Headphone-Wearing Ocean Comes To NYC

Frank Ocean will take the stage in New York City Friday for the first time since 2012. Five years after he stopped here on the tour behind his debut album “Channel Orange,” the enigmatic R&B artist will headline the second annual Panorama Music Festival at Randall’s Island. This time Frank will come armed with another full-length record under his belt, “Blond.” Many New Yorkers have never heard these songs live before. Granted, Frank’s setup is pretty involved. The singer keeps a pair of Vic Firth headphones on during his entire show, as a cameraman captures images of him that are then distorted and displayed on the giant screen behind him.
