Guns N' Roses were joined onstage in Las Vegas by Izzy Stradlin over the weekend (November 24) - scroll down to watch fan-filmed footage on the gig.

The band were performing as part of their month-long residency at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Vegas when Stradlin, a founder member of the group, got up onto the stage to play '14 Years' with Axl Rose. Frontman Rose is the only original Guns N' Roses member still playing with the group following the departures of Slash, Duff McKagan and Stradlin. Stradlin has since performed numerous times with Guns N' Roses in recent years but is no longer an official member of the group.

Introducing the guitarist to the stage, Axl Rose is heard saying "I'm still a douchebag. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr Izzy Stradlin".

Earlier this year, The Hard Rock Hotel was forced to clean up the promotional artwork chosen by the band to promote their residency as it featured an image of a robot who had just sexually assaulted a woman.

The artwork image used was originally meant to be on the cover of the band's 1987 album 'Appetite for Destruction', but ended up on the inner sleeve. The casino released a statement which said: "Hard Rock Hotel & Casino regrets that the Guns N' Roses advertising for their current shows has offended any member of the community. The resort has decided to further modify the art and began the process of changing the materials."

Hard Rock International added: "Hard Rock International does not condone the advertisement or any depictions of sexual violence."
