Guns N’ Roses concluded their Australia tour in style yesterday (March 20). The hard rock legends asked members of both opening acts — ZZ Top and Rose Tattoo — to join them on stage during their main set. The concert took place at the Brisbane Entertainment Center in Brisbane.

Billy Gibbons sat in with the Gunners for a cover of Bob Dylan‘s ‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.’ Guns N’ Roses recorded the song in 1990 for the soundtrack to ‘Days of Thunder,’ and re-released it a year later on ‘Use Your Illusion II.’ Their version reached No. 18 on the Mainstream Rock charts.

Earlier in the evening, Rose Tattoo’s Angry Anderson came on for the Australian rock legends’ song ‘Nice Boys.’ Guns N’ Roses recorded ‘Nice Boys’ on their 1988 album ‘Lies.’ According to Blabbermouth, Rose Tattoo opened up for Guns N’ Roses on the Australian leg of the ‘Use Your Illusion’ tour.

As of now, video of Gibbons playing has not surfaced, but the band did tweet several pictures taken by fans of Gibbons onstage with them, including the one above. However, we do have the below clip of ‘Nice Boys.’
