Watch the moment the band were booed for mixing up their Australian cities at Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Guns N' Roses have apologised after shouting out the wrong city at their Australian gig.
The Paradise City Rockers played Melbourne Cricket Ground, but unfortunately before they took to the stage, their guitar tech-come-announcer McBob shouted out: "Sydney!"

The band were also an hour late, which McBob explains is because they were "stuck in traffic".
Luckily, the Sweet Child O' Mine Rockers went on to play a stomping set, but took to Twitter after to apologise for the mix-up, telling their fans , suggesting McBob made the error after 30 years of working with them.
