The Australian rock band have now postponed the remaining dates of their US tour because of the Gateshead-born singer's condition.

The band said doctors advised the 68-year-old Back In Black singer to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss.

The group's shows beginning on Thursday in Atlanta, Georgia, until April 4 in New York are being rescheduled for later in the year, probably with a guest vocalist.

AC/DC opened the most recent US leg of their Rock or Bust tour on February 2 in Tacoma, Washington.

The band are due to begin a European leg on May 7 in Lisbon, Portugal.
