The news broke last night that AC/DC is being forced to reschedule 10 dates of their tour (beginning tonight) after doctors have warned lead-man, Brian Johnson, that if he continues touring, he could suffer total hearing loss. Crazy. And if that’s the end of Brian Johnson on stage, it is truly a sad day.
Here is how the band put it on their website (you can also head to their site here)
