live Nation said in a statement.

Tickets for the show at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre will be refunded. James Blake was scheduled to appear along with Ocean but has been moved to the August 5 date, MTV reports. Drake is also set to perform on Aug. 5, as well as unannounced guests.
