Moby And Earth Wind & Fire To Play Oscar Bash

Moby will share the stage with Earth, Wind & Fire on March 26 for a special Hollywood party celebrating this year's presentation of the Academy Awards, which will be handed out that same evening in Los Angeles.

Presented by the Hollywood Stock Exchange, the "O2K" party at the House of Blues in West Hollywood will feature Moby spinning records in two live DJ sets, while Earth, Wind & Fire will perform a set after the Academy Awards have been completed.

Several as-yet-unnamed guests are expected to join Earth, Wind & Fire at the gig. The legendary soul group will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame on March 6 (see "Eric Clapton, Earth Wind & Fire, James Taylor Selected For Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame").

Moby, who has undoubtedly upped his profile in the last few weeks via a series of deals and performances at celebrity-laden benefits, will join Bush on the next MTV Campus Invasion Tour, scheduled to

begin on March 23 at the University of Central Florida in Orlando (see "Bush And Moby Hook Up For Collegiate Tour").
