Hall & Oates: Review Roundup
The number-one selling duo, Daryl Hall and John Oates, have been touring the country and are headed to Golden 1 Center in just a few weeks! Here is what people have been saying about their tour thus far:
"Their grand Beatles homage, 'Sowing the Seeds of Love,' soared, with rhythm guitarist Orzabal adding impressive vocal theatrics at the end of the song, and it was a treat for longtime fans to hear the pretty 'Advice for the Young at Heart,' a minor hit for the band in 1990."
"If their show in Tulsa at the BOK Center this past Thursday night is any indication, it might just be a match made in ‘80s heaven. As the opening night of their tour that runs through July, the two groups unearthed everything from their greatest hits to fan favorites to deliver a nearly four-hour set."
"Some clapped along, some stood and danced (much to the chagrin of their new wave-loving neighbors), but everyone sang. How could they not? Between the two acts, you have an enviable playlist of some of the greatest hits of the ’80s — and that wasn’t lost on anyone."
"The duo was able to exploit the natural qualities of its music, catchy pop carried by classic soul stylings. With an underpinning in gospel and a bit of blues, as well, it lent itself better to spontaneity and an organic delivery."
"Hall took the reins for "You Make My Dreams," the buoyant keyboards and wordless choruses triggering widespread dance parties for the entirety of the three song encore."
"Daryl Hall proved himself to be one of the best musicians on a stage that showcased an eight-man band. Hall’s counterpart, John Oates is also a very talented guitar player in his own right. "
