Australian hard-rockers AC/DC have signed a deal to perform at Magnetic Hill in New Brunswick later this summer, CTV News reported Tuesday.

Quoting unnamed sources in the concert industry, CTV said the concert will be held at the outdoor venue near Moncton on Aug. 6.

No official announcement had been made as of yesterday.

Municipal officials in Moncton would not confirm the report.

The legendary rock band is currently in the middle of its Black Ice world tour.

Last year, the band had the bestselling album of the year in Canada with Black Ice, their first disc in eight years, which sold 341,000 units.

The world tour first rolled into Canada on Nov. 7, when the 35-year-old band played before a soldout crowd of 45,000 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.

The band members include guitarist Angus Young, his brother and rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, bass player Cliff Williams, drummer Phil Rudd and singer Brian Johnson. All are in their 50s, with the exception of Johnson, who is 61.

The only other Canadian dates were Nov. 28 at GM Place in Vancouver, where Black Ice was recorded at The Warehouse Studio, and the Rogers Centre for another show Jan. 9.
