Abbath Officially Cancels Remainder of South American Tour


Abbath has officially cancelled the remainder of his currently-in-progress South American tour, citing “health issues that need to be treated.”

The news comes after reports that the former Immortal frontman was forced to cut short last night’s show in Argentina because he was too drunk to perform. He may have also parted ways with guitarist Ole André Farstad. A performance scheduled to take place this evening at the Patagonia Metal Fest was cancelled just hours ago.

Says Abbath in a statement:

“It is with heavy heart that we have to announce the cancellation of the remainder of the Abbath South American Outstrider tour. Due to health issues that need to be treated, we are unable to complete the last shows in Argentina and Brazil. We deeply apologize to all of our fans that wanted to come and see us, to the local promoters, and to Matrix Entertainment who has worked tirelessly in order to make this tour happen. We hope we can make it up to all you some day. We are very sorry.

We’ll let you know if there are any further updates to the story.
