AC/DC's Brian Johnson told: Stop touring or risk deafness

AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson has been told to stop touring immediately or risk going deaf.

The Australian rock band have now postponed the remaining dates of their US tour because of the Gateshead-born singer's condition.

The band said doctors advised the 68-year-old Back In Black singer to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss.

The group's shows beginning on Thursday in Atlanta, Georgia, until April 4 in New York are being rescheduled for later in the year, probably with a guest vocalist.

AC/DC opened the most recent US leg of their Rock or Bust tour on February 2 in Tacoma, Washington.

The band are due to begin a European leg on May 7 in Lisbon, Portugal.
