Brian Johnson’s Official Statement On AC/DC Outcome

For the past couple of days, ACDC Fans around the world have been both lamenting and celebrating the inclusion of Guns ‘N Roses singer Axl Rose after it was announced that Brian Johnson would be stepping aside due to potential complete hearing loss. It was news that struck all of us rather hard but like I said, some were calling this the end of the band as we know it while others were excited to find the chance to see Axl Rose singing these classic tunes. Earlier today, Brian Johnson released a full official statement on the matter and I have shared it with you below.

As many AC/DC fans know, the remaining shows for the 2016 AC/DC Rock or Bust World Tour, including 10 postponed U.S. shows, are being rescheduled with a guest singer. I want personally to explain the reason because I don’t believe the earlier press releases sufficiently set out what I wanted to say to our fans or the way in which I thought it should be presented.

On March 7th, after a series of examinations by leading physicians in the field of hearing loss, I was advised that if I continue to perform at large venues, I risked total deafness. While I was horrified at the reality of the news that day, I had for a time become aware that my partial hearing loss was beginning to interfere with my performance on stage. I was having difficulty hearing the guitars on stage and because I was not able to hear the other musicians clearly, I feared the quality of my performance could be compromised. In all honesty this was something I could not in good conscience allow. Our fans deserve my performance to be at the highest level, and if for any reason I can’t deliver that level of performance I will not disappoint our fans or embarrass the other members of AC/DC. I am not a quitter and I like to finish what I start, nevertheless, the doctors made it clear to me and my bandmates that I had no choice but to stop performing on stage for the remaining shows and possibly beyond. That was the darkest day of my professional life.
