Guns N’ Roses’ headline show this Saturday at the BottleRock festival in Napa, CA was cut short after the band went past the event’s strict curfew (10 pm.).

The group was in the middle of rocking through “Paradise City” with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) when the power was shut off by festival organizers.

The band played a 21 song set after exiting the stage to return for an encore with notable guests. First in the encore the band performed “Patience” with pop star P!nk and then on the night’s finale the band was supposed to perform “Paradise City” with Dave Grohl but the song was approximately three minutes in when the power was cut.

Despite the power getting cut the band continued and finished the set with audience singing along to the song and helping the band out. You can find a video of the last song at the end of the article.
