Page Six: Beach Boys May Perform at Trump Inauguration

The Beach Boys could be having "Fun, Fun, Fun" at President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration.

The iconic California surf band, headed by lead singer Mike Love, has been invited to perform, Richard Johnson reported in Page Six of the New York Post.

"They have not made a decision," The Post quoted a source close to the band, which now performs without co-founding member Brian Wilson.

Word of the Beach Boys invite comes after country music superstar Garth Brooks and tenor Andrea Bocelli declined to perform at the Jan. 20 swearing-in after being attacked on social media by Hillary Clinton supporters, who also threatened to boycott their concerts, the Post reported.

"They both bowed to the pressure," an insider told the newspaper. "Their phones were blowing up, and they decided it just wasn't worth it."

Teen singer Jackie Evancho and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir have already been booked for the festivities.

Love had told the newspaper back in September he would be willing to perform if Trump won the election.

"He's been a friend for a long time," Love said. "Does that mean I agree with everything he says? No. But . . . if we were asked (to play his inauguration), I'm sure that we would."

The group has performed in the past for Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan.

Variety reported there has also been speculation Kanye West would perform at one of the inauguration events.

West and Trump met at Trump Tower in New York, but both declined to elaborate what they discussed.
