Hall & Oates and Train will play Amalie Arena on June 22

Tickets go on sale January 29.


Our concert announcements are usually built around big hip-hop, pop, and even skibildeebebopbee shows.

Well, we want to remind old white people that we have not forgotten about you. Jokes aside, this booking elicited screams of joy in my house where the oldest person is my dog who clocks in at 56 if we calculate dog years; my wife and I are 33 and 31 years old.

Today, Amalie Arena announced that Daryl Hall and John Oates would be escaping the summer heat by bringing their co-headlining show with Train indoors on June 22.

Tickets for the Tampa stop of the 35-stop tour go on sale on Monday, January 29 at 12 p.m. EST. What's also cool is that the cheapest tickets to the show will only set fans back $15 (tickets top out at $125.75). UPDATE: That price was too good to be true. Tickets start at $45.75.

Train, O.A.R and Natasha Bedingfield are pockets of sunshine at MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa — 05.26.17 

"This is going to be a tour filled with fun as well as great music," Daryl Hall said of the summer outing. "I love Train, and have a close relationship with Pat Monahan, going back to our Live From Daryl’s House show together.”

“Looking forward to an amazing tour with our buddies from Train and seeing all our fans around the country in 2018," added John Oates.

Train was just in Tampa last summer as part of a tour with O.A.R, and Natasha Bedingfield, and frontman Monahan said that this tour is a career highlight for his band, which has placed 14 songs on Billboard's Hot 100.

“I’ve known Daryl Hall and John Oates for a few years now and after being their fan my entire life," Monahan said. "We now get to tour with them and spend time with legends in the world of music."
