After selling out their upcoming February 28 performance at NYC’s Madison Square Garden in short order, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Daryl Hall & John Oates have announced a 32-date North American summer tour with Squeeze and KT Tunstall. Produced by Live Nation, the latest tour by the best-selling duo of all-time will kick off this May at the famous Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA and make stops in Toronto, Chicago, Atlanta and more before wrapping September 2 at Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in New Hampshire.
Daryl Hall & John Oates are legends who continue to inspire today’s musical trailblazers. Their influence on multiple generations of musicians and songwriters is perhaps best summarized by SPIN who claimed “Hall and Oates are the new Velvet Underground.” On-the-record fans include: Cameron Crowe, Mark Ronson, Questlove, Adam Sandler, John Mayer, Booker T. Jones, Rob Thomas, Brandon Flowers, Amos Lee, Ben Gibbard and Nick Lowe.
The international multi-platinum-selling group has sold more albums than any other duo in music history. 1973’s Atlantic debut Abandoned Luncheonette and 1974’s Todd Rundgren-produced War Babies kicked off a record-breaking career that yielded six consecutive multi-platinum albums: Bigger Than Both of Us (1976), Voices (1980), Private Eyes (1981), H2O (1982), the greatest hits collection Rock N Soul, Part 1 (1983) and Big Bam Boom (1984).
The duo’s collection of No. 1 singles include “Rich Girl” (Also No. 1 R&B charts), “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” (No. 1 R&B), “Maneater” and “Out of Touch.” Their Top 10 singles include “She’s Gone” (No. 1 R&B), “Sara Smile,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” “Say it Isn’t So,” “Everything Your Heart Desires,” “Family Man,” “Adult Education,” “Did It In A Minute” and “Method of Modern Love.” In 1987, the RIAA recognized Daryl Hall & John Oates as the number-one selling duo in music history, a record they hold to this day.
In 2003, the legendary duo was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2008, they were honored at BMI’s Pop Awards with the Icon Award, and in 2014, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2016, they together received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The duo has recently toured with Tears For Fears, Train, Allen Stone and more. Watch Daryl Hall’s and John Oates’ lively performance of “Maneater” from Daryl Hall And John Oates: Live in Dublin:
Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford have been compared to Lennon and McCartney since “Take Me I’m Yours,” their first release in 1978, blasted the band into the forefront of the UK music scene. The legendary duo have since written all of their hits as well as recorded 15 studio albums, 14 compilation albums, four live albums, one extended play and 48 singles. Following their hits including “Tempted,” “Black Coffee in Bed,” “Hourglass,” “Cool For Cats”, “Up The Junction” and “Pulling Mussels From The Shell,” they established themselves as two of the most prolific songwriters of their time with each amassing a wealth of melody-rich earworms over the past four decades as both Squeeze and solo artists. They have also received an Ivor Novello award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music, the Nordoff-Robbins Icon Award and the Mojo Icon Award.
Singer-songwriter, KT Tunstall enchants and engages with every song, and that’s why she continues to resonate not only among fans, but throughout pop culture at large. Scotland born and now Los Angeles based, KT Tunstall emerged with her 2004 classic debut Eye To The Telescope spawning such international hits as “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” and “Suddenly I See”, which won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song in 2006. That same year she won her first BRIT Award for Best British Female Artist, and earned Grammy and Mercury Prize nominations in 2007. KT has released six albums internationally, to date: Eye to the Telescope (2004), Drastic Fantastic (2007), Tiger Suit (2010), Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon (2013), KIN (2016) and WAX (2018), cementing her reputation as a major recording talent, as well as a mesmerizing live artist.
