Phil Rudd’s charge of trying to procure murder has now been dropped due to lack of evidence, but the AC/DC drummer is still facing, while he will still face the charge of threatening to kill.

Meanwhile the band have now posted an official statement, saying that Rudd’s court proceedings won’t affect their upcoming tour or album. Posting on their official website the band said:

"We've only become aware of Phil's arrest as the news was breaking. We have no further comment.

"Phil's absence will not affect the release of our new album Rock or Bust and upcoming tour next year."

The star’s lawyer Paul Mabey QC explained: "Mr Rudd will defend the charge of threatening to kill. Charges relating to any personal possession of drugs are minor.”

Court documents suggested that he was accused of attempting to hire a person to kill two people between 25 September and 26 September.
