Event will take place at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC on January 19
Trump will be sworn in as President in Washington, DC on January 20. Former America’s Got Talent runner-up Jackie Evancho is the only big name booked to perform at the event so far.
While US band 3 Doors Down won’t perform at the inauguration itself, they will appear at a concert called ‘The Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration’ the day before, January 19, at the Lincoln Memorial.
The rest of the line-up includes Toby Keith, Jon Voight, Jennifer Holliday, DJ Ravidrums, The Piano Guys, Tim Rushlow, Larry Stewart, Lee Greenwood, Marty Roe and, in the words of 3 Doors Down, “historic remarks from President-elect Trump”.

Meanwhile, Evancho, the teenage singer set to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration next week, has said that her decision to accept the President-elect’s invitation was “not political” and she is simply doing it “for my country”.
Evancho described Trump as “very polite” to the New York Times, adding: “I just kind of thought that this is for my country. So if people are going to hate on me it’s for the wrong reason.”
