On the heels of learning of Abbath's disasterous show last night, where the legendary black metal musician was too drunk to play more than a two song set, resulting in fans demanding refunds, we now learn the entire tour is cancelled.
Abbath just posted the news on social media, citing "health issues that need to be treated" as the reason for cancellation. Guitarist Ole André Farstad's status in the band is also currently unknown.
Here is the full 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 keep you posted with any further updates.
