Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose has resumed his onstage relationship with country star Carrie Underwood. 

The pair first appeared together at the annual Stagecoach festival at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, last May, with Rose supplying vocals on Sweet Child O' Mine and Paradise City. Now Rose has made another cameo performance, during Underwood's Denim & Rhinestones show at the Arena in Los Angeles.

Underwood – a longtime Guns N' Roses fan who's been performing Welcome To The Jungle throughout the tour – brought Axl onstage during the LA show's encore, and the pair proceeded to skip merrily around the stage as they perform an extremely lively version of the Appetite For Destruction classic. At the climax. Underwood screams, "Axl Rose, everybody!", and the two singers embrace.

“I’ve been covering Guns N’ Roses my whole life, pretty much, and definitely onstage for the past 15 years at least," Underwood told Rolling Stone last year. "I had asked before if he would ever come sing, or if I could come to him somewhere. We had a couple almost maybes, where it almost maybe would have happened, but for various reasons, it wasn’t the right time."

Earlier today, Guns N' Roses were confirmed as one of the headliners of the 2023 Aftershock Festival. They'll perform on Sunday October 8, joining a lineup that also includes Avenged SevenfoldToolKorn. Incubus, Turnstile, Godsmack, Limp Bizkit, 311, Queens Of The Stone Age and Rancid.
