No-nonsense rock and grown men in shorts...

Veteran rockers AC/DC have announced they will play five dates in the UK at the end of this year.

The shows, kicking off in Birmingham on November 28 and rounding up in London on December 4, will be their first in the UK since their ‘Ballbreaker’ tour of 1996.

AC/DC released new album ‘Stiff Upper Lip’ earlier this year and have recently been touring the record throughout the US and Europe. Former Guns ‘N’ Roses guitar hero Slash has been supporting them during US dates.

The five-date UK tour is as follows: Birmingham NEC (November 28) Sheffield Arena (30) Manchester MEN Arena (1) Glasgow SE&CC (2) London Wembley Arena (4)
