Grammy Award-winning R'n'B artist Frank Ocean will soon trek across Europe, Australia and Canada for his forthcoming "California Live" world tour. The 25-year-old singer/songwriter just revealed the 14 dates of his summer tour that will take him to 9 European countries, before he makes stopovers in Byron Bay in Australia and Montreal.

The "Channel Orange" artist will kick off his upcoming international performances on June 27 at the Tap 1 events venue in Copenhagen, Denmark, flying the next day to Norrkopping, Sweden for the Bravalla Festival. Throughout July, Ocean will travel to The Netherlands, France, Norway, Belgium, Ireland and Iceland, playing one show in each of those countries and four shows in the United Kingdom, including his July 12 scheduled appearance at the Wireless Festival in London's Olympic Park.

By July 28, the "Lost" singer will perform in the Splendour in the Grass Festival in Australia, followed a few days later by his August 3 world tour culmination in Montreal, Quebec, Canada for the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival. Right after his "California Live" tour, Ocean will headline Drake's OVO Fest with James Blake on August 4 at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre.

Apart from touring, Ocean is busy working on his sophomore album, the much-awaited follow-up to his critically-acclaimed 2012 debut "Channel Orange", which earned him the Best Contemporary Album and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration Awards at this year's Grammys.
