Hall and Oates have an extensive catalog, but haven’t released much original material since a 2006 Christmas album. That can only mean one thing: Get ready to hear the hits.

Tears For Fears also hasn’t released original material in more than a decade, so fans can likewise expect to hear the old stuff.

“I am very excited to be touring with Tears for Fears. Their music has a timeless quality that complements what we do. I think everyone is going to love this show!” Daryl Hall said.
