Is this a different event than the inaugural ball? I'm confused.

If that's the case, I think that this was an acceptable compromise. Hopefully it's not publicized too much. The way the article phrased it is very confusing.

It absolutely smacks of a compromise. I wonder if Mike will come clean about the compromise aspect of it.

Knowing the likes of the Trumpster and myKe luHv, I'm leaning toward the idea of some kind of witchy, backroom insidious deal that was brewed to give the luHvster some sort of benefit besides money. The bottom line is that it's a Trump based show connected to the Inauguration.  Roll Eyes

It's still a gross association, but marginally better than the alternative.

Hopefully, it's one of those balls where at midnight, Bruce will change back into a pumpkin.

I don't see the point in punishing Brian's musical output solely because Mike wants to wow the President Elect with how long he can weeze "wheeeeeeen" into a microphone.- rab2591

I will no longer be financially supporting them in anyway. Archival releases or otherwise. I hope that Brian & Al, as I believe they are entitled to a cut of the earnings from it, will distance themselves and donate the proceeds to charities that support the people who the incoming president most threatens.

And see, by doing it like this, he's supporting Trump but less overtly. Clever.

Yeah, it's either that, or face explaining how he was emasculated by BRI, and/or that the once great BBs are now demoted below 3 F*cking Doors Down.

It's an embarrassment in every way. I guess it's a little less overt, but it's a thinly-veiled omnipresent-baseball-cap diversion maneuver.

I wouldn't say this is particularly an acceptable compromise based on the fears/concerns/outrage we've been discussing in recent weeks.

This is more of a "not quite as bad" sort of scenario. I'm certainly not going to give Mike any props for this. I suppose it's best to hope the media ignores it, but with even a Springsteen *tribute* band dropping out of the (apparently) main inauguration concert, the media might still latch onto it.

Especially since the Bruce Springsteen cover band that was set to perform backed out.

Good, I think it is wonderful that he is "kind of playing the inauguration".  Sort of like how Obama kind of played being the president.....but mostly just played around and vacationed on our tax dollars.

This has nothing to do with Trump.  It's for people from Texas living in DC and it happens every four years.  But continue on with your misplaced outrage.

I'm a little lost as to how an event that celebrates the inauguration has nothing to do with the person being inaugurated.  It's not like this is a party that's thrown every four years that just happens to line up with the Presidential inauguration. It's an inaugural ball for President Trump.
