During an appearance on “The Howard Stern Show” last year, Johnson denied that his hearing loss was a result of playing with his bandmates. He said: “I’ve got hearing loss in my left ear. [But] I didn’t get it from music. I got it from sitting in a racecar [for] too long without earplugs.
“I heard my eardrum burst because I forgot to put my plugs in under my helmet. That’s how it happened.
“Music had nothing to do with it … I was dizzy, my middle ear had gone, and I took my helmet off and there was blood coming out and I’d burst my eardrum.”
AC/DC’s latest leg of U.S. dates started February 2 in Tacoma, Washington.
The band’s 2015 tour sold 2.31 million tickets for a total of $180 million in gross sales.
