In the middle of performing “Paradise City” — with surprise guest Dave Grohl — Guns N’ Roses apparently had the power pulled on them due to a 10 p.m. curfew at California’s BottleRock Napa Valley.
Guns N’ Roses, one of the headliners on Saturday’s (Sept. 4) extensive lineup at the festival, continued to power through their hit with Grohl on guitar, despite the speakers suddenly going off.
In video footage from the show, the audience can be heard providing an assist by belting out the song along with Axl Rose, before the frontman throws his mic out into the crowd.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the festival, which takes place at the Napa Valley Expo, has a strict curfew as it’s located in a residential area.
In fact, in previous years, Grohl’s own band had festival organizers pulling the plug when Foo Fighters broke the curfew, and the same thing happened to Neil Young.
Billboard reached out to a representative for BottleRock for comment about Guns N’ Roses’ set this weekend.
The three-day music, wine, craft brew and culinary festival was set for the Napa Valley Expo on Sept. 3-5.
