On Jan. 22, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame duo Daryl Hall and John Oates and the popular band Train announced a co-headlining North American summer tour, kicking off May 1 in Sacramento, Calif., and wrapping up August 11 in Seattle, Wash.

On March 29, the duo released their first single in 15 years. “Philly Forget Me Not,” credited to Daryl Hall & John Oates with Train, as an ode to Hall’s hometown.

“This song pretty much describes my feeling about Philly, my music home,” Hall said.
