The Minnesota State Fair is making the dreams come true of Hall & Oates fans by booking the duo for its 2019 Grandstand Concert Series.

Bigger success followed, leading to an expansive back catalog that includes "Rich Girl," "Out of Touch," "Maneater," "Private Eyes," "I Can't Go For That," "Sara Smile," and "Kiss On My List."

Other acts already announced for the State Fair Grandstand Series include Lionel Richie, Brandi Carlile, Weird Al Yankovic, Hootie & The Blowfish and Barenaked Ladies.
