The Bruce Springsteen cover band the B-Street Band has the gig on Friday at the inauguration of Donald Trump as president will be cancelled.

The group performed two times during the inauguration of Barack Obama in Washington and signed in 2013 for a new gig during the inauguration before they knew that Trump was going to be president.

When the news was announced that Trump was going to be president, and the band would occur, gave the group a lot of letters from supporters and opponents, says keyboardist and manager of the band Will Forte in Rolling Stone.

The main reason for the band now to withdraw is according to Forte, that Bruce Sprinsteen, the man of whom they play music, a major opponent of Trump.


“We wanted it absolutely does not make it seem as if we have no respect for the music of Bruce and his band,” says Forte. “I don’t want them to get upset. We have everything to thank him and our gratitude and respect for his band above all.”

“It was clear to us that it is just not working and we therefore had to do the right thing and our sign out.”


It takes the team of Trump, the greatest possible effort to great artists, to find that Friday for Trump like to perform at the inauguration.

Earlier were rumors that Kanye West and R Kelly went singing, but these speculations were refuted. Other big names from the music industry have refused to contribute to the day. At the inauguration of Barack Obama in 2013 sang Beyoncé the American national anthem.

Rock band 3 Doors Down, country singer Toby Keith, the sixteen-year-old Jackie Evancho and film actor Jon Voight going to be present during the inauguration.
