He could probably just use a microphone stand. But then again, that's not what AC/DC fans have come to expect when they see singer Brian Johnson stalking a stage.

So with wrist surgery now on his itinerary for February, Johnson has decided to call off his previously planned 10-date solo tour taking place that same month in support of his book 'Rockers and Rollers: A Full-Throttle Memoir.'

Billed as "a full-throttle evening of stories and music," Johnson's U.S. tour was scheduled to begin Feb. 7 in Knoxville, Tenn., with guitarist Scotti Hill and bassist Rachel Bolan from Skid Row by his side.

It's not known which of Johnson's wrists — or if both — need to be repaired, or the type of injury that has made the operation necessary. But perhaps it has something to do with the rigors associated with his auto-racing hobby. Regardless, Johnson will get in at least one last good ride prior to his procedure when he participates in the Rolex 24 at Daytona race, scheduled for Jan. 28 and 29 at Florida's Daytona International Speedway.
