Ocean's representative confirmed the ailment.

Live Nation said because of Ocean's busy calendar, the R&B singer would not be able to reschedule the Australian dates. Ticket buyers can receive refunds from the point of purchase.

The 25-year-old singer was to perform Friday at Festival Hall and in Sydney on Monday and Tuesday.

Ocean won two Grammy Awards this year, including best urban contemporary album for "channel, ORANGE."
