Rock band AC/DC will be the first band to perform at the former Olympic Stadium following its re-vamp.

The Australian band, whose hits include Thunderstruck and Highway to Hell, will perform in a concert there as part of their 2016 European "Rock or Bust" tour.

The concert will be the first major event to be held at the former Olympic Stadium at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park following extensive work to transform the venue.

Work on the stadium, to turn it into a year round multi-use venue, includes installing the largest roof of its kind in the world, retractable seating and more.

Other notable events on the 2016 calendar include Usain Bolt at the Anniversary Games, and the first match for West Ham United in their newly renovated home.
