Abbath performed an awkward two-song concert in Buenos Aires, Argentina on Wednesday (November 13), compelling many fans to demand a refund.

According to El Culto, the show at Club Palermo began two hours late, forcing two opening acts to play abbreviated sets. When Abbath finally began their performance, its namesake frontman (Olve Eikemo) was reportedly inebriated accompanied by bassist Mia Wallace and drummer Ukri Suvilehto, but not guitarist Ole André Farstad, who allegedly skipped the show as the result of an argument with Abbath eariler in the day.

Abbath attempted to perform a pair of songs, at one point throwing down his guitar and jumping into the crowd, before returning to his dressing room. He never reappeared. Some video footage can be found below.

The remainder of Abbath's South American tour has now been canceled, with the following statement put forth:

"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."
