American country music star Toby Keith is joining Donald Trump on his trip to Saudi Arabia.
Keith will be performing at a free, men-only concert in Riyadh, Associated Press reported.
The country musician known for his songs I Love This Bar, Drunk Americans and I Like Girls That Drink Beer left many on Twitter confused. Alcohol is strictly prohibited in the Kingdom and unrelated men and women are restricted from mingling in public.
It sounds crazy enough to be satire...

Some just knew the entire trip was going to be a disaster:

Quote of the day-Being banned from attending a Toby Keith concert is, coincidentally, the one and only perk of being a woman in Saudi Arabia— Bev Chicotel (@BChicotel) May 19, 2017
Saudi entertainment website Lammt is advertising the event and said the concert is free and open to men only. An Arabian lute player will be performing with Keith.
Keith previously performed at Donald Trump's inauguration in January, saying it was an 'honour' to do so regardless of who is in office.
