UPDATE 8/13/2012: Unfortunately for international fans of Frank Ocean, the rapper has pulled out of his remaining European tour dates, including all performances with Coldplay. An apologetic Ocean released the following statement through the Swedish festival, Way Out West:

    “Let me start by saying I feel like an asshole right now, but a tough decision had to be made in regard to my schedule over the next months. Sorry as fu-k, I’ll be back if you’ll have me.”

No further details were given as to the specific nature of the scheduling conflict, nor if Ocean plans to reschedule the missed shows. This isn’t the first time the Odd Future artist has made flaky headlines abroad: He recently canceled a series of Norway concerts, citing vocal problems. Check back here when – if? – Frank Ocean’s mea culpa materializes into a new round of tour dates!

Frank Ocean is moving up in status, this time on a global level. Having performed at Coachella this past April, the Odd Future member has been tapped by none other than Coldplay (thanks to Billboard for the scoop) to open a series of dates on the European leg of their “Mylo Xyloto” world tour.
