Hall and Oates to AZ: "I Can't Go For That"

Hall and Oates to AZ: "I Can't Go For That"

I knew there was a reason I liked these guys:

The Arizona Diamondbacks announced Monday that Daryl Hall and John Oates canceled their postgame concert scheduled for July 2 at Chase Field because of their personal stance against Arizona's new immigration law.

Hall and Oates issued the following statement:

"In addition to our personal convictions, we are standing in solidarity with the music community in our boycott of performing in Arizona at this time. We would like to emphasize that this has nothing to do with the management of the Arizona Diamondbacks, who have been professional and cooperative throughout our dealings with them. This is our response to a very specific action of the state."

Los Lobos is also reportedly on board, although it would be shocking if "just another band from East L.A." were not taking part.
