frank ocean will not be joining james blake on his 1-800 dinosaur tour
Rumours that Frank Ocean aka BOYSDONTCRY would be joining James Blake on tour have been confirmed as just that
James Blake's 1-800 Dinosaur tour with a line-up of Klaus, Trim, Dan Foat and Mr Assister, kicked off last night, Thursday 9th, in Bristol. Following Blake's insta-announcement that a special guest billed as BOYSDONTCRY would be accompanying him, Frank fans looked back to his big album/magazine reveal, which he hashtagged #boysdontcry and put two and two together. Adding fuel to the already excited flame, JB's following "To be frank we are announcing BOYSDONTCRY to the line up for the 1-800 Road Trip" caption did all but confirm the rumour. Fans flooded down to Bristol's Lakota for the first in what appeared to be a three-date collaboration between the two artists, only to be disappointed.
James Blake has since clarified the situation on facebook, stating "Frank and I are not performing live or on tour - we're on a 1-800 DINOSAUR road trip, putting on club nights and documenting the weekend for the BoysDontCry Magazine. Blog that, as that's the correct information." However, the third in the series of nights, Saturday 11th, is at an undisclosed venue in London so perhaps a surprise appearance is still on the cards? #doublebluff
