Alec Baldwin Wants To Perform ‘Highway To Hell’ At Donald Trump’s Inauguration
Alec Baldwin wants to perform AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” at Donald Trump’s inauguration in January. The actor made the offer Friday on Twitter shortly after the president-elect tweeted about not wanting celebrities at the ceremony.
Baldwin posted a music video of the classic 1979 rock song and added, “I wanna perform at Trump’s inauguration. I wanna sing HIGHWAY TO HELL.” His tweet was seemingly in response to recent reports that the Trump administration is having trouble getting stars to participate in the 45th president’s inauguration. The president-elect himself commented about this on Thursday, tweeting, “The so-called ‘A’ list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING. I want the PEOPLE!”
In addition to his offer, Baldwin also tweeted a more serious sentiment about Trump’s upcoming ceremony. “We are not far from the day when the most reviled candidate in our history will become President,” the actor wrote. “Unwanted by a significant majority of voters. A man who has projected little other than an empty braggadocio and synthetic rhetoric about both his qualifications and plans but Inauguration Day means the beginning of the countdown to when he will be gone. And he will be gone. January 20. The countdown begins.” Of course, Baldwin currently has a recurring role impersonating Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” and the president-elect has tweeted his displeasure with the imitation on multiple occasions.
