Hall & Oates could have drifted off into the sunset playing cushy Las Vegas residencies for as long as they wanted to perform. After all, they are one of the most successful duos in rock/pop history, with ten No. 1 records and over twenty Top 40 songs. Instead, the duo are currently engaged in a protracted legal battle over an alleged breach of their business partnership, and it seems unlikely that we will ever see them share a stage (or at least not any time soon).
While performing together is off the table, John Oates and Daryl Hall continue sporadically playing solo shows. While Hall typically trots out the Hall & Oates classics – at least until any legal dispute is sorted – Oates takes a different approach. The singer/songwriter is one of the most influential musicians of the last four decades, and while there are some Hall & Oates favorites on the set list, they are few and far between. Instead, fans get more of Oates solo music, or H&O covers with a twist. In short, this is a concert well worth your time and money.
