Pop duo Hall & Oates canceled their appearances in the islands this month due to a medical issue.

Daryl Hall has a problem with his tonsils and has been advised by his doctors not to sing for seven weeks, according to an announcement from concert promoter BAMP.

He and John Oates created the hits “Sara Smiles” and “Rich Girl” in the late 1970s. The duo were scheduled to perform at the Blaisdell Arena on Oct. 27 and at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on Oct. 29.

Refunds for tickets sold at the Blaisdell Box Office and on site at the MACC will be available starting Friday at 10 a.m. Credit-card purchases, Ticketmaster phone charges and online sales will be credited to customers’ accounts.
