LOS ANGELES (AP) — AC/DC are postponing the remaining dates of their U.S. tour because of lead singer Brian Johnson’s possible hearing loss.

The band says in a statement that doctors have advised the “Back in Black” singer to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss.

The group’s shows beginning Thursday in Atlanta through April 4 in New York are being rescheduled for later in the year — likely with a guest vocalist.

On Ticketmaster’s website, it has been confirmed that the Columbus show, scheduled for March 23, has been postponed, but it says a rescheduled date is to be announced.

Johnson joined AC/DC in 1980 after the death of the band’s original singer Bon Scott, according to CNN.
