AC/DC Postpone Tour As Brian Johnson Faces ‘Total Hearing Loss’

AC/DC have postponed their 10 remaining U.S. dates, citing a scary medical issue for frontman Brian Johnson.
He has apparently been “advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss,”
according to a news release.
The band was set to bring their “Rock or Bust” tour to Atlanta on Tuesday ,March 8.

The same release says that dates through early April, when AC/DC was set to play Madison Square Garden
in New York City, “will be made up later in the year, likely with a guest vocalist.”
More information on these rescheduled shows is forthcoming.
Current tickets will be honored for these postponed dates; ticket prices will be also be refunded
at the point of purchase.
A complete list of postponed dates is below.

Johnson’s health issue continues a run of very bad luck for AC/DC that includes the retirement of founding member
Malcolm Young, who was diagnosed with dementia, and a protracted legal battle that sidelined long-time drummer Phil Rudd.
AC/DC replaced Malcolm with nephew Stevie Young, and then brought back former member Chris Slade.


AC/DC’s Postponed 2016 U.S. Dates:

3/08 — Atlanta, Ga. — Philips Arena
3/11 — Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. — BB&T Center
3/14 — Greensboro, N.C. — Greensboro Coliseum
3/17 — Washington, D.C. — Verizon Center
3/20 — Detroit, Mich. — The Palace
3/23 — Columbus, Ohio — Nationwide Arena
3/26 — Cleveland, Ohio — Quicken Loans Arena
3/29 — Buffalo, N.Y. — First Niagara Center
4/01 — Philadelphia, Pa. — Wells Fargo Center
4/04 — New York, N.Y. — Madison Square Garden

AC/DC’s Brian Johnson Once Traced Hearing Loss To Race-Car Driving.

After hearing that AC/DC are shutting down their touring for a period to avoid singer Brian Johnson suffering
total hearing loss, you might assume that years of rocking stadiums with high energy rock and cannon blasts
might have taken their toll.
But in a 2014 interview with radio host Howard Stern, Johnson revealed that he had hearing issues
that related to something else completely.

Stern asked the rocker if the use of cannons as stage props has affected his hearing and he initially states,
“Well, I’ve obviously had some hearing loss, but that doesn’t help.”
As the discussion about the cannons continues, Johnson reveals that it wasn’t the props or the music that
were the primary source of his issues.

“I didn’t get it from music. I got it from sitting in a race car too long without earplugs,” explained Johnson.
“I heard me eardrum burst, because I forgot to put me plugs in under my helmet.
That’s how it happened.
Music had nothing to do with it.”

He elaborated about the incident, revealing that he felt dizzy after it happened and that blood was emerging
from under his helmet.
The vocalist went on to say that he could actually hear very little out of one ear, likening it to tinnitus.
When asked about the ringing, he told Stern, “Ah, you know, you forget about it after a week.”

The news about Johnson’s hearing condition emerged Monday afternoon (March 7) when a press release
revealed that doctors advised the rocker not to tour.
They stated that if he did, he could risk potential total hearing loss.
As such, AC/DC have postponed the 10 remaining U.S. dates on their tour and hope to make them up later
this year.
There was even talk of fulfilling the shows, but with someone else handling vocals in Johnson’s place.
