3 Doors Down is headlining Donald Trump’s Inaugural Ball
Amidst the slew of festival announcements cropping up this month, Donald Trump’s Presidential Inaugural Committee has dropped the most hotly anticipated lineup yet. Furious debate over who would perform at the inauguration ceremonies has been circulating since election day. Artists have virtually been lining up to voice their public outrage with everyone from Andrea Bocelli to Kiss to Moby, to a few whiny Rockettes publicly disavowing the event. Despite their alleged common interests, even R. Kelly has refused to play in honor of the controversial President Elect.
After much ado, it has been announced that 3 Doors Down will headline the “Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration.” The concert will take place on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on January 19, the evening before the formal swearing in ceremonies. Those who can’t miss this historic concert — Donald Trump, nodding along to “Kryptonite” from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial! — can broadcast the event on likely every major news outlet.
The “‘Make America Great Again!’ Welcome Celebration” will take place Thursday, January 19th and will be broadcast live to the nation from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. It will feature historic remarks from President-elect Trump and special appearances from Toby Keith, Jon Voight, Jennifer Holliday, DJ Ravidrums, The Piano Guys, Tim Rushlow (“Little Texas”), Larry Stewart (“Restless Heart”), Marty Roe (“Diamond Rio”), Lee Greenwood, and 3 Doors Down. Information for free public events can be found at 58PIC2017.org
In addition to 3 Doors Down’s signature brand of tepid, gurgle rock, the ceremony will feature special appearances by Toby Keith and Jennifer Holliday and remarks from President Trump himself. The rest of the lineup includes: Jon Voight, DJ Ravidrums, The Piano Guys, Tim Rushlow, Larry Stewart, Marty Roe, and Lee Greenwood.
Tickets are not required for this event, but the Presidential Inaugural Committee is offering advance event information and free commemorative relics at their website, here.
