Los Angeles (AP)_ Daryl Hall and John Oates are ready to play catch-up.

Six weeks after their tour was postponed because Hall was diagnosed with Lyme disease, the duo plans to return to the road this weekend.

A publicist says Hall's expected to make a full recovery.

Hall and Oates are set to play six rescheduled shows, the first one on Saturday in Toledo, Ohio. Dates in late August and throughout September are scheduled to take place as planned.

Lyme disease is caused by the bite of an infected deer ticks. It can cause arthritis, neurological problems and a potentially deadly brain inflammation.
