Singer encores with track in Mexico

Feist has covered Guns N’ Roses classic track ‘November Rain’ in concert – scroll down to see a clip of the performance.

The singer was performing in Mexico City and played the track as part of her encore. She even enlisted a Slash lookalike to play the famous solo in the track. The footage also shows Feist and a friend demolishing a traditional pinata during the climax of the song.

Feist is set to head to the UK to play two shows in March of this year. The singer, who released her fourth studio album ‘Metals’ in October, will play London‘s Royal Albert Hall on March 25 and Manchester‘s O2 Apollo the following night (26).


The singer also announced plans to collaborate with Mastodon.

The two acts will work together for Record Store Day and will cover each other’s songs for a split seven-inch release, available on April 21 at selected independent record stores.

The acts met in October on Later… With Jools Holland, reports The Guardian. Speaking to HitFix, Feist said of their meeting: “Brent [Hinds of Mastodon] and I were nodding at each other, and he’s like, ‘nice riff,’ and I’m like ‘nice tone’.”

“So backstage I’m thinking about letting these two worlds collide, how they should collide, so I’m like, ‘how about ‘Metals’ meeting metal?’ Brent was like: ‘Well, I do like that ‘The Bad In Each Other’ song. I could see that.’ Maybe now I will look into learning to cover ‘Oblivion’, or anything off [The Hunter]. That album’s amazing.”
