Despite a line-up change with Ozzy Osbourne sadly having to bow out due to his health, next month’s colossal Power Trip event is go – and AC/DC have started preparing themselves.

The rock legends will be heading to California with Judas Priest, plus Guns N’ Roses, Iron Maiden, Metallica and Tool from October 6 – 8 for their first live performance in seven years, and they’ve shared some new rehearsal audio footage, as well as confirming their line-up for the show.

The current touring iteration of AC/DC will consist of vocalist Brian Johnson, guitarists Angus and Stevie Young, plus bassist Cliff Williams – who is “coming out of retirement for the festival” – and Matt Laug on drums. The band haven’t stated where Phil Rudd is, but of course he did join AC/DC for 2020’s 4/5-rated POWER UP album.

“PWR UP for Power Trip!” they say. “Listen to the rehearsal of the boys powering up with Cliff Williams, who’s coming out of retirement for the festival and Matt Laug on drums.”
