1000 musicians have covered the Guns N' Roses hard-rock anthem Paradise City in Paris.

Featuring musicians from 25 countries, the performance took place at Stade de France, as part of artist collective Rockin 1000's eighth birthday celebration concert. 

Self-described as "the biggest rock band on Earth", Rockin' 1000 stage enormous collaborative concerts that celebrate the connectivity and community of live music performance.  The Paris event was reportedly attended by over 50,000 people

The cover of Paradise City amplifies the widescreen feel of the already stadium-sized anthem, creating a vision of musical unity, joy and noise that embodies the point of Rockin' 1000. Watch the Paradise City cover below.

Earlier this year, Rockin' 1000 made the news after their performance of Foo Fighters My Hero went viral. A tribute to Taylor Hawkins, that performance featured Fever 333 drummer Aric Improta, rocking out alongside 999 other musicians in an emotional moment.

Paradise City appears on Guns N' Roses' 1987 debut full-length Appetite For Destruction. It is also finding favour with new audiences lately, after making an appearance on the soundtrack for Thor: Love and Thunder.  One of the band's biggest hits, it is a near certainty to make the setlist for Guns N' Roses upcoming stadium tour of Australia.  

Supports for that tour were announced this week, with Aussie punk favourites The Chats and Cosmic Psychos securing the honour of warming the stage for one of the biggest bands on earth.
