It seems a Trump advisor has spoken too soon after claiming Elton John would be singing at President-Elect, Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20.
Transition team member, Anthony Scaramucci told BBC Hardtalk Trump would, “be the first American president in US history that enters the White House with a pro-gay rights stance.”

“Elton John is going to be doing our concert on the mall for the inauguration,” Scaramucci added.
Erm, might be time to check your facts there buddy.
A representative for John has said, “Elton will not be performing at Trump’s inauguration.”
Keeping in mind this is a top advisor for the Trump team, Scaramucci said John would be performing even though John had explicitly asked Trump not to play his music during the rallies and openly supported Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Heck, he even held a Clinton fundraiser where premium tickets were being sold at £80,500 a pop.
“We need a humanitarian in the White House, not a barbarian,” the performer said in October during the fundraiser, adding Clinton embodies “equality, decency, kindness and respect.”
“She is, without a doubt, the only candidate supremely qualified to lead this great nation in these challenging times,” John said at the time.
