Fresh on the heels of the announcement that The Wiggles are coming to Chase Field, the Arizona Diamondbacks announced their second post-game concert.

I have to admit I am a lot more excited about this one than I was the first.

The Arizona Diamondbacks announced there would be a concert featuring Hall & Oates after the Los Angeles Dodgers/Arizona Diamondbacks game to kick off the Fourth of July Weekend.

This is an exciting announcement for anyone who grew up in the 1980’s or who has a parent who seems to be stuck in the 1980’s.

From 1980-1985, the duo of Daryl Hall and John Oates dominated the music scene.

They put together a string of songs and albums that remained at the top of the charts in sales and play. Songs include such classics as “Rich Girl,” “Kiss on my List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That,” and “Maneater.”

The concert begins a series of three days where the Diamondbacks are celebrating the Independence Day holiday.

Friday games typically end with a post-game fireworks show. But for this series, the fireworks will move to Saturday and will be expanded to become the Valley’s largest Independence Day fireworks show.

The All-American Weekend is sponsored by the Arizona Milk Producers and will be a series not to be missed.

The only thing that might have made this even more spectacular would have been if the Diamondbacks had scheduled 1980’s night on July 2.

I guess that may have been too much as we surely would have depleted the ozone layer with the fans using that much hair spray in one day.
