|L to R: Hall & Oates celebrate platinum sales with execs Jeremy Holiday and Adam Block (Legacy Recordings) and manager Jonathan Wolfson|
Daryl Hall and John Oates may not currently spend much time (OK, any time) recording new music as a duo. Yet, as Hall & Oates, the Philadelphia-born, blue-eyed-soul twosome continue to create new work apart, host new milestones as a unit and tour together. On Sunday, July 10, 2016 beginning at 9 PM EST, the newest Hall & Oates show will stream live from Camden, NJ's BB&T Pavillion exclusively on Yahoo Music. Live Nation TV will present the July 10 show with a stream lasting for 24 hours at this Yahoo.com link. To see Hall & Oates tour in person (with opening acts Trombone Shorty and Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings) visit Ticketmaster.com.
If you miss this Hall & Oates show, there's no shortage of the pair on television. Daryl Hall is the host of his own Live at Daryl's House, a program currently running on MTV Live (MTV's 24-hour dedicated music channel) that features the singer welcoming friends old and new into his home to sing for their supper. This season alone, the soulful Hall has played host to Cheap Trick, The O'Jays, Anderson East and one-time American Idol contestant Chris Daughtry.
As for his old buddy Oates, the folk-loving singer and guitarist launched Another Good Road TV special on Palladia in 2015 (a DVD with a bonus live CD is out now) focusing on American roots music. Oates is currently shopping a series based on that first special, as well as putting the finishing touches on his autobiography for early 2017 release.
Earlier in 2016, Hall & Oates also received a platinum plaque for 1 million in sales of The Very Best of Hall & Oates, their greatest hits package featuring smashes such as "Rich Girl" and "Sara Smile."
