AC/DC postpones concert at BB&T Center in Sunrise

AC/DC postpones Friday concert @thebbtcenter after doctors tell Brian Johnson to stop touring.

AC/DC on Monday announced they will postpone Friday’s concert at the BB&T Center in Sunrise after lead singer Brian Johnson was advised by doctors to stop touring to prevent total hearing loss.

The Sunrise show was among 10 affected performances on the band's  "Rock or Bust" world tour through April 4, when the band was scheduled to play New York’s Madison Square Garden.  

The announcement, made via promoter Live Nation,  stated that the band would make up the concerts later in the year, likely with a guest singer stepping in for Johnson, one of the most distinctive voices in rock 'n’ roll. Johnson, 68, has toured with AC/DC for more than 35 years, since joining the band after the death of Bon Scott. 

Tickets will be honored for the new dates, but refunds are available at point of purchase.

Other affected dates are Tuesday, March 8, in Atlanta;  March 14 in Greensboro, N.C.;  March 17 in Washington, D.C.;  March 20 in Detroit; March 23 in Columbus, Ohio; March 16 in Cleveland; March 29 in Buffalo and April 1 in Philadelphia.
