But what truly sent shockwaves through the crowd were her rock-infused renditions that left fans both astonished and exhilarated.
Known for her undeniable vocal prowess and magnetic stage presence, Underwood didn’t just perform rock covers – she embraced them with a fervor that ignited the atmosphere. As the opening act for none other than the legendary GUNS N’ ROSES, Underwood effortlessly slipped into the hard rock realm, delivering her unique twists on iconic hits that have shaped the music landscape.
Among the unforgettable highlights of her 18-song concert were her electrifying versions of rock classics.

With undeniable charisma, she belted out Pat Benatar‘s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot,” infusing it with her own fiery determination.
But that wasn’t the end of it. Underwood ventured even deeper into the rock vault, taking on THE ROLLING STONES‘ soul-stirring “Wild Horses,” capturing the essence of a timeless anthem. The arena resonated with emotion as she soulfully crooned HEART‘s “Alone,” her voice intertwining with the music, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of everyone in attendance.
And just when you thought the surprises were over, Underwood unleashed a whirlwind of sound with her high-octane rendition of LED ZEPPELIN‘s “Rock And Roll.” The air was charged with electricity as she commanded the stage, showcasing her unmatched vocal range and a magnetic stage presence that left the audience breathless.
Yet, the true pinnacle of the night’s astonishments came in the form of a heart-pounding rendition of MOTÖRHEAD‘s timeless classic “Ace Of Spades.” This wasn’t the first time Underwood had harnessed the power of this song – it had already been her hype anthem, setting the tone for her headlining “Denim & Rhinestones” tour earlier in the year. The fact that she seamlessly transitioned from a country superstar to a rock ‘n’ roll maven is a testament to her musical versatility and unwavering passion.
