(Brooklyn, NY) -- The man who tried to assassinate former President Ronald Reagan in 1981 will perform at a sold-out concert next month. Fox 5 New York reports that John Hinckley, Jr. will play guitar and sing for a sold-out audience in Brooklyn on July 8th. A federal court judge freed the 67-year-old Hinckley from all restrictions last September after he served more than three decades in a psychiatric hospital. Hinckley hopes to pursue a music career and the Brooklyn show is part of what he calls the John Hinckley Redemption Tour. Appearances in Connecticut and Chicago have been canceled.
Hinckley wounded Reagan, as well as a police officer, a Secret Service agent, and White House Press Secretary James Brady. Brady, who was shot in the head, was severely disabled before dying in 2014.
