Hall and Oates are boycotting Arizona

hall and oates Hall and Oates are boycotting Arizona

Yeah, it’s over Arizona’s immigration law.  The pair issued a statement through their manager today saying they “stand in solidarity with the music community in boycotting Arizona at this time.”  Really?  Let’s go over a list of those who have been here since the law was passed and those who are coming to Arizona later this year.

Been here – done that:

[lastfm]Paul McCartney[/lastfm], [lastfm]Heart[/lastfm], [lastfm]Carole King[/lastfm] , [lastfm]James Taylor[/lastfm], [lastfm]Mark Lindsay[/lastfm], [lastfm]The Turtles[/lastfm], [lastfm]The Buckinghams[/lastfm], Mickey Dolenz of [lastfm]The Monkees [/lastfm]

Coming to Arizona:

[lastfm]Cheap Trick[/lastfm], [lastfm]George Benson[/lastfm], [lastfm]Gladys Knigh[/lastfm]t, [lastfm]Smokey Robinson[/lastfm], [lastfm]Chicago[/lastfm], [lastfm]Doobie Brothers[/lastfm], [lastfm]Asia[/lastfm], [lastfm]Johnny Winter[/lastfm], [lastfm]Edgar Winter[/lastfm], [lastfm]Tom Petty[/lastfm], [lastfm]American Idol 2010[/lastfm], [lastfm]Kenny Loggins[/lastfm], [lastfm]Lyle Lovett[/lastfm], [lastfm]Chris Issac[/lastfm], [lastfm]REO Speedwagon[/lastfm], [lastfm]Pat Benetar[/lastfm], [lastfm]Barenaked Ladies[/lastfm], [lastfm]Charlie Daniels[/lastfm], [lastfm]Kenny Rogers[/lastfm], and some I probably missed.

With all these great shows coming to Arizona, who has time for these two pinheads?

Not me.

    Mr. Steve Goddard…
    Hall and Oates should realize that the Fans supported them through the years and not the Arizona immigration law. Boycotting Arizona is turning their backs on the fans.
    Have a nice day. KEEP SMILING..
    PEACE🙂

  2. Well spoken – thanks for the comment.

    I’m all for boycotting H&O – don’t play their music on this station! I’ll turn my radio off, or change the station, whenever I hear their “music.” They have now joined the ranks of politicians, and I have lost respect for them. NO MORE Hall & Oates!

    Four points…
    H. and O. need to know who have supported them allll these years.
    The AZ law is basically the same as the Fed. laws that are not enforced (or AZ wouldn’t have felt the need to come with their own).
    Arizona consists of legal U.S. of A. citizens along with illegals.
    When will people stop listening to entertainers and do their own learning and research?

    I love the idea of boycotting them too! Sounds like a lame excuse to me! I totally agree with the other Kathy below…these laws have been in place for many years….and maybe instead of standing on their soapbox and trying to look like the “good guys” they should read the facts first! What does their concert have to do with it anyway?!? No one is going to be watching outside and nabbing people as they try to go into the concert! Nope. I’m done with them!!
