Hall & Oates, Tears for Fears Plot Joint North American Tour

"We're thrilled to be going out on the road with Daryl Hall & John Oates this summer", said Tears For Fears.

They are partnering for a 29-city North American Tour that continues on to stops including Chicago, Nashville, Miami, New York, Dallas, Toronto, Denver, Las Vegas and more, and wraps up at the end of July in Los Angeles.

Still the number one best-selling musical duo in history, Hall & Oates scored several monster hits over the late '70s and early '80s, including "Rich Girl", "Private Eyes", "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)", "Maneater" and "You Make My Dreams". In total, they had 34 chart hits on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The singer tells Rolling Stone that the outing "could be the start of a long relationship between Tears for Fears and us". Tears for Fears broke out in the USA with 1985's "Songs from the Big Chair" album, featuring enduring singles of the era "Shout" and "Everybody Wants to Rule the World". Tears for Fears has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.
