Frank Ocean has torn one of his vocal cords, forcing him to call off the last part of his Australian tour with promoter Live Nation saying "Frank Ocean's remaining Australian dates will not go ahead due to illness. After last night's concert in Melbourne at Festival Hall, it was necessary to seek medical advice due to vocal issues Frank Ocean experienced during the show" adding "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. This makes the completion of his remaining Australian dates impossible".
And Blondie drummer Clem Burke has told reporters that Debbie Harry is thinking about retiring from the band after four decades. The Daily Mail quotes Burke saying: "Debbie is eleven years older than the rest of us, so it's on her mind. We've tried to keep it going for as long as possible, but it's not just up to me. Nothing is finalised yet, but obviously there's no Blondie without Debbie Harry".
