Carrie Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher seem to have a great marriage, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t above bailing on him to see an awesome concert.
“Our tour wrapped and we were nowhere near Las Vegas. So, naturally, I said let’s go to Las Vegas with the band and go see G ‘N R [Guns ‘N Roses] play ’cause it’s kind of a lifelong dream of mine I never thought would happen and couldn’t waste that opportunity,” she said. “So, I abandoned my husband, abandoned my two children, went to Vegas, saw Guns ‘N Roses.”
Underwood said that the show was amazing, partially because she was down with the people not in a box.
“Usually when I go to concerts I’m in a box to the side, ya know, which is great, it has its perks, there’s usually a bathroom in there and it’s kind of awesome. But, you miss the energy of the crowd and because we were in Vegas we were kind of just in there with everybody else,” Underwood told Fallon. “And it was absolutely incredible because you could feel everybody, everybody screaming, I was screaming. I was like, ‘I’m never gonna see none of these people ever again. I’m gonna act like a fool.’ And it was amazing.”
After the concert, Underwood even got to meet Axel Rose.
“I do always say, it’s hard when you kind of meet your heroes because I do consider him [Rose] to be somebody who kind of taught me how to sing because I just loved how he could do different things with his voice,” she said. “And if I meet him and he’s not everything I want him to be, but he was.”
This isn’t the first time she’s talked about how much she loved that show. At the County Radio Seminar in February she called it the “best night of my life.”
“I love concerts, I love them so much. When I go now, I’m stuck in a box somewhere and I can’t feel that energy,” she said at the time. “[For Guns ‘N Roses] we were in the audience and I was losing my mind and I didn’t give a crap what anyone else thought. It was amazing.”
