- Hall & Oates are a pop-rock duo from Philadelphia, U.S., formed in 1970. The band has released 18 full-length albums that have spanned their remarkable 40 year career. The sensational duo met when separately performing at a band competition in Philadelphia, Hall with his band The Temptones, and Oates with his band The Masters. Weirdly enough gunfire rang out from two rival gangs and seeking safety, the pair jumped into a service elevator, and it didn’t take long for the duo realise their similarities and their joint attendance at Philadelphia’s Temple University. The duo then shared a number of apartments together and the name derived from “Hall & Oates” which was written on their mailbox. Around this time the pair got the attention of Tommy Mottola, who became their manager and secured a contract with Atlantic Records. The early releases of Hall & Oates show an ironing out of their sound, finding out what worked and what didn’t and defining themselves by that sound, which drew from folk, soul, rock and pop influences. Working with producers Arif Mardin and Todd Rundgren on the early albums “Whole Oates” (1972), “Abandoned Luncheonette” (1973), and “War Babies” (1974) they removed many of the folk elements, and despite big name producers the band achieved on limited commercial success. The late ‘70s brought a more rock-incorporated style into Hall & Oates’ blue-eyes soul, however the new sound didn’t pay off until the duo’s heyday from 1980-1985, where the band enjoyed its greatest commercial and artistic success. In April 1984 the Recording Association of America announced that Hall & Oates were the most successful duo in rock history, surpassing The Everly Brother by earning a total of 19 platinum and gold awards. Songs like their biggest hit single “Maneater”, “Private Eyes” and “You Make My Dreams” ensured the pair remained in and around the top of the charts and increased in popularity. The band then went on to release another handful of albums with varying success and continue to tour to the day. Hall & Oates have released a mind-boggling 18 full-length studio albums, 11 live albums and have a no less than 27 ‘greatest hits’ albums, compiling their best songs. In 2014 the duo were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Hall and oates Tour
- “Down in front!” The house lights had just been turned off and a white arch of LEDs framed the stage in blinding white. The young girls in front of us had the audacity to stand up for the headliners and the guy beside me wasn’t having it. He yelled at them a few more times before they finally gave in. Luckily for them (and the rest of us who were there to have a good time) they didn’t have to sit for long. A few seconds later Daryl Hall and John Oates took the stage with their 6-piece band and people finally found their feet. I’m sure there were those who stubbornly sat in protest, but majority ruled and 90% of the audience were on their feet for the entirety of the Hall & Oates set, which was actually kind of funny, given that it was the most mellow set of the whole evening. Having seen Hall & Oates perform at the 1stBank Center a couple years ago, I thought I knew what to expect. I have fond memories of that performance, with the exception of hating the venue. We were crowded together in rows of folding chairs on the floor of the arena with no room to move or dance. I also remember the show starting and ending way too early. In fact, I think it was almost over by 9:00pm, which just happened to be their starting time at Red Rocks. That being said, the show started out much the same. “Maneater” opened things up before Daryl addressed the crowd, and then they went right into “Out of Touch”. Being outside at Red Rock was so much better than being cramped into that corporate events center up north. It helped that the opening acts had really warmed things up as well. I don’t even know if there was an opening act last time. The setlist diverge a bit from there on out, but “Say It Isn’t So”, “Las Vegas Turnaround”, “She’s Gone”, and “Sara Smile” were all common denominators. John Oates had shaved his trademark porn stache in favor of a pencil-thin goatee, but he still rocked the curls. Daryl Hall had aged quite a bit, but he hid the years behind long blonde hair and big sunglasses. They both looked much younger than 68 and 69 years old. Appearances aside, they sounded much like they did when they were rockin’ the airwaves through the 70’s and 80’s. The main set lasted about an hour and it was jam packed with classics spanning a career from 1973 – 1984. They knew better than to indulge themselves in newer material. The audience was there for the hits. The songs recalled a time long past, but the music didn’t sound dated at all. “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)” might have gone on a little long, and the Charles DeChant-led sax jam session might have drifted a little too far into dentist-office jazz territory, but that just provided enough time to go grab one last beer before the first encore
