Elton John and Steven Tyler would love to see you the night of the Oscars. It’ll cost you, though.
Tyler is auctioning two spots at his table at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party dinner on Feb. 26. The event will be hosted by John and partner David Furnish in West Hollywood.
Tyler struck a jovial tone in a statement about the event:
“How would you have to dress if you were sitting next to me at a banquet table at Elton John’s Oscar Party? Sounds like a loaded question, eh? Put your money where your mouth is and arrive as you will and come as you are to help me support the Elton John AIDS Foundation!”
The evening includes a cocktail reception, dinner by “Iron Chef” Cat Cora and a performance by Foster the People following the Oscars telecast.
Over the years the fete has drawn A-listers such as Halle Berry, Nicolas Cage, Kevin Costner, Kevin Spacey, Denzel Washington and Catherine Zeta-Jones, while musical entertainment has been provided by artists including Mary J. Blige, James Blunt and John Legend, Grace Jones, and Florence & the Machine.
The current high bid is $13,500. The experience is valued at $25,000. Proceeds benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation. If you win you and your guest will be subject to security screening. You have to get yourselves out there and find your own place to stay. And you cannot resell the item.
