Hard rock legends AC/DC were formed in Sydney in 1973

Rock band AC/DC have added a pair of UK stadium dates to their current world tour after selling out four concerts in London, Manchester and Birmingham.

The Australian rockers will perform at Wembley Stadium in London on 26 June.

After crossing over to Ireland for a previously announced concert in Dublin, they will then travel up to Glasgow to play Hampden Park on 30 June.

AC/DC's tour began in October in the US. The band are currently in Texas to play dates in San Antonio and Houston.

The band released Black Ice, their first studio album in eight years, in October.

The album has topped the charts in 29 countries, selling more than six million copies worldwide.

Rock N Roll Train, the first single released from it, has been nominated for a Grammy award in the category of best rock performance by a duo or group with vocals.

The European leg of the Black Ice Tour begins in Oslo in February and reaches the UK in April.

AC/DC's last world tour coincided with the release of their last studio album, Stiff Upper Lip, in 2000.
