Back to the drawing board!
Donald Trump has been having an unprecedented amount of trouble booking musical acts for his upcoming inauguration.
But now, it looks like even the B Street Band is bowing out of the ceremony!
After getting heat for their booking at the Garden State Inaugural Gala, the famous Springsteen cover band is dropping out of Trump’s swear-in festivity.
The group made the decision not from receiving public backlash, but as to not disrespect the Boss himself — as the Born in the U.S.A. singer has made his thoughts clear on the incoming POTUS.
Founder Will Forte (not that one) contacted Backstreets to confirm the group was dropping out of the gala, saying in a statement:
“With deepest apologies to our fans and the New Jersey Inaugural Ball committee, the B Street Band is withdrawing from performing at this year’s inauguration Gala. Our decision is based SOLELY on the respect and gratitude we have for Bruce and the E Street Band. Bruce’s music has been the foundation of our livelihood. The B Street Band would not exist without the talents of Bruce and our E Street brothers. We are most grateful to these rock legends and look forward to many more years of emulating and performing the Forever Music, of Bruce Springsteen.”
Sorry, Trump, but Bruce will always be the Boss!
We’re glad the B Street came to their senses and will leave the racist Republican Dancing in the Dark at his own sad ceremony.
