AC/DC just posted rehearsal footage for their upcoming headlining slot at the Power Trip festival, and with some revelations about their lineup. AC/DC notes that bassist Cliff Williams has come out of retirement to play the show, and that drummer Matt Haug will replace Phil Rudd.

No word on if Rudd is permanently out of the band, as he did rejoin AC/DC in 2020 for their latest record Power Up. Rudd was originally let go from AC/DC in 2015 when he was found guilty of threatening to kill someone and drug possession. Rudd was sentenced to eight months of house arrest by a New Zealand court, and was replaced by former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade.

Williams‘ story is far less dramatic. Dude retired from the road in 2016 after AC/DC‘s tour wrapped up, rejoined the band in 2020 for the recording and promotion of Power Up, and is now un-retiring from live shows. Simple as that.

AC/DC will play the October 7 date of Power Trip alongside Judas Priest, who has since taken the place of Ozzy Osbourne. Power Trip will happen between October 6 and 8 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA, and will feature fellow headliners Metallica, Tool, Iron Maiden, and Guns N’ Roses. Tickets are available here.
