AC/DC have announced plans for a tour to celebrate their 40th anniversary.

The Highway To Hell rockers also revealed they have begun work on their first new album since 2008's Black Ice, according to Rolling Stone.

Frontman Brian Johnson told Florida radio station Gater 98.7: "Its been 40 years of the band's existence. So I think we're gonna try to do 40 gigs, 40 shows, to thank the fans for their undying loyalty. I mean, honestly, our fans are just the best in the world, and we appreciate every one of them. So, like I said, we'll have to go out, even though we're getting a bit long in the tooth. You know what? It's been four years, and I'm really looking forward to it."

Brian also revealed the band would be heading to a Vancouver studio in May to record their 16th studio album.

He will be joined by current members Angus Young, Malcolm Young, Phil Rudd and Cliff Williams.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
