Watch Axl Rose and Carrie Underwood Sing Two Guns N’ Roses Songs
Axl Rose joined Carrie Underwood last night at the Stagecoach Festival to sing two Guns N’ Roses songs.
You can see a fan-shot video of their performance below.
“Welcome to the best night of my life!” the country star and longtime GN’R fan told the crowd after performing the first verse of “Sweet Child O’ Mine” herself. “Never mind Axl Rose!”
Dressed in a black vest and t-shirt, Rose handled most of the rest of the song on her own, with the two singers teaming up for the “Where Do We Go Now?” section.
As soon as “Sweet Child O’ Mine” was finished, the Underwood band, anchored by lead guitarist Ed Eason, kicked off the opening chords of “Paradise City.” “You thought we were done? Underwood asked the crowd, before she and Rose exchanged voices for a second appetite for destruction song.
Underwood’s GNR fandom has become well established over the years, as she has covered “Sweet Child O’ Mine”, “Paradise City”, “November Rain” and “Patience” in concert. In 2020, she with humor says Jimmy Fallon about “dropping out” of her husband and children to go see Guns N’ Roses in concert immediately after finishing one of her own tours. “It’s hard when you meet your heroes, you know, because I consider [Axl] to be someone who taught me to sing. …and I was like, ‘What if I meet him and he’s not everything I want him to be?’ But he was, he was super cool and nice.”
Rose is set to return to the stage with her Guns N’ Roses bandmates on May 21 at the Welcome to Rockville festival in Daytona Beach. The band will spend much of June and July touring Europe, then visit South America, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand in the fall.
