PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks announced today that Daryl Hall and John Oates canceled their post-game concert at Chase Field that was to take place following the D-backs game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on July 2 because of their personal stance against Arizona's new immigration law.

Daryl Hall and John 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."

Other events surrounding the D-backs' All-American Weekend, will still take place, including the Valley's largest Independence Day fireworks show, courtesy of Gila River Casinos, following the 6:40 p.m. game on July 3 and the organization's annual Military Day salute during the 1:10 p.m. game on July 4.

"We understand the reasoning behind Daryl Hall and John Oates not wanting to perform in Arizona at this time to solidify themselves with their peers in the music industry," said D-backs' President & CEO Derrick Hall. "The cancelation of this post-game concert is another example of how controversial this issue is."
