Earth Wind & Fire

We're PUMPED

to Play at the DNC

EXCLUSIVE

Earth Wind & Fire has touched down in Charlotte, North Carolina ... and the band tells TMZ they plan to "rock the house" when they perform at the Democratic National Convention this week.

The band is scheduled to play at the DNC right before Barack Obama accepts the Democratic nomination for President of the United States.

As the guys arrived to the airport, legendary bassist Verdine White told us, "It's gonna be great ... like always."

The pre-speech concert is gonna be one helluva show ... featuring Mary J. Blige, James Taylor and the Foo Fighters.

No word on which songs EW&F will play ... but the smart money is on "Dancing in September."

EW&T is still younger and more relevant than what passes for GOP stars!

Yes, as others have said, CNN announced a while ago that they are no longer performing due to the venue change.

Cnn just said Earth Wind and Fire were cancelled because the convention will be moved indoors

It is being moved indoors because they couldn't fill the outdoor stadium. Obama's hope is fading and the only change that has taken place is unemployment is at a 27 year high for black Americans. Obama and his wife seemed very pleased with themselves considering the poor job he did the last 3 1/2 years.
