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.” 

Red Dirt Report: 

“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.”

Consequence of Sound: 

“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 Colombus Dispatch: 

“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.”

Journal Sentinel: 

“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.”

Star 102.5: 

“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. “
