AC/DC singer Brian Johnson says he is not retiring from music after doctors told him that he risks substantial hearing loss if he continues to perform in large arenas and stadiums.

Johnson said in a statement that he intends to continue to record in studios and will continue treatment to improve his hearing.

The Back In Black singer will be replaced by Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose for the Rock or Bust world tour beginning on May 7 in Lisbon.

Johnson said he was "personally crushed" at the news that he could no longer perform and feels terrible for disappointing fans.

But he said his attitude is optimistic and he is hoping that his hearing will improve enough for him to return to live performances.
