After a successful solo career, singer-songwriters Daryl Hall and John Oates are planning a four-month concert tour. The tour will include individual sets, a mashup, and an opening act. The dates will begin May 1 in Sacramento, Calif., and end on Aug. 11 in Seattle, Wash., including San Diego’s Viejas Arena.
Despite their long-term collaboration, the singer-songwriters’ last performance together was in 2012. They first reunited on the NBC reality singing competition The Voice. In 1985, they released the album “Speak,” which won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album. In 2007, they won the BMI Icon Award at the 56th Annual Pop Awards. In 2008, Hall & Oates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2016, they received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The two artists have not collaborated together since 2006’s Home for Christmas, and both have recently released solo albums. Hall’s Laughing Down Crying and Oates’ Mississippi Mile were released in 2011 and 2013. Earlier this year, Hall starred in the hit television show Live From Daryl’s House, which featured Hall’s songs as well as those by Billy Gibbons and Aaron Neville.
After the massive success of Live at the Apollo, Hall and Oates decided to take a break from performing. However, they were reunited with David Ruffin and Eddie Kendricks, the voices of The Temptations. The album was their second attempt at a live Hall and Oates album. The medley of “The Way You Do the Things You Do” and “My Girl” was one of the Top 20 Grammy-nominated performances on the tour.
Hall & John Oates and Train have canceled their July 26 concert in Houston. The concert was scheduled for the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion and was originally slated for the Heights Theater. The co-headlining tour also featured KT Tunstall and Squeeze. It is not clear what caused the cancellation of the show. They have yet to announce the replacement dates. They have not announced the exact dates, but they will perform full sets on five of the remaining dates.
Hall & Oates have been touring the country for years. The duo recorded the best-selling album, “Home For Christmas,” in 2006. Both members of the band have released solo albums in recent years, including Laughing Down Crying, and Oates’ “Missisippant” and “Good Road to Follow.” Both have been on tour for eight seasons. They will perform five full sets, but not a joint set.
Hall & Oates are multi-platinum artists and have toured together for over 10 years. The duo has won Grammy Awards and are considered “the new Velvet Underground.” In addition to being the best-selling duo in history, the duo have inspired musical trailblazers and celebrities across the world. The singers are the first two to collaborate on a song, and the pair will perform a joint one at their next concert.
Hall and Oates have a unique partnership in the music industry. The duo’s mutual admiration for the music of fellow musicians has earned them the title of “co-headlining tour of the summer of 2015”. They will both perform full sets and a joint set to celebrate their long-standing relationship. They will also co-headline a tour in the U.S. in June.
After their breakout success with “You Make My Dreams,” Hall and Oates continued to develop their sound. They continued working in the studio while Voices reached its peak. The duo developed their distinctive blend of New Wave energy, soul, and hard rock grit. The band’s debut album, Private Eyes, was released in 2003. It spawned four singles, including the hit single, “You Make My Dreams.”
Aside from their musical talents, Hall and Oates’ political views have also been criticized. The Grammys, which are the equivalent of the Oscars, are criticized by many people. As a result, they were boycotted by Arizona politicians. As a result, they were forced to cancel their shows in the state. The Grammys are nominated for two categories of artists.
