Hall & Oates and Tears for Fears Announce Giant North American Tour

There’s nothing more cost-effective for nostalgia acts than big-name joint tours, whether that’s Sugar Ray and the Goo Goo Dolls, or Def Leppard and Poison (with Tesla). The 1980s synth-pop equivalent is an auspicious new American tour from formerly big-haired Top 40 titans Hall & Oates and Tears for Fears, which will stretch from May through July of this year. The opener will be modern blue-eyed soul singer Allen Stone.

In a statement to Rolling Stone, Daryl Hall said: “I am very excited to be touring with Tears for Fears. Their music has a timeless quality that complements what we do.” Oates called them “one of [his] favorite bands.” This should be fun. Tickets for the tour go on sale March 10, with the exception of the L.A. show, for which tickets will be available on the 17th. Check out the full 29-date list below.
