Guns 'N' Roses were saved from a knife wielding fan this weekend.

The 'Paradise City' group played an intimate show on Valentine's Day (14.02.10) at the exclusive Nur Khan's Rose Bar Sessions event, held at New York's Gramercy Park Hotel.

The unidentified man was tackled by one of the guests, former Skid Row singer, Sebastian Bach, who spotted the weapon and promptly had the man thrown from the venue.

An eyewitness said: "The man walked in while Guns 'N' Roses were onstage and pulled out a knife and flicked the blade out.

"Sebastian, who was standing on a banquette said, 'Nobody is getting anywhere near my man Axl Rose with a knife,' and went after him.

"Security then immediately threw him out. The man appeared to be drunk. It was dealt with so quickly that none of the other guests or the band were aware of it."

The private concert saw a host of stars attend including The Strokes' Fabrizio Moretti and Albert Hammond Jr., Ryan Phillippe, Sophia Bush and 'The Wrestler' star Mickey Rourke.

Guns 'N' Roses played a two hour set for the 150 guests and finished at 3am before moving to a party upstairs, where they reportedly partied with a group of models until 6 am.
