Early this morning news surfaced out of camp AC/DC that the band have been forced to reschedule 10 upcoming US shows. According to a press release, the reason behind this is in order to save frontman Brian Johnson’s deteriorating hearing.

In order to prevent any permanent deafness, the band will continue touring later this year with a “guest vocalist” as Johnson recovers and most likely retires from touring. The following AC/DC shows will be rescheduled:

March 8         Atlanta, GA          Philips Arena
March 11       Ft. Lauderdale, FL       BB&T Center
March 14       Greensboro, NC        Greensboro Coliseum
March 17       Washington, DC        Verizon Center
March 20       Detroit, MI            The Palace
March 23       Columbus, OH          Nationwide Arena
March 26       Cleveland, OH          Quicken Loans Arena
March 29       Buffalo, NY             First Niagara Center
April 1         Philadelphia, PA        Wells Fargo Center
April 4         New York, NY           Madison Square Garden

AC/DC’s last release came in 2014, when the rock quartet released Rock or Bust.
