Hall & Oates to Play Mizner Park Amphitheatre on Feb. 20!

hallandoatesretro.jpgCredit it, partially at least, to the rise of smooth - jam - loving new indie-ish bands like Tigercity, the Yacht Rock series on YouTube, and the unexpected, fanatical boosterism from people like Travis McCoy of the Gym Class Heroes. The blue-eyed soul duo of Hall & Oates is experiencing one of the most meteoric, but not-so-unlikely renaissances of any Eighties pop act. Under all that funky studio wizardry were, of course, some real vocal chops, and mentally indelible songs. Local hipsters might dance wildly to "Out of Touch" at places like the back room of Purdy Lounge, but it's only partially ironically.

So it was just a matter of time before Darryl Hall and John Oates launched a

full-scale national tour, which comes to Boca's Mizner Park Ampitheatre

on February 20. Expect a wild cross-section of people who have finally

admitted that soul really matters to them.

Tickets go on sale Monday,

January 12 at 10 a.m. Remember, as Crossfade reported yesterday, Mizner Park

Amphitheatre now sells tickets exclusively through, so

don't bother logging into Ticketmaster.
