The North American leg of Guns N’ Roses’ 2023 tour kicked off over the weekend in Moncton, Canada, with country superstar Carrie Underwood as the opening act. You can see some great photos from the show below.
Underwood, who’s a self-proclaimed massive Guns N’ Roses fan, played a set full of rock ‘n’ roll covers, as well as some of the more guitar-driven tracks from her own catalog. The country singer tackled songs by Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, i-Ten, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Motorhead during her set (check them out here), and there seemed to have been a positive reaction to her performance from the rock band’s fans.
“Carrie Underwood opening for Guns N’ Roses in Moncton covering ‘The Ace of Spades’ something I never thought I’d see! Fabulous she killed it,” one person wrote on social media.
“Waiting for guns but Carrie Underwood blew it out of the water!!! Wow great show carrie!” another praised.
Guns N’ Roses took the stage later in the evening and played a 28-song set [via Setlist.fm], and Underwood joined them onstage during “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and “Paradise City.” It’s rumored that they’ll be releasing a new song called “Perhaps” this Friday (Aug. 11), according to Blabbermouth. The group soundchecked the song back in June before their show in Tel Aviv, but they’ve yet to perform it.
