Motley Crue’s Vince Neil has agreed to perform at Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration this upcoming January (Jan. 20).
Billboard reports that Neil claims he was asked about his availability to play at the event “months ago.” For the inauguration, Neil will be playing with his own band. He is also slated to appear on the forthcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, which will air on NBC the same month.
“The promoters asked if I was available, and I said yes,” Neil said to the publication. “So we sent all of the band’s passports to the Secret Service so everybody can get in, and all of the crew people, not knowing who was winning. But we were already scheduled to play.”
Neil further describes being amused by the third debate in Las Vegas since someone in attendance resembling him ignited a Twitter debate that he was at the event.
He is still unsure of what other bands will be performing, and further said, “I don’t know how long I have to play. I don’t know if the Republican Party says which [songs] to play and what not to do. It’s a little ways out. I’ll have more information as time goes on.”
A Motley Crue biopic is also currently underway, based on the 2001 memoir The Dirt: The Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band, and is being produced by Focus Features. It is tentatively titled The Dirt, and was previously owned by Paramount Pictures. David Fincher (Gone Girl) had been signed on to direct the film.
