AC/DC forced to reschedule tour dates after Brian Johnson is given hearing warning

It's looking increasingly like the beginning of the end for AC/DC.

The legendary rock 'n' roll band have just rescheduled a host of dates on their US tour, after a doctor's warning that singer Brian Johnson risks 'total hearing loss' if the shows go ahead.

A statement on the band's website said that a guest vocalist will likely replace the frontman on the amended run later this year.

AC/DC's upcoming European tour, which is supposed to begin in Lisbon on May 7 and reach London by the summer, has not yet been moved, but it seems likely that the band will announce a guest vocalist for that too.

The last few years have not been good for AC/DC.

In September 2014, their founding member Malcolm Young left the band after confirming he had dementia.

This was followed by drummer Phil Rudd's exit in 2015. The 61-year-old was charged and later convicted of making threats to kill a former employee.
