Duff McKagan made a second surprised appearance with Guns N’ Roses over the weekend when he popped up on stage with the latest version of the band while making a tour stop in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

McKagan, who’s band Loaded was the opener on the bill both Friday (Seattle) and Saturday (Vancouver) nights, joined GN’R on stage for performances of the band’s classic hits ‘You Could Be Mine’ and ‘Civil War’ at Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver. McKagan also gave fans at Friday night’s show a taste of a GNR reunion when he joined the band for ‘You Could Be Mine’ in Seattle at the Key Arena.

Needless to say, the glimpse of McKagan back onstage along side the band’s lead singer and sole remaining original member of Guns N’ Roses was a thrill in itself. McKagan took to his Twitter page following the weekend shows to thank his fans and Guns N’ Roses for the exciting opportunity to entertain the masses.

“Thanks @axlrose,” McKagan wrote. “My friend….. A really great couple o nights. Thank you Seattle and Vancouver. And…..good f—in night!”

These recent pop-ups onstage with his former band wasn’t the first time McKagan surprised fans. Back in October of 2010, McKagan made worldwide headlines when he joined GN’R onstage for four songs during a concert in London, England. The show marked the first time McKagan had stepped foot on a stage with GN’R in 17 years.

With Guns N’ Roses being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next April in Cleveland, one can only hope this is the beginnings of a reunion of the band’s original lineup!
