Frank Ocean kicks off ‘channel ORANGE’ tour in Seattle [Video]

Having dominated all measures of media recently with the surprise early release and storming success of his long-awaited debut album, channel ORANGE (as well as wider personal issues that needn’t be mulled over), Frank Ocean marked the start of his accompanying tour at Seattle’s Showbox at the Market last night (Friday).

In an intimate setting, the R&B star gave beautiful live renditions of hits from both channel ORANGE (for the very first time) and his 2011 breakout mixtape, nostalgia, ULTRA, including “Sweet Life”, “Novocane”, “Strawberry Swing”, “American Wedding” and “Bad Religion”, all of which you can catch below.

After bringing his 14-date tour to a close on August 1st in Detroit, Ocean will be joining Coldplay on their European arena tour later that month. Click here for the tourdates.
