AC/DC Unveils New Live Drummer, Posts First Rehearsal Footage In Years


Last Updated on 10:46 AM by Giorgos Tsekas

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.
