White soul duo HALL + OATES have been forced to postpone dates on their upcoming summer (05) tour after singer Darryl Hall was diagnosed with Lyme disease.

The MANEATER hitmakers have announced they'll be rescheduling up to 16 tour dates as Hall deals with his health crisis. Six dates have already been postponed.

The singer is expected to make a complete recovery from the inflammatory flu-like disease and dates the duo have planned with rocker Todd Rundgren late next month (AUG05) are not expected to be effected.
