Watch Guns N’ Roses perform with Carrie Underwood in London

On the first of their two shows at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last night (July 1), Guns N’ Roses cast country pop superstar Carrie Underwood.

the 2005 american idol winner joined Axl Rose and co. twice during their 22 song set – first towards the end of the main performance to sing on ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’, then during the encore to close out the evening on ‘Paradise City’. It echoed Rose’s guest appearance on Underwood’s set at this year’s Stagecoach Festival in May, where the frontman joined her and her band to perform those same two songs.

Check out the fan-made footage of Underwood singing with Guns N’ Roses below:

Elsewhere on set, Guns N’ Roses played both original songs on this year’s “Hard Skool” EP – “Absurd” and the title track – and a quadrant of the covers that have long remained staples in their set lists: “Live And Let Die ‘ by Wings, ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ by The Stooges (for which bassist Duff McKagan took over the lead vocals), ‘Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door’ by Bob Dylan (mashed with the intro of Alice Cooper’s ‘Only Women Bleed’), and ‘Slither’ from Slash and McKagan’s own Velvet Revolver.

The show was not without technical difficulties. For starters, concertgoers queued for hours before they were even allowed to enter the stadium. The opening act, Gary Clark Jr, was set to perform at 4:30 PM, but some punters were still waiting to be let in at 6:30 PM.

Guns N Roses would take the stage just 15 minutes later, but according to a fan on Twitterthey didn’t come out until around 7:45 PM, and their set was therefore shortened† Seven songs on their set – during their performance of “Estranced” – the show was briefly interrupted due to sound problems.

The band will perform again tonight (July 2) at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. There is still a limited supply of tickets available to purchase – find them here.

Guns N’ Roses is touring Europe this summer. In the fall they move to South America and Mexico, to visit Australia and New Zealand at the end of the year. Tickets can be found here.

In June, the band played AC/DC’s ‘Back In Black’ for the first time at a concert in Spain. At that same concert, they played a cover of Jimmy Webb’s “Wichita Lineman” and gave their first performance of “Reckless Life” since 1993. During the encore, they played the “Appetite Of Destruction” version of “You’re Crazy” for the first since 1991.
