AC/DC have hired a Formula One fitness guru in order to get into shape ahead of their forthcoming world tour.


The band's dates in support of new album 'Black Ice' begin in the US at the end of this month and are scheduled to end in Birmingham England next April.

Singer Brian Johnson told Absolute Radio that he and guitarist Angus Young had both begun a fitness regime.

"I'm getting a Formula One guy in. A fitness guy, he's trying to get me whipped into shape and size. [The show is] two-and-a-bit hours and there's no time for recovery,” he said.

AC/DC's new album was released this week. For the latest ticket information, check out the Gigwise Gig Guide.
