No easy way to do that unless you have a very good understanding of guitar playing and know your way around the neck. If you can recognize chord shapes then you can watch and see which chords the guitarist is playing and then by knowing the three basic chords in each key you can figure out the key of the song. If the guitarist is doing some lead runs you might get a slight clue by seeing where the run starts in reference to the notes on the low E string. It takes a lot of work on the guitar to get to that point - Been there done that. The easiest method as others have said is just ask one of the other players.
