Guns N’ Roses brought out a surprise guest on Saturday at the BottleRock Festival in Napa Valley, California. During their set, they enlisted the help of Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl to perform “Paradise City” with them. It was the final song of the band’s headlining set. Unfortunately for all the attendees, the organizers had to pull the plug halfway through because of a strict curfew.
After the second chorus, power was cut but GnR and Grohl continued to play as if nothing’s out of the ordinary. There was no amplification, but the crowd sang along with Axl Rose and also booed the organizers. GnR somehow managed to finish their set with the help of fans, of course. Watch what happened below.
This wasn’t the first time it happened at BottleRock. Neil Young and the Cure were also cut off mid-performance after their songs went beyond the 10PM curfew. Even Foo Fighters broke the curfew a few years ago and their final song was also cut.
Meanwhile, this wasn’t the first time Grohl teamed up with GnR. He famously lent his throne to Rose in 2016 when the latter broke his foot. Grohl also previously played “Paradise City” with GnR in Tulsa in 2017.
