AC/DC have confirmed their first world tour in eight years, an 18-month jaunt set to kick off this October.

The tour will be in support of the band’s new album, set to also be released this autumn.

The record, rumoured to be titled ‘Black Ice’, is the band’s first since 2000’s ‘Stiff Upper Lip’ and in the US will only be available through Walmart stores.

AC/DC recently agreed to let their songs be included on game ‘Rock Band 2’.
