Australian hard rock veterans AC/DC have mapped out the routing of a spring tour of North America in support of their most recent Elektra album "Stiff Upper Lip." Although no venue or on-sale information has been confirmed, the trek will begin March 18 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and is set to run through May 5 in Philadelphia. The group is currently on tour in Australia and Japan.

Released last February, "Stiff Upper Lip," is the band's first new studio album since 1995. The George Young-produced set peaked at No. 7 on The Billboard 200 in March, while the title track hit No. 1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

In conjunction with the ongoing dates, EMI Australia has issued a special tour edition of the album, featuring a bonus CD with five live tracks, a non-album b-side, and three multimedia videos. A separate five song mini-CD has also been released in Japan, sporting the album's title track as well as three live cuts.
