AC/DC recently had to reschedule the rest of its Rock or Bust World Tour after it became clear that Brian Johnson couldn’t continue to perform because of a hearing condition, which the singer opened up about in a note distributed Tuesday.
In the note, Johnson explains he “risked total deafness” if he kept performing at large venues “where the sound levels are beyond [his] current tolerance.” Guns ‘N Roses’ Axl Rose will be joining AC/DC on the remaining dates of their current tour.
