On Sept. 4, Guns N Roses’ BottleRock set in Napa Valley was peaking with their hit “Paradise City” – complete with a sit-in by Dave Grohl – when their onstage power was cut.
The venue’s reasoning was that the band had run over the event’s strict 10 p.m. curfew (BottleRock is nestled in a residential area of Napa Valley).
As some may recall, Neil Young suffered a similar fate at BottleRock 2019, getting the power cut on him in the midst of “Rockin’ in the Free World.”
And, just like Young’s ill-fated set, Guns N Roses fans made the best of a bad situation and sang the end of “Paradise City” sans power.
Watch what went down via YouTuber ConcertPipeline below – the power gets cut around the 3-minute mark:
