I would need your english language help on one small thing...

I was watching the "on-tour" movie the other day and toward the beginning, while Elvis is getting ready to go on stage, I just didn't understand the meaning of this sentence from Elvis:

"And somebody could walk up to me and say “Hey, your head just exploded. I wouldn't hear it."

English is not my main language so I just can't understand what he is trying to say. Can somebody help?

It either means that Elvis is concentrating on nothing but his show or he has tremendous hearing loss.

I've never figured out for sure which one.
