Ocean’s return to the stage disappointed some fans after his nearly six year hiatus.
Ocean’s headline performance was supposed to begin at 11 pm, but didn’t begin until nearly 90 minutes later. In addition to the delay, the show was cut short due to the curfew rules.
“Guys, I’m being told it’s curfew, so that’s the end of the show,” announced Ocean on Sunday night.
Despite a livestream on YouTube for the other headliners, Ocean’s show was not broadcasted.
Ocean also supposedly called off a fancy production for his headline show, including ice skaters. TMZ reports that it was due to a bicycling incident that injured his ankle, however they note that the doctors say it was not serious enough to shift the production.
