After huge ticket demand and stellar reviews for the 24 Karat Gold Tour, the legendary gold dust queen Stevie Nicks, a Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and multi-platinum Grammy Award winning solo artist, has agreed to continue singing and dancing across the stages of North America performing her classic hits along with fan favorites from throughout her career as a solo artist and member of Fleetwood Mac. Nicks has collectively sold over 140 million albums.

“It’s been thrilling to get on stage each night and sing some of my early gems from early in my career along with material from my last two albums, “In Your Dreams” and “24 Karat Gold – Songs From The Vault,” says Stevie Nicks.

Daryl Hall & John Oates, Tears For Fears, Monday, May 22, Schottentein Center

Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, Daryl Hall & John Oates, are partnering with international multi-platinum selling band, Tears For Fears, for a 29-city North American tour that will visit the Schottenstein Center on Monday, May 22, 2017. The tour will kick off May 4 in Tulsa and include stops in Chicago, Nashville, Miami, New York, Dallas, Toronto, Denver, Las Vegas and more before wrapping up in LA in July. The tour will also feature a special acoustic performance by opening act, Allen Stone.

“I am very excited to be touring with Tears for Fears. Their music has a timeless quality that complements what we do, ” said Daryl Hall. “I can’t wait to get back out on the road in 2017. Performing with Tears For Fears will be an exciting and musical experience for me and all the fans,” added John Oates. “We’re thrilled to be going out on the road with Daryl Hall & John Oates this summer,” said Tears For Fears. “We’ve been longtime fans of the band so it’ll be fun to reconnect.”

From the mid-’70s to mid-’80s, the duo of Hall & Oates scored six #1 singles, including “Rich Girl” (also #1 R&B), “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (also #1 R&B), “Maneater” and “Out of Touch” from six consecutive multi-platinum albums. The era also produced 5 Top 10 singles, “Sara Smile,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” “Say It Isn’t So” and “Method of Modern Love.” By 1987, the RIAA recognized Daryl Hall and John Oates as the NUMBER-ONE SELLING DUO in music history, a record they still hold today. On May 20, 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award. In 2014, Daryl and John were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Besides selling 30 million albums worldwide, performing to sold out crowds and winning awards, the DNA of Tears For Fears—Roland Orzabal (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Curt Smith (vocals, bass, keyboards) — remains embedded within three generations of artists quietly casting a shadow over rock, hip-hop, electronic dance and indie music. Their catalog spans a three-decade discography of hits from “Mad World,” “Change,” and “Pale Shelter” to “Everybody Wants To Rule The World,” “Shout,” “Sowing The Seeds of Love,” and “Everybody Loves A Happy Ending.”

About Allen Stone – the artist deeply devoted to making uncompromisingly soulful music that transcends pop convention.
