In the midst of their Not In This Lifetime world tour, Guns N’ Roses introduced themselves to the wrong crowd in Australia.
Longtime guitar tech Michael “McBob” Mayhue mistakenly referenced Sydney when introducing the band to their Melbourne audience. “You must have made a wrong turn,” said the janitor from Spinal Tap.
Melbourne and Sydney, the two largest cities in Australia, have a longstanding rivalry. While audible boos can be heard from the crowd, fans quickly forget about the flub as the group delivers a scorching performance of “It’s So Easy.”
The band later took to Twitter to apologize for the slip up, pointing out that McBob hasn’t made a mistake in nearly 30 years MC duties.
