BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A group of 10 tour dates on the U.S. part of AC/DC’s “Rock or Bust” concert have been postponed due to unfortunate medical news for the group’s lead singer.

Doctors have informed Brian Johnson if he continues to tour, he risks total hearing loss. Upcoming concerts in March through April will be postponed and later rescheduled, likely with a fill-in vocalist.

Buffalo’s performance in the First Niagara Center is one of the 10 dates which will likely be rescheduled. The March 29 concert’s new date hasn’t yet been released.

Ticket holders for the concert can keep their tickets handy, or return them for a refund. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
