Phew. For a while there, it was looking like The Trump's inauguration and the various pre-events that go with it would have a lot of blank spaces where some of the biggest stars of the entertainment world would usually be.

Luckily, the president-elect's team have finally booked a band to play the event - but it's not what you might think.

A Bruce Springsteen tribute band called The B-Street Band have been booked to play the Garden State Presidential Inauguration Gala in Washington the evening before the main event, although they have come under serious fire for it since it was announced.

Frontman Will Forte told Rolling Stone that they had received a huge amount of emails and correspondence denouncing their decision. "We're a non-political band," he said. "We're hired to do things and we don't look at what the repercussions are of playing an event at all. We don't even go into politics that deeply. The guys in the band are so easy-going, I don't even know if they have any politics."

He added that they had also played the same gig for Obama's last two inaugurations.

It looks like the B-Street Band are the best that Trump's people could hope for, considering Springsteen himself has made his feelings on the future 45th president very clear in the past.
