AC/DC Singer Brian Johnson Could Be Forced Into Retirement | Music News
AC/DC singer Brian Johnson is to potentially stop touring to save his hearing. Doctors told the veteran frontman that if he stays on the road he risks maybe going deaf. Brian Johnson has been advised by doctors to stop touring immediately, or face “total hearing loss”.
The band have postponed the remaining ten dates of their US tour, though the band say they “will be made up later in the year, likely with a guest vocalist”. Tour dates through to Sunday, June 12 are still listed on their website.
Johnson has been AC/DC’s singer since 1980, when he joined following the death of Bon Scott. His first record with the group, Back In Black, became the second best-selling album of all time, behind Michael Jackson’s Thriller. He became a firm favourite with fans for his apparently boundless goodwill.
