[News] Frank Ocean to Open for Coldplay in Europe

In a surprising turn of events, Frank Ocean is going to make the leap from intimate solo performances to opening for Coldplay during their European stadium tour. This marks a major turning point for the Odd Future crooner, whose live appearances have been small and sparce. Ocean and Rita Ora will serve as opening acts for Coldplay during eight of their European tour dates, starting on August 30th in Stockholm.

Metronomy, Robyn, Marina and the Diamonds, The Pieces, Wolf Gang, Emile Sande and Ash will also serve as opening acts throughout the rest of Coldplay's tour. After the jump, you can take a look at Coldplay's full tour itinerary.
