AC/DC Suspend Tour As Brian Johnston Is Warned He might Lose All Hearing

Brian Johnson of AC/DC performs at ANZ Stadium in Sydney, 18/2/10

First the story, via Brooklynvegan:

AC/DC are rescheduling 10 U.S. dates on their “Rock or Bust” World Tour, as singer Brian Johnson has been advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss. The remainder of the tour, which was to wrap up on April 4 at NYC’s Madison Square Garden, will be made up later in the year, likely with a guest vocalist.

All previously purchased tickets will be honored at the show’s makeup date, and refunds are available at point of purchase. All dates to be rescheduled are listed below:

C/DC – 2016 tour dates to be rescheduled
03/08 – Atlanta, GA @ Philips Arena
03/11 – Ft. Lauderdale, FL @ BB&T Center
03/14 – Greensboro, NC @ Greensboro Coliseum
03/17 – Washington, DC @ Verizon Center
03/20 – Auburn Hills, MI @ The Palace at Auburn Hills
03/23 – Columbus, OH @ Nationwide Arena
03/26 – Cleveland, OH @ Quicken Loans Arena
03/29 – Buffalo, NY @ First Niagara Center
04/01 – Philadelphia, PA @ Wells Fargo Center
04/04 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden
I went to see them last year at Metlife and thought they were fine, Steve Crawford went to see them last week and thought they were terrible, despite being a teenage AC/DC fiend. But I don’t think either of them wanted it to end like this.

In 2016, time is wreaking havoc with rock and roll. All these bands that claimed rock and roll will never die are dying, and the only way to stop time is not to play. Which doesn’t work either. Who on earth can they get to replace Brian…?
