The Pretenders singer played harmonica to Guns N’ Roses’ “Bad Obsession” at their concert in Boston.
The tour of Guns N’ Roses this summer has been full of surprises. The setlist changes every evening, the concerts can reach 3h30, “Perhaps” was played for the first time and many guests are invited, like Carrie Underwood or Andrew Dice Clay. We can now add Chrissie Hynde. Monday August 21, the singer of The Pretenders joined the group of Axl Rose at Fenway Park (Boston) to play the harmonica on “Bad Obsession”.
The bluesy track, from Use Your Illusion Ihas become an obligatory passage of the concerts of Guns N’ Roses, in second position, after the classic opening with “It’s So Easy”. During the concert in Boston, Chrissie Hynde makes an appearance, in black leather knee-high boots, a harmonica in hand, to make this interpretation of “Bad Obsession” particularly memorable. While Axl Rose wanders around the stage, the singer of The Pretenders dances and moves near drummer Frank Ferrer’s stage.
The Pretenders, who are releasing their next album, Relentless, on September 15, opened for the concert in Boston and will do the same in Chicago on Thursday. In the meantime, they will perform intimate club concerts. On the French side, the British group will give two concerts at La Maroquinerie (Paris), on September 19 and 20. These dates are sold out.
Among other guests, Carrie Underwood regularly shared the stage with Axl Rose, while making foot calls to rock fans in her setlist, with “Alone” by Heart and “Ace of Spades” by Motörhead.
Last Friday, Guns N’ Roses have released a new track, “Perhaps“, a track carried by his piano parts in which Axl Rose talks about someone he rejected. After first performing it live in Pittsburgh that night, the band performed it in Boston as well.
