    Trump finally lands big name inaugural act: ‘America’s number one Bruce Springsteen cover band

    Donald Trump’s well-documented struggle to find someone—anyone—willing to play at his inauguration has finally come to an end.

    According to Consequence of Sound, while performers from Elton John to Kanye West have declined to participate in the upcoming inauguration, the president-elect did manage to find one group willing to serenade him on Jan. 20: The B Street Band, “America’s number one Bruce Springsteen cover band.”

    Springsteen in the flesh appeared at President Barack Obama’s star-studded 2009 inauguration, but considering “The Boss” once called Trump a “flagrant, toxic narcissist,” it’s safe to say he won’t be rocking out onstage for the president-elect (despite Trump naming Springsteen superfan Chris Christie as honorary chair of the ball).

    Tom Barrack, Trump’s inaugural committee chief, tempered expectations for the inauguration Tuesday, insisting Trump doesn’t care that a-list celebrities aren’t interested in palling around with him on his big day.

    “We’re fortunate in that we have the greatest celebrity in the world, which is the president-elect,” Barrack said. “So what we’ve done instead of trying to surround him with what people consider A-listers is we are going to surround him with the soft sensuality of the place. It’s a much more poetic cadence than having a circus-like celebration that’s a coronation.”

    1. Why does money need to be wasted on parties anyway.

    Where is it written that a President has to take office with as much fanfare as possible?  Get sworn in- go home and get to work. Fuck the partying.

      4. It is a reminder to us working class types, they get to party

      over all the money about to roll out of the Treasury. While we work for less and less. Would be the same for HRC. They party and live it up, we go back to work.

      I never promised you a rose garden.

    3. springsteen at a trump inaugural = oxymoronic

    I wonder if springsteen will have anything to say about it

    (not that I think anymore that springsteen is actually a champion for the people; just another rich guy, which walmart proved for him)
