John Hinckley Jr., the man who shot President Ronald Reagan in 1981, reportedly will perform a sold-out concert in New York City in July.

Hinckley, 67, sings and plays guitar and hopes to pursue a music career. He shares his music on a YouTube channel.

The would-be assassin was set to perform the sold-out show in Brooklyn at the Market Hotel, FOX5 New York reported, citing the venue’s website.

Hinckley had previously tweeted that he will take the stage at 7 p.m. on July 8.
