AC/DC have postponed their 10 remaining U.S. dates, citing a scary medical issue for frontman Brian Johnson. He has apparently been “advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss,” according to a news release. The band was set to bring their “Rock or Bust” tour to Atlanta on Tuesday (March 8).

The same release says that dates through early April, when AC/DC was set to play Madison Square Garden in New York City, “will be made up later in the year, likely with a guest vocalist.” More information on these rescheduled shows is forthcoming. Current tickets will be honored for these postponed dates; ticket prices will be also be refunded at the point of purchase. A complete list of postponed dates is below.

Johnson’s health issue continues a run of very bad luck for AC/DC that includes the retirement of founding member Malcolm Young, who was diagnosed with dementia, and a protracted legal battle that sidelined long-time drummer Phil Rudd. AC/DC replaced Malcolm with nephew Stevie Young, and then brought back former member Chris Slade.
