Rock band AC/DC to halt 10 tour dates of their “Rock or Bust” world tour

March 09, 2016: According to the publicist of the veteran rock band AC/DC, due to the lead singer Brian Johnson’s possibility of losing his hearing if he takes the stage, the band has been forced to reschedule 10 dates on the US leg of its ‘Rock or Bust’ world tour.

The band known for its blazing guitars and full-throated vocals on songs like “Back in Black” and “Highway to Hell” will reschedule dates starting with a Tuesday show in Atlanta through an April 4 date in New York.

The band’s publicist said, “Brian Johnson has been advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss”.

Further adding he said, the band will perform the shows later in the year, likely with a guest vocalist.

Having joined the band in 1980, Johnson, 68, took over lead vocals just after former front man Bon Scott died. The band being formed in the early 1970s made it into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.
