Guns N' Roses booed after confusing Melbourne with Sydney at MCG concert

Guns N

Melbourne, 16 February 2017 (MIA) - Glam rock legends Guns N' Roses got off to a rough start at last night's MCG concert after the Melbourne crowd was greeted as "Sydney".

Thousands of people arrived hours before the gig was due to start and the crowd roared when the band finally hit the stage.

But the cheers turned to boos after guitar technician McBob forgot where he was.

The mistake could have been forgiven the last time the band performed in Melbourne in 2013, given the venue was the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

The three founding members - Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan - had not played together for Australian fans since the 1993 Use Your Illusion Tour.

Among the thousands of fans at last night's show were a married couple who walked down the aisle to November Rain, and a Catholic school attendee who had prayed in communion for Slash and Axl Rose to reunite.

Guns N' Roses will wrap up their Australian tour with concerts in Adelaide and Perth. sk/10:37
