After a massive barrage of artists already announced they will cease to perform in Arizona until the current immigration law is repealed, ’80s yacht rock duo, [lastfm]Hall & Oates[/lastfm], have joined in on the statewide protest.
Here why they’ve joined in after the jump!
The twosome has announced that their plans to play a gig following an Arizona Diamondbacks game in July is being canceled indefinitely pending the debate over Arizona’s new immigration law.
According to Billboard, [lastfm]Hall & Oates[/lastfm] issued a statement regarding their decision through their manager Jonathan Wolfson which said:
Hall and Oates will not play Phoenix July 2 because of their personal stance against Arizona’s new immigration law.
Hall & Oates fall in line with a long line of artists–led by [lastfm]Rage Against the Machine[/lastfm], and including [lastfm]Kanye West[/lastfm], [lastfm]Sonic Youth[/lastfm], and [lastfm]Massive Attack[/lastfm]–are calling for a boycott of Arizona that refuse to perform in Arizona until the immigration law is repealed.
Hall & Oates know all about taking one for the team. Check out their music video for “I Can’t Go For That”:
