Save Me, Sacramento?

Hall & Oates and Train are kicking off a 37-city tour at Golden 1 Center on May 1, the bands announced Monday. The rockers will play another show three days later at SAP Center in San Jose, then hit the road before returning to Northern California for an Aug. 8 show at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

Daryl Hall and John Oates played a sold-out show at Golden 1 Center alongside Tears for Fears last July. Oates released his version of the Jimmie Rodgers song “Miss the Mississippi and You” last week from his solo album “Arkansas” due out Feb. 2, while Hall has hosted the TV series “Live from Daryl’s House” online or on MTV since 2007.

Train lead singer Pat Monahan and then-guitarist Jimmy Stafford joined Hall for an episode in 2010 to perform hits such as “Hey, Soul Sister” and “Wait for Me.”

Hall & Oates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, 10 years after each of them were made members of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. The duo released six No. 1 hits, including “Maneater,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” and “Out of Touch,” between 1977 and 1984.

Train burst out of San Francisco into national prominence with the release of the band’s second album, “Drops of Jupiter,” in 2001. The lead single by the same name won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Song and Best Instrumental Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals that year.

After a bit of a commercial lag and a two-year hiatus in the mid-2000s, the band enjoyed two top five hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at the beginning of this decade. Their most recent album, “A Girl, A Bottle, A Boat,” peaked at No. 8 last year.

Presale tickets will be available Tuesday at 10 a.m. PST for those who sign up for Train’s mailing list by 3 p.m. on Monday. General tickets will go on sale Jan. 29 at 10 a.m.
