The Ocean Vocalist Loïc Rossetti To Exit Band’s Tour To Undergo Surgery For His Broken Legs


The Ocean have issued a statement on the injuries recently sustained by their vocalist Loïc Rossetti amid the band’s ongoing North American tour. While he was able to fight through the pain and perform the band’s recent Los Angeles and Berkeley shows in a wheelchair, he will now be exiting the tour to undergo surgery.

The band commented on the matter yesterday, March 24th:

“Loïc literally went a little too far and broke both of his legs 2 days ago, he’s got 4 fractures in total and needs surgery. He still played the L.A. show with us in a wheelchair yesterday despite being in severe pain, and he will perform with us one last time tonight in Berkeley. Then he will be transferred to Switzerland for surgery.

The show must go on, we will continue this tour without him. We will play ‘Phanerozoic II‘ in its entirety for the next few shows, and run his vocals as backing tracks. We’ve always thought it’s super lame to do that, but under the given circumstances it seems like the best option and we trust you agree that this is no Milli Vanilli situation. Gabbo from Implore is with us and might take on vocal duties for some tracks too.

By all means, please DO come out to the remaining shows to support us in these difficult times. This tour has been such a blast so far, it’s a big blow for us as you can imagine and of course for Loïc more than anything.

Thank you.”
