Legendary rock outfit AC/DC will unveil their first live album in 20 years, "AC/DC Live at River Plate," later this year.

Recorded in Buenos Aires in 2009 as part of the band's extensive "Black Ice World Tour," the 19-track collection spans the group's discography, including hits like "Back In Black," "You Shook Me All Night Long" and "Thunderstruck."

The effort, which hits shelves Nov. 20, comes one year after the release of the "AC/DC Live at River Plate" DVD, which showcases the three nights of music, as well as footage of the stage production and the fanfare surrounding the band's arrival in Argentina.

Along with the live disc, fans can also purchase a three-disc red vinyl package or a two-CD set featuring several covers and a 24-page booklet.

Pre-orders for the live album are available now via the band's website.

AC/DC spent nearly two years on the "Black Ice World Tour," which visited 108 cities in 28 countries, according to the band's website, and won Pollstar's Major Tour of the Year Award in 2009. The trek supported the late 2008 release of "Black Ice," the group's multi-platinum effort, which topped the charts in 23 countries, including the U.S. and the band's native Australia.
