Carrie Underwood Opens For Guns N’ Roses with Rockin’ Live Debuts

Carrie Underwood kicked off her first of three opening engagements with Guns ‘N Roses Saturday night in Canada with a full set of her gems and three covers she’d never done before.

The Season four American Idol winner has had an adorable fascination with hard Guns dating back to 2006 when she covered “Patience” and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” back to back in Indianapolis.

Since then she’s covered Motley Crue, Ozzy, and Aerosmith. And when she first sang with Axl she called it “the greatest night of my life.”

At the Croix-Bleue Madavie Stadium in New Brunswick, Underwood warmed up the Guns N’ Roses audience with a set that begun with a rockin cover of Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation,”

What followed were a collection of Carrie’s hits and even more rock covers originally by Pat Benatar, Heart, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and Motörhead.

A bit of a countrified version of the Stone’s hit.

UCarrie sings the Motörhead classic, “Ace of Spades” to Canadians who don’t seem to realize how special this is.

Carrie’s versions of “Hit Me With Your Best Shot,” “Wild Horses,” and  “Rock & Roll” were all live debuts for her.

Hopefully they’ll remain in her set the next two outings she’ll be opening for the LA bad boys.

Speaking of, during their set, the country superstar joined Guns on “Sweet Child…” and “Paradise City.” Full circle since Axl sang with Carrie on both of those tunes last year when she headlined Stagecoach.

“Paradise City,” is nothing new for Carrie. She’s covered it 30 times beginning in 2008, so it’s a good bet she will rock it again on the two other dates she has with Axl, Slash, Duff and the boys. Tickets are available on her website.

Will Carrie and Guns do a proper co-headlining tour together? Hopefully but if it happens it won’t be this year. Carrie has a residency booked in Vegas for the second half of 2023.

Bravo to the Canadian fan who picked this up!
