Our friends over at MTV had the chance to attend Lollapalooza 2012 and experience Frank Ocean’s emotional set last night. Here’s an insight of the R&B singers show, according to James Montgomery (@positivnegativ):
Thanks to the severe weather that shut Lolla down earlier in the day, Frank Ocean’s set was pushed to 9:45 p.m., meaning he’d go head-to-head with two of the hugest acts on the planet. Though if he was feeling the pressure, you wouldn’t have known it, as he delivered a performance that was emotive, evocative and edgy.
And though he was jovial throughout, Ocean wasn’t afraid to get emotional, either. He introduced Bad Religion by telling the audience that the song was
“important … for all the things I’ve said in the past month,” and added “I’m just taking some freedom for myself,” before singing the song with his eyes shut tight.
Enjoy his performance of Bad Religion, Pyramids and his cover of Sade’s By Your Side, below.
