While Elton John publicly declined to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration, Garth Brooks, on the other hand, says he would jump at the opportunity.
TMZ caught up with the country star at a tree lighting ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Thursday where the singer didn’t gawk at the idea.
When asked if he would entertain an offer to perform at the event on Jan. 20, the 54-year-old star remained open to the idea. “It’s always about serving, you know… it’s what you do,” he said after admitting that Trump’s team has yet to ask him.
Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil was rumoured to be confirmed for the political event, however, the invitation was later rescinded. “I guess there’s more politics in bands playing than I really thought there was. I don’t know who’s playing Trump’s party, but God bless them,” Neil told TMZ.
Mick Jagger, meanwhile, poked fun at the election results with a recent tweet about the upcoming event: “Just was watching the news… maybe they’ll ask me to sing ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ at the inauguration, ha!”
Trump played the classic Rolling Stones song throughout the campaign, including after his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in July, and as he travelled the U.S. at his heated campaign rallies.
