AC/DC Pull the Plug on Remaining U.S. Tour Dates; Doctors Tell Vocalist Brian Johnson”To Stop Touring Immediately or Risk Total Hearing Loss”
Welp, no two ways about it: this fucking sucks.
On their website, the band promises to reschedule the remaining shows — albeit “likely with a guest vocalist.”
There was already a strong chance that this was going to be AC/DC’s final tour, what with guitarist Malcolm Young forced to leave the band as the result of dementia. This really feels like the end of AC/DC.
Johnson, of course, was not the band’s original vocalist — that would be one Mr. Bon Scott — but that just makes the fact that his tenure in the band lasted so long, and was so successful, all the more impressive. It’s hard to make things work with a new singer.
Here’s to Brian Johnson: we love ya, ya gravelly-voiced bastard.
