ABBATH have canceled the remainder of their South American tour, one day after the band canceled a show in Buenos Aires after only two songs. The reasons given are health problems.
The solo project of the former IMMORTAL frontman Abbath (alias Olve Eikemo) has canceled the remaining dates of his current South American tour for health reasons. Norwegian Black Metal Officials' Statement reads: "With a heavy heart we must announce the cancellation of the remainder of the South America Outstrider tour of ABBATH due to health issues that need to be addressed Able to complete the recent shows in Argentina and Brazil, we apologize profoundly to all the fans who came and wanted to see us, the local promoters and Matrix Entertainment, who worked tirelessly to make this tour possible. We hope we can make it to all of you someday, and we are very sorry. "The tour cancellation of ABBATH follows just after a day on a concert of the band in Buenos Aires, which was canceled after only two songs and numerous angry Fan reactions arose. Frontman Abbath would have dropped his guitar after 10 seconds of the opening 'Count The Dead' and then threw himself into the audience. Afterwards, the band would have performed a version of the song 'Tyrants' written by its former band IMMORTAL as "weak", before the singer left the stage and did not return.
