Andrea Bocelli Backs Out Of Performing At Donald Trump’s Inauguration After Backlash
Andrea Bocelli has backed out of performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration after he received backlash from his fans.
Despite the rumors that no celebrities wanted to perform at his inauguration, the president-elect reportedly personally approached the blind Italian singer, who originally accepted. Now, according to Page Six, he has changed his mind.
“Bocelli said there was no way he’d take the gig,” a source told Page Six. “He was ‘getting too much heat’ and he said no.”
Another source told Page Six that it was Trump’s idea for Bocelli to back out. (RELATED: Andrea Bocelli To Perform At Donald Trump’s Inauguration)
“Trump suggested to Bocelli he not participate because of the backlash. It’s sad people on the left kept him from performing on a historic day.”
Fans threatened to “Boycott Bocelli” after they heard he was planning to perform at Trump’s inauguration.
