Report: The Beach Boys Might Perform Donald Trump’s Inauguration
The Beach Boys are reportedly considering performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration.
According to Page Six, the California surfer rock band was approached about performing for the president-elect this January after Andrea Bocelli backed out of the gig because he received so many boycott threats from his fans.
“They have not made a decision,” a source close to the Beach Boys said.
In September, the band’s frontman Mike Love said they would be open to performing at the inauguration if Trump won.
“He’s been a friend for a long time,” Love said. “Does that mean I agree with everything he says? No. But if we were asked [to play his inauguration], I’m sure that we would.”
Bocelli and Garth Brooks both declined to perform at the inauguration because they feared repercussions.
“They both bowed to the pressure,” an insider told Page Six. “Their phones were blowing up, and they decided it just wasn’t worth it.” (RELATED: Bocelli Backs Out…)
