Hall & Oates Are “Back Together Again!” Celebrating Their New Tour With Some Classic Songs And Tour Set List!

Daryl Hall & John Oates Are Performing Live Again!

Exciting news for fans as the duo are once again performing live – and here is the set list!

Of particular interest to me was song #9 – an album track from the 70’s that showcases their incredible harmonies!

Here they are in a vintage TV clip performing the song:

I know that some fans are complaining in online forums for the lack of songs from the 70’s and 90’s…like this classic from 1979:

“Wait For Me” is a great song – could they mix it up a bit more?

Sure – maybe even include this neglected gem:

“So Close” is both the opening AND closing track from the “Change Of Season” album in 1990 – and this music video begins with the slow version before kicking into the fast one – I love this song and video:

Let the debate continue about what is and isn’t being performed – very few songs from John, and no Daryl solo songs at all….we’ll see if future tours change that!

Well, I hope everyone who sees them this time out has a blast at the show – here is a look at the show I saw in 2017:

My wife and I were in the second row – a perfect view as they played for almost two hours…here’s their performance of the terrific hit “Out Of Touch”:

I’ve shared many stories about the duo – I am especially a fan of some of their lesser-known song.

Here are some of my favorite Daryl Hall and John Oates album tracks:

In a recent interview, Hall referred to a reviewer as “an asshole” for giving a tepid review of this album:

Well, considering this is almost 50 years old, he really holds a grudge!

That said, he’s right of course – it’s a masterwork and here’s a look at the album track by track:

  7. I would be happy with that play-list, John. ‘Sara Smile’ is a big favourite of mine.
    My second favourite is from Daryl Hall’s solo album, and the song is ‘I’m in a Philly Mood’.
    Hope you can get tickets!
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Pete, that “soul alone” album is fantastic! He just did an interview where he complained that people didn’t buy his solo albums…he is very proud of them and has always resented that he is more popular with John, even though he writes almost everything..to me he should perhaps be a bit more gracious…my wife had Oates on her show and he was just that and more…a terrific person. thanks for commenting, glad you enjoy their music!
