Frank Ocean - Frank Ocean Overcomes Lollapalooza Rain To Wow Crowds06 August 2012
Ocean was one of the artists who had his initial set time changed following the floods on the Saturday, but he didn't let that put him off as he took to the stage later that same evening and indeed in contrast to the big shots on the main stage, it was the intimacy of his performance that won the crowd over. Opening with a cover of Sade's 'By Your Side', Ocean was content to let his singing do the job, with little crowd interaction in between songs, captivating instead with his presence and voice.
A great live band helped, but it was his show, and the high point came with the song 'Bad Religion', which he introduced as "important ... for all the things I've said in the past month" adding "I'm just taking some freedom for myself." It was a freedom the crowd in Chicago were more than happy to share in.
