Hall & Oates Join Arizona Boycott, Cancel Phoenix Gig

Hall Oates

The rock duo Daryl Hall and John Oates announced Monday they will not be playing Phoenix next month following an Arizona Diamondbacks game.

Their manager Jonathan Wolfson told The Associated Press from Los Angeles that Hall and Oates will not play Phoenix July 2 because of their personal stance against Arizona's new immigration law.

The pair issued a statement through Wolfson saying they stand in solidarity with the music community in boycotting Arizona at this time.

They also emphasized the decision has nothing to do with the management of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

D-backs' president and chief executive Derrick Hall said they understand the duo's decision.
